The Vegg, Vegan Egg Yolk

Well, you should’ve seen my kitchen yesterday after receiving a pack of The Vegg in the mail. I do my washing on Fridays. It is also the day I receive our weekly fruit and vegetables –I order online and they home deliver on the same day. I tried to deal with fruit and vegetables and at the same time got the big blender out, already preparing The Vegg, reading about its use on the computer, brain-storming, taking notes.

The Vegg

This is how it all started: Earlier this month, I noticed a message on The Vegg’s Facebook page, offering a sample pack to vegetarian/vegan food bloggers who haven’t tried and blogged about The Vegg – Vegan Egg Yolk. So I sent in my details along with VegFusion’s web address. Although the offer was limited to first ten responses, I got in!

Some time ago, like some years ago me and my husband did this Vegetarian Indian cooking class together. Durng the class, we were introduced to certain different spices and one of them was black salt. I remember thinking to myself, this black salt thingy -it is actually pink- smells like eggshell. Who would’ve thought that one day someone with a compassionate heart will come up with a fantastic vegan product like The Vegg using black salt?

For those of you who haven’t heard about this incredible product, it is the world’s first vegan egg yolk –it is now officially a registered trademark, too. When you think about it, this is a very clever product. It tastes and smells like egg yolk.

List of ingredients: Fortified nutritional yeast (dry yeast, niacin, pyridoxine hydrochloride, riboflavin, thiamine hydrochloride, folic acid, B12), sodium alginate, black salt, beta carotene.

Directions: Blend contents of package (in blender or food processor –do not mix by hand –with 4 cups of water for 15 seconds or for 2-3 yolks blend 1 tsp Vegg powder with ¼ cup water in a mini blender.

The Vegg can be reached online: www.thevegg.com and this incredible product is sold in many countries -the list of suppliers available.

Tomorrow, I’ll post my first ever The Vegg containing recipe. So stay tuned. By the way, 10% of net sales donated to Compassion Over Killing.
