This is AMAZING stuff! It tastes exactly like soft boiled egg yolks to me! I really missed them since becoming a vegan almost 40 years ago! I made up a batch of 4 "yolks" and added salt and pepper...dipped my dry toast in it and it was heaven! I even sprinkle the powder on my JUST Egg folded eggs, and it's sooooo good! I finally have the taste of eggs again! Love this stuff!
1 Tbsp lemon juice 50g vegan margarine 1/4 cup soy sour cream or plain yogurt Warm up and mix in metal bowl on double boiler. Once warm and mixed add 1 tsp vegg yolk powder. Mix aggressively with stick blender until combined. Remove from heat and mix in 1/4 tsp mustard and salt to taste.
I have to add another review as I found another way to use this which I'll call "the lazy person's way", which applies to me 100%. I absolutely LOVE this stuff, and was so happy to see someone else mention the method I use. This is in reply to the "Vury Tasty" review from Anonymous of Coral Springs, Florida on 4/9/2013. They said to just sprinkle directly on the food. This is pretty much what I do as well and have it works wonderfully. I buy Amy's Tofu Scramble frozen dinner (brkfst) and I used to measure, mix and then drizzle the Vegg over it, which was great, BUT for even less hassle I just started sprinkling directly on the scramble, thickly, and then what I do is drizzle a little water evenly over the sprinkled Vegg. I think it works great and does have that yolk flavor for the scramble, and thick too. You can adjust and sprinkle as little or as much as you want. I like it to be strong tasting and thick, so I think this accomplishes that. I've also tried the french toast mix and love that too! Tastes just like what I remember as a kid. Way to go again!!! (just keep working on that scramble mix, pleeeaaassseeee, :) .....). I also, as many have said, love dipping vegan toast w/Earth Balance in this Vegg, tastes EXACTLY like a yolk, AMAZING.
I found that if I sprinkle The Vegg on top of the water and then use a product called Areolatte (BB&B about $20) - meant for frothing milk for lattes - it mixes The Vegg quickly and with PERFECT consistency every time. Important to add it to the water and not the reverse. Makes a huge difference in how it turns out. LOVE this product and the Baking Mix one. Use them most every day!!
