This recipe is typical of vegan hard boiled egg for salad. Egg white portion fine. Yolk could use some improvement in mouth feel:


2 Tbsp vegan dried instant mashed potatoes, dehydrated flakes or powder 1 tsp nutritional yeast ¼ tsp turmeric (use a little less if you prefer) ¼ tsp kala namak salt 1 tsp potato starch 3 1/3 ounces hot water 1 tsp vegan margarine or 1 tsp refined pure coconut oil 1 tsp sunflower or canola oil

Some vegan hard boiled egg products coming onto market recently. Mycoprotein being one of their ingredients I don't see getting ahold of. But maybe lecithin would help?

Any other add ins to make yolk less like mash potato?

I use a commercial yolk flavor to replace kala namak so this is strictly a texture question.

    What's the actual problem? Is it too soft? Too starchy? Describe the result you are getting.
