After turning vegan, one of the things I missed were eggs, especially scrambled eggs.

Dairy was quite easy to replace. Depending on which form, I had oat milk, cashew cheese, coconut yoghurt etc. But, when it came to eggs, most of the recipes I found online were quite complex. All I wanted was to quickly prepare an eggy brunch in those off days (when I woke up late and feeling lazy-ish).

Eventually I found a simple recipe online, tried it and I loved it. With time, I started tailoring it to my taste.

Nowadays, this recipe has been roughly modified and you can find plenty of versions of it online. I hope that you, the reader, will do the same as I did. Take this recipe and make it your own. But, first, try it as it is.

Tip: I always add 1/4 tsp salt. If your taste buds are accustomed to saltier flavours, you can always add more salt at the end. And, the next time you make it, you’ll know exactly how much to add from the start.
