Vegan McDonalds Egg McMuffin

This Vegan McDonalds Egg McMuffin is the breakfast of all weekend breakfasts.

Let’s be honest: vegan or not, most of us probably remember trips to McDonalds from or childhood.

My parents didn’t take my brother and me that often when we were little, so it was a very special treat when we finally got to go. The usual occasion was after a long day trip or after being out for a birthday day out – and I can also remember that we’ve gone for McDonalds breakfast twice on a Sunday, when they first introduced the breakfast option in Germany (yes, we did not always have breakfast at McDonalds!)

Childhood memories aside, it was manifested as a special treat in my mind, so I’m not surprised that I ended up getting breakfast from the drive through every time I drove to college in Cologne in my early adult years. A dangerous habit! But it was simply on my mind as a comfort food, and I really needed some comfort after getting up at 5am to make it to my courses on time (I lived an hour’s drive away from Cologne)

My go to order was always the Egg McMuffin – and back then I wasn’t even aware that the Muffin was actually an English muffin, and also did not know yet that I would one day be calling that country my home 😉

And let me tell you something amazing: making a vegan version of it, that’s also super tasty, is not magic & actually super easy!

So let’s make the magic happen!

Description

  1. Let’s start with the tofu! I used a pack of Cauldron Tofu in this case and I sliced the block in half lengthwise. Using a big round cookie cutter I cut a round slice of tofu of the same diameter as the English muffin.
  2. Add a splash of oil to a non-stick pan and sprinkle the Kala Namak into it. Let the salt dissolve a little in the oil, then add the slice of tofu to the pan once it’s sizzling hot. Fry the tofu slice on both sides until golden – make sure not to move it around to much. It can also help to press the slice into the pan with a ladle to make the edges nice and crispy! Season with a little pepper.
  3. Slice your muffin and lightly toast the slices, then spread the hummus on both of them.
  4. Let’s assemble! Add the spinach/salad to the bottom slice. Place the tofu on top, then let the vegan cheese & avocado follow. Add the tomato ketchup and then place the top half of the muffin on top. And voila!
  5. Admire & enjoy!

Ingredients

  • about 1 block of tofu (you’ll need a slice of about 1 inch thickness per muffin)
  • a handful of salad or fresh spinach
  • an English muffin
  • a slice of vegan cheese
  • a sprinkle of kala namak (black salt)
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/2 avocado (cause: every vegan muffin should include avocado ;))

Have you ever re-created any vegan McDonalds dishes – or their vegan version? I’m kind of tempted to recreate a Vegan McDonalds Big Mac or the Fish-o-Filet that I remember from the nineties. Do they even still serve that last one nowadays? You can probably tell that I’ve gotten a little rusty when it comes to the McDonalds menu!

I hope you’ll enjoy this Vegan McDonalds Egg McMuffin recipe, let me know if there’s another item of the McDonalds menu that you’d love to have re-created in a vegan version, love getting creative with these in the kitchen 😉
