Scarily Realistic Vegan ‘Eggy Bread’

Before I became vegan I used to love the taste of eggs, and although scrambled tofu is awesome in its own right, it used to sometimes miss that taste I believed you could only get from actual eggs.

Then I discovered black salt!

Black salt (kala namak) has a strong sulfuric flavor, so I wouldn’t use it to replace other salts in everything, but it’s perfect to use when you want that eggy flavor, like in this recipe for veggy bread! Serve this veggy bread with baked beans, grilled mushrooms, grilled tomatoes and a vegan sausage to make a perfect vegan English breakfast. This time I used a day old French baguette in place of the slices of bread.
