Also, for cream cheese lovers, Kite Hill makes an incredible, delicious, cruelty-free cream cheese out of almond milk.
For butter, my favorite is Earth Balance. It's better than dairy butter!
Anyway, on to the "eggs"!
1. Soy Free Scramble (from "Nouveau Raw')
This recipe is from: http://nouveauraw.com/raw-recipies/breakfast/vegan-tofu-less-scrambled-eggs/
Ingredients:Yields 2 cups scrambled eggs
- 1 1/2 cups plain almond milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 2 tsp agar powder or 2 Tbsp agar flakes
- ¼ tsp kala namak (black salt)
- 1/4 tsp turmeric powder
- Place the water, agar, salt and turmeric in a small saucepan. Turn the heat on medium-high and whisk until it starts to bubble. Reduce the heat to medium and continue to whisk for 4 minutes. We need to make sure the agar dissolves.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the almond milk. Move quickly because the agar will start to gel if left to cool too long.
- Pour the mixture into a fry pan or baking pan. Place in the fridge for 2 minutes. No need to oil the pan.
- Remove from the fridge and with a spatula, scrap along the bottom of the pan as though you were scrambling eggs. Return to the fridge for 2 minutes, remove and keep scrapping. Repeat this process about 4-6x or until it starts to hold shape, resembling scrambling eggs.
- Eat right away or store in the fridge for 1-2 days.

3. Wildcard - The Very Unique " Peyton Chiacado Omelette"
This one was created randomly by my significant other, who made it, then thought it looked gross and wanted to compost it without even trying it first. I, however, insisted on trying it and...I LOVED IT!! I'm not giving you a photo because it does look kind of unappetizing but ... it's basically a couple spoonfuls of chia seeds with water and a mashed ripe avocado and maitake mushrooms, to taste, fried in a little bit of olive oil until it's crispy - almost like hash browns. This definitely does not taste like eggs but I call it a "Peyton Chiacado Omelette" and I love it.
