Wow, I’m so obsessed with this vegan fried egg! The texture is really awesome, and the addition of Kala Namak makes it super eggy. Kala namak also known as ‘black salt’, is a volcanic rock salt with a sulfuric taste. It’s pretty mind-blowing how much it makes it tastes like egg. You can purchase it online or in Indian shops.

We’ve been asked a lot recently about why a vegan would want to replicate animal food, and although I can’t speak for everyone, we decided to adopt a plant-based diet for ethical and health reasons, not because we didn’t enjoy the taste of animal products anymore. And sometimes it’s just fun to recreate some classic food such as the classic brunch item, fried egg on avocado toast! So if you’ve been wanting to enjoy it without breaking an egg, this is the recipe for you!
