No More Eggs
When I first became vegan, I thought that cheese was going to be the hardest thing to quit. To my surprise, the hardest thing to replace was eggs. The Hubbs and I relied on them heavily for breakfast, from soyrizo & egg breakfast burritos, to eggs benedict, sunny side up on avo toast, or chilaquiles. They were a main source of sustenance for us, and when we chose to not eat any more animal products, this was where we struggled the most.
Vegan Egg Substitutes
We got used to tofu “scrambles” which we still use today, and using chickpea flour to emulate a frittata-like texture as our egg substitutes, and they definitely work. Check out my Breakfast Burrito for the soyrizo/tofu scramble, and my Mushroom & Beet Green Panisse for the frittata method. But when Just Egg came onto the market, everything changed. It’s a plant-based version of scrambled eggs, that is pretty dang close to the real thing. It allows me to have dishes like this, cruelty free which are near and dear to my family’s hearts!
Huevos Rancheros, Egyptian Style
So, we have our vegan eggs that we use in this dish – Huevos Rancheros. Huevos Rancheros is a dish from Mexico that translates to “ranch-style eggs”, and at it’s core is composed of tortillas (whatever kind you’ve got), eggs, and traditionally salsa fresca, or fresh salsa. For this version, we are marrying the two cuisines of Mexico and Egypt, by using an Egyptian tomato sauce in this dish. The Signature Tomato Sauce from Misteka Foods is absolutely perfect for this dish with it’s flavors similar to that of Mexican cuisine. The green pepper and spices, along with the cooked fresh tomatoes are phenomenal alongside re-fried beans and Just Egg scramble. Add avocado and fresh cilantro, and you’re in breakfast heaven.
Misteka Foods Signature Tomato Sauce is available in 32 ounce containers for $13.85 through Koshary by Misteka’s website, under Sauce and Dressings. Other sauces are available as well. The garlic sauce would be a great drizzle for the Huevos Rancheros! This sauce needs to be refrigerated, so it’s available locally in and around Clarksville, MD.

Vegan Huevos Rancheros
- 1 Cup Vegetable Oil for frying the tortillas
- 3 Cups Misteka Foods’ Signature Sauce
- 15 Ounce Can Refried Beans
- 8 Corn Tortillas
- ½ Teaspoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 Bottle Just Egg
- ¼ Teaspoon Salt
- ¼ Cup Fresh Chopped Cilantro
- 1 Avocado
- ½ Cup Vegan Sour Cream
- Heat 1 cup of oil in a small cast-iron pan over medium heat. While the oil heats up, heat the Signature Sauce in a medium pot over low heat, stirring occasionally.
- Fry one tortilla at a time for 20-40 seconds each side until crispy and golden brown. Remove to paper towels to drain.
- Place the refried beans in a microwave safe bowl, and break up with a spoon. Cover with plastic wrap, and heat in a microwave on high for 5 minutes, stirring halfway through. Mix thoroughly, adding a little water to achieve a more loose, easily spreadable consistency. Keep covered until ready to use.
- Just before serving, heat a non-stick pan over medium heat, and add the entire bottle of Just Egg. Season with salt. Scramble the eggs using a rubber spatula, until the eggs are set.
- To serve, place two fried tortillas on each plate. Divide the refried beans on top of each tortilla, a spoonful of Tomato Sauce, followed by the egg scramble. Top with more sauce if desired, and garnish with cilantro, avocado and a drizzle of vegan sour cream.
