Vegan Hard Boiled Egg (How to make it)

 

Vegan Hard Boiled Egg

WunderEggs, the first 100% plant-based alternative to hard-boiled eggs, will soon be available from Austin-based firm Crafty Counter. The counterpart employs whole-food plant components and is free of wheat, soy, and gluten. Instead, it relies on nuts as a source of protein, primarily cashews and almonds, as well as coconut milk, turmeric, and black salt.

According to the manufacturer, it was created using a "unique procedure" to replicate the flavor, feel, and sensory experience of genuine hard-boiled chicken eggs.

Hema Reddy, founder and CEO of Crafty Counter, claims that the inspiration for the company's latest product came during the pandemic, when it became pretty apparent how industrial farms were contributing to not only climate change but also the rise of zoonotic illnesses.

50 billion birds, mostly male chicks, are killed each year for food, and hens are made to suffer for an average of 34 hours for every egg they produce on factory farms. 95% of traditional eggs are produced worldwide in factory farms using battery cages for the hens.

"During the first 2 weeks of Covid, when our nation's food systems started to fail, I got the idea for WunderEggs. The epidemic was just the final straw for me because I already knew how extensive factory farming contributed to climate change, Reddy said.

"We are very thrilled to introduce the vegan revolution to all the fans of plant-based cuisine who haven't had a boiled egg in a while. They are no longer need to forgo a beloved breakfast item or snack.

Whole-food vegan egg made from plants

According to Crafty Counter, in order to appeal to the expanding numbers of health-conscious consumers who are driving the clean label movement, they have made the decision to employ whole food plant-based components as much as possible.

"We don't want highly processed analogs," said Angela McElwee, former CEO of Gaia Herbs, who was welcomed to sample the new WunderEggs as part of Crafty Counter's R&D process. "The climate and moral considerations of eating animal products have many people who are seeking alternatives, but we don't want highly processed analogs."

"We seek wholesome, authentic food. WunderEggs are manufactured with whole-food plant-based components, but they taste exactly like hard-boiled eggs.

Before the end of 2021, Crafty Counter will introduce WunderEggs, which will round out its current vegan product line of three flavors of plant-based Wunder Nuggets made from chickpeas, lentils, chia seeds, cabbage, and carrots.

Market for vegan eggs

The vegan egg market is one that is positioned for quick expansion, even though the overall plant-based retail industry has seen significant growth in recent months, with U.S. sales expected to hit an all-time high of $7 billion in 2020. Sales of plant-based eggs increased by approximately 168% locally year over year.

In addition to Eat Just, a pioneer brand that introduced its mung bean-based JUST Egg back in 2013, more startup companies are now breaking into the market. These include Singapore's Float Foods, Asia's first commercial plant-based whole egg replacement with distinctive egg yolk and whites, and Canada's Nabati Foods, which recently announced that it will soon introduce a lupin bean-based liquid egg.

Recipes

For the egg white:
 2 cups Unsweetened Rice MilkUnsweetened Almond Milk is also a good choice. It makes the egg white a bit creamer, and softer, so if you liked soft boiled eggs, this is your go to. If you liked really overcooked, hard boiled eggs, like I did, go with Rice Milk.
 1 tbsp Agar Agar
 ¼ tsp Kala Namak
 1 tsp Mushroom bullion powder(optional)
For the egg yolk:
 6 tbsp Instant mashed potatoes flakes
 100 ml Hot water(Add slowly, and stop when enough. It should be less then 100)
 ½ tsp Turmeric powder(may need even less- add slowly, and mix!)
 2 tsp Nutritional Yeast
 1 tsp Kala Namak
 2 tsp Tapioca or potato starch
 2 tsp Vegan unsalted margarine or butter
 2 tsp Coconut oil

METHOD

In a small saucepan, whisk together the egg white mix. Heat the mixture over medium heat until it comes to a simmer, then remove from the heat.

Transfer the mixture to a glass bowl. Let it sit, stirring occasionally, but careful not to make air bubbles, until it appears to be thickening, but is still liquid, and easy to pour.
Once the mixture is ready, pour it into the eggs molds- careful not to make air bubbles, and refrigerate for 20-30 mins.
