I was in a webshop to order some things I needed and there I saw a package of Vegan Easy Egg from Orgran. I had come across this one once, but I had never tried it. So I was very curious and wanted to test it.
Make an egg out of a powder
I used to buy No Egg from the same brand, an egg substitute to replace eggs in eg cake. I have not used that for years because I now work more with home, garden and kitchen materials and therefore make a vegan cake without special ingredients.
What can you make with Orgran’s Vegan easy egg?
The package says that it corresponds to 15 eggs, but they also speak of 5 portions. So actually it is the intention to always use 3 “eggs”.
You can use it for:
- vegan scrambled eggs
What is in Vegan easy egg and what is not?
Chickpea Flour, Maize Flour, Vegetable Gums (Stabilisers): Methylcellulose, Carrageenan; Vegetable Protein, Dextrose from Maize, Salt, Turmeric, Raising Agent: Calcium Carbonate, Garlic Powder
What surprises me is that there is no kala namak because kala namak provides an egg taste. So I feared that it would not really taste like eggs and when I tasted I indeed missed the egg taste.
Vegan easy egg is a product of the Orgran brand. All Orgran products are:
- gluten free
- wheat free
- without eggs
- dairy free
- yeast free
- nut free
- GMO free
This product is also low in saturated fats, soy-free, cholesterol-free, kosher, a good source of fiber, and contains 7.6 grams of protein per serving.
Many allergens are excluded, so ideal if you are allergic. This product also won the “free from” food awards in London in 2018.
How do you make Vegan easy egg?
- 50 grams of vegan easy egg powder
- 240 ml of water
- 2.5 teaspoons of oil (you can also take 1 tbsp)
Whisk powder, water, and oil. Heat a little oil in a pan. Bake the mixture on both sides for an omelette, stir in for scrambled eggs. Bake it with vegetables if you like.
The powder looks yellow like an egg through the turmeric.
Review easy egg
It looks good in terms of view and structure, but there is still some work to be done on taste. By adding some kala namak to the mixture yourself, you get the egg flavor that is missing.
I made an omelet with it and filled it with tomato, cucumber, onion and spring onions. A little soy cream and some black pepper on top.
I also made vegan scrambled eggs with it and fried it together with pieces of Ikea sausage, tomato, onion, and a little bit of mushroom. When mixing all the ingredients of Easy egg, I added 0.5 tsp kala namak since I clearly missed that when making the omelet. I liked this whole.
Have you ever tried this egg substitute? What did you make and what did you think of it? Let me know in a comment at the bottom of this page.
