This is totally brilliant. Zoa of The Airy Way devised this incredible recipe for vegan egg yolks, which I made last night, and it is absolutely mindblowingly incredible. As a long-time vegan who misses runny yellow egg yolks more than anything else in the world, I would like to say that this recipe may have changed my life a little. And it was incredibly easy.

I made a few alterations to the recipe, so I’ll post my version here. For hers, visit her post. She does hers in the microwave, but I prefer to do things on the stove – plus I have a really small saucepan. This recipe bears doubling quite well.
Vegan Egg Yolks (makes 2)
1 tbsp Earth Balance (or other vegan margarine)
1/2 tbsp Vegenaise
1+ tbsp vegetable juice (I used V8)
2 tbsp vegetable broth (or 1 tbsp nutritional yeast and 2 tbsp water)
1/4 tsp turmeric
1 tsp tapioca starch
1/8 tsp black salt (optional)
Combine all ingredients in your smallest saucepan over medium heat. Whisk slowly but constantly until it’s got a pudding-like consistency. Remove from heat and let cool slightly, re-mix, then use as yolk. I spooned mine on top of some tofu scramble.
