What an oxymoron… Great for people with egg allergy + it’s vegan

Hvilken oxymoron… Perfekt for folk med ægge-allergi + det er vegansk

Vegan egg-free scrambled eggs

Some years ago I suddenly stopped stomaching eggs. It kind of happened from one day to another and I have no idea why. But it’s insanely annoying. If I unconsciously eat something, which contains a lot of egg, everything I’ve devoured for the last 24 hours comes up and I can absolutely not do anything but lie in by bed for 24 hours afterwards. Very nice huh?

This is why there – SADLY– almost aren’t any posts containing eggs on this blog. But oh, how I wish I could experiment with different beautiful quiches, learn how to make poached eggs, eat scrambled eggs for breakfast or snack and add boiled eggs to salads for a little extra protein.

For nogle år siden sagde min krop pludselig stop til æg. Det skete pretty much fra den ene dag til den anden og jeg har absolut ingen ide hvorfor. Men en ting er sikkert: Det er utroligt irriterende. Hvis jeg uvidende kommer til at spise noget med for meget øg I kommer alt hvad jeg har indtaget inden for de sidste 24 timer op igen og de næste 24 er jeg tøjret til sengen. Virkelig fedt…

Det er derfor der til min store ærgrelse ikke er særligt mange opskrifter med æg på denne blog. Men ej, hvor ville jeg ønske jeg kunne eksperimentere med smukke æggekager, lære at lave pocherede æg, spise scrambled eggs til morgenmad og putte kogte æg i salater for lidt mere protein.

I’ve missed anything egg so so much, so when I first heard about egg-free scrambled eggs I knew I HAD to make it.

And by now I know that I have to make it again.

And again.

And again. Because it’s so good

Jeg har virkelig savnet æg siden, så da jeg hørte om ægge-fri scrambled eggs, vidste jeg at DET måtte jeg prøve.

Og nu ved jeg at jeg MÅ prøve det igen.

Og igen.

Og igen. For det er SÅ godt!

A totally other thing that makes me extremely happy as of now: MUSICAL HAS STARTED AGAIN!

I have no idea why I tell you this. I’ve just been riding on a huge wave of happiness ever since Tuesday night. At first I was sad the team isn’t exactly the same as last year. ‘Cause Dreamland was one of the greatest adventures I’ll ever have. But then I figured there are still a lot of people left and the new ones seem awesome. And Emma and I have convinced three nice people from our school to try it.

Anyway, I’m just so insanely happy!!! And does there have to be a reason to tell when you are happy? (:

————————————————————————————————————————————–

En helt anden ting, der går mig utrolig glad for tiden: MUSICAL ER STARTET IGEN!

Jeg har absolut ingen ide hvorfor jeg fortæller dette. Jeg har bare reddet for en kæmpe bølge af glæde lige siden tirsdag aften. Først var jeg virkelig ked af at holdet ikke er det samme som sidste år. For Dreamland var virkelig et eventyr uden lige. Men så kom jeg til at tænke på at der stadig er en del tilbage fra sidste år, og de nye virker super flinke. Og Emma og jeg har overtalt nogle skønne mennesker fra klasen til at komme og prøve det på tirsdag.

Anyway, jeg er bare så helt ekstremt glad!! Og fortjener sådan en glæde ikke at blive delt? (:

 

NOTES

I added fresh turmeric because I missed the happy yellow colour.

I used Minimalist Baker’s method to make this tofu. But the rest I made up myself (;

LIDT NOTER

Jeg tilføjede frisk gurkemeje fordi jeg savnede den glade gule farve af æggeblommer.

Jeg brugte Minimalist Bakers metode til at lave denne scramble. Men opskriften i sig selv er min (;

 

Egg-free Scrambled Eggs

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Yield: 1 serving

Ingredients

  • 100 g. tofu
  • Half a small onion
  • Piece of turmeric root – size of a thumb nail
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Sides: Roasted asparagus, tomatoes, crumbled goats cheese

Instructions

  1. Place the tofu between two thick pieces of paper towels or other absorbent towel. Put something heavy - like a saucepan - on top of it and allow to soak up the liquid for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile chop the onion finely. Peel and grate the turmeric. Heat up the oil on a frying pan and fry the onion and turmeric for five minutes - or until the onion softens.
  3. With a fork, crumble the tofu and add it to the pan. Fry for another 5 minutes.
  4. Serve right away with whichever sides you want.

    I love your egg-less scrambled eggs! They look so yummy, love the asparagus too!

  6. woohoo! I love this. I’ve been missing scrambled eggs a lot lately. I must try this. I did find a restaurant in California that swaps eggs for tofu in any of their scrambles, which is the best. And they have my favorite chai tea. Hopefully I will get to visit it again soon!

  7. […] vegan, however you could fry a little firm tofu lightly in oil in place of the haloumi, and then scramble some tofu in place of the eggs. On the other hand,  if you feel the dish needs a lititle meaty […]

  8. […] Yet another oxymoron (remember my egg-free scrambled eggs?). I don’t know why but I really like oxymora. One of my favourite scenes of all time (movie or […]
