Ingredients

...for the egg white...

...for the yolk...

Instructions

  • Add the 3 ingredients for the egg white to a blender, and blend at maximum power for about a minute. Depending on the blender used, it may be necessary to clean the inside of the blender with a spatula a couple of times during the process.
  • Place silicone mould(s) on a flat baking tray, ready to be easily moved.
  • Transfer the silken tofu mixture to a pan and start heating on medium-low, stirring constantly until it reaches the temperature of around 90°C (195°F), that means just before it starts to boil (it's not essential checking it with a thermometer). As soon as the mix begins to form the first bubbles, you will notice that it will tend to thicken almost instantly.
  • It is the time to transfer the mixture as quickly as possible into the silicone moulds. Fill the cavities generously and, again with a spatula, remove the excess from each cavity while trying to press the mixture as much as possible to prevent air bubbles from forming.
  • Allow to cool at room temperature for 30 minutes, then you can transfer everything to the refrigerator.
  • Meanwhile prepare the egg yolk sauce according to this recipe.
  • Stir into the sauce the dehydrated potato flakes, and let this mixture cool down too.
  • Once the egg whites are firm enough, remove them out of the silicone moulds.
  • With a sharp knife, remove any excess until the two halves match perfectly to a perfect egg shape (use the off cuts for sandwiches or salads).
  • Now, using a watermelon baller, remove a half sphere from the base of each egg half, right where the yolk would be.
  • Fill the hole with the yolk mixture, and there you have your vegan hard-boiled eggs ready to be enjoyed or featured in our favourite recipes.
