Experiments with the Follow Your Heart Vegan Egg

If you follow me on instagram, you might have seen that I got some the Follow Your Heart vegan egg to try out and try it out I did! I spent a day in the kitchen trying out some recipes, to see how well this egg replacer functions.

I am going to say upfront, I'm excited about it! It is brilliant to just scramble up to have on toast, for breakfast. With ketchup of course....


But I also made:

Veggie frittatas (so good!)

'Duck & Egg' Fried Rice

And a bakewell tart. This wasn't a 100% success but it was suuuuuper tasty!

If you want a more in-depth review, check out my video that I made by clicking HERE, or the video below the jump. The video also details instructions on how to make the recipes shown in this post too! Win. Recipes for the fried rice and the frittatas are also below, along with a link to the bakewell tart recipe that I used.

Have you tried the FYH Egg yet? Let me know what you think of it if you have. I am really excited about trying more experiments with this product and would love to hear what everyone's been baking up!

My FYH Vegan Eggsperiments (hehe) Video


The bakewell tart recipe I used was a Mary Berry recipe, via the BBC site. I replaced the butter with vegan margarine/shortening and the egg with 60ml/quarter cup of made up FYH egg. (It's about half of one 'egg' measurement on the box!)

Frittatas:
1 tsp olive oil
1 small red onion, finely diced
1/2 a red pepper, finely diced
1 clove of garlic
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1/2 tspthyme
1 tsp paprika
6 tablespoons FYH vegan egg
345ml of iced water
1/4 cup vegan cream or non dairy milk 
1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1/4 cup FYH vegan cheddar or other vegan cheese, grated

See the above video for the method. These took 30 minutes at 180°C / 350°F
'Duck & Egg' Fried Rice
1 tin of mock duck, chopped into bite sized pieces and browned in olive oil
3/4 cup of peas, defrosted
1 scrambled up FYH egg (2 tbsps made up as per box instructions)
1 pack of brown or white cooked basmati (250g cooked rice)
Chinese 5 spice powder to taste
Soy Sauce to taste
Please see above video for method.

  4. I have been lucky enough to get my hands on some here in Australia thanks to care packages. I really enjoyed reading and watching your review of it. So far I have only used it once to scramble it up, but I am very keen to try making other things with it.
    I really liked your idea of putting it in fried rice, that is definitely something I will be doing.
