Make your own vegan scrambled eggs with tofu and Kala Namak - Here's how!

Do you want to get a vegan scrambled eggs do it yourself? Perfect! Then I have the recipe for the perfect scrambled egg alternative for you! It's easy to make with tofu, the sulphur salt kala namak, turmeric and a little vegetable oil.

In this short article, I would like to show you how I went about it.

Why cook vegan scrambled eggs with tofu?

Before we start cooking and enjoying, a quick answer to the question: Why all this? Personally, I was motivated to cook vegan scrambled eggs for the following reasons:

  • Long shelf life of tofu: Tofu from the supermarket will keep for ages, whereas eggs can go bad after just under a week. (see Reduce food waste)
  • Almost identical taste: The vegan scrambled eggs end up tasting so incredibly delicious and similar that I was really surprised the first time I tried them. The egg-like taste is mainly due to the sulphurous Kala Namak salt.
  • Also comparable to the eye: The turmeric powder makes the tofu yellowish in color and is basically no different from classic scrambled eggs.
  • No factory farming: Become a vegetarian, is already an important step! However, the egg is a vegetarian product that the Factory farming, and all the problems that come with it. (see also: Why being a vegetarian is not enough)
  • No cruelty to animals: In factory farming, these sensitive animals are fattened at record speed and kept in cramped cages. Added to this is the development of laying performance. In 1950, a hen laid around 120 eggs a year - today it is already 300 eggs.₁ Whether organic or conventional eggs - in the end, we exploit the animals for our taste. Personally, I don't think that's right.
