  53. Helen Says:

    I can’t wait for this recipe to be published! I think hard boiled eggs are the one thing I miss most (poached on toast is second so I’m going to get the ingredients to try your “fried” eggs. Is this recipe in your book?

  54. Miriam Says:

    Helen Hi there. This recipe is not in my book as it was created subsequent to it’s publication. Let me know what you think about the fried eggs. 🙂

  55. Kari Says:

    Miriam, I got my book yesterday…………soooooo HAPPY! Fabulous book. So well organized, photographed, formatted….very welcoming……a block of perfection,indeed, just like it’s author and creator…….YOU ROCK! I plan on getting some more for gifts……..MAHALO!!!

  56. Miriam Says:

    Kari Hi there and thanks so much for dropping by here with your wonderful comment which has put a great smile on my face. I would ask you for one thing if possible though since your words as they are are too valuable for me – can you copy and paste them as they are on as a review (there are others there too already !), but yours rocks and would be appreciated and seen by others there, HUGE THANKS in return if so 🙂 . Best your way in the meantime ! 🙂

  57. Martha Bellew Smith Says:

    Is this in the cookbook? Did I miss this in the cookbook? I can hardly wait to make these.

  58. Miriam Says:

    Martha Hi there. No, they are not published in my book because they were created after the submission date of my recipes for my book. I await confirmation on the date they may be published and will make that news public as/if/when this date is confirmed. Sorry about that. Hope you are enjoying the recipe repertoire in the book in the meantime. Best as always to you ! 🙂

  59. Marty Says:

    I cannot find the recipe. Is it in the cookbook? I’d really love to make these.

  60. Miriam Says:

    It is not in the cookbook but will be published in an upcoming magazine – will announce which and when closer to the time. Thanks.

  61. Judy Says:

    So it will be in the Vegan magazine? The UK or the US version? Or are they the same?

  62. Miriam Says:

    Will announce this closer to the time Judy ! Cheers ! 🙂

  63. Alessandra Says:

    is this recipe on your book?

  64. Miriam Says:

    No Alessandra, I’m afraid not – as the recipe was created shortly after I submitted my manuscript to my publishers.

  65. Lainey Says:

    Any update on the release of the recipe or the publication?

  66. Miriam Says:

    Not presently Lainey.

  67. Michelle Says:

    I want you to know that I check periodically to see if an announcement has been made… I didn’t even countdown to my wedding this enthusiastically… kidding… not really.

  68. Mike Says:

    Would like an update on this teaser.

  69. Catherine Todd Says:

    Where is the recipe for the fried eggs? I can’t find either one.

  70. Miriam Says:

    Here it is for you Catherine

  71. Fernando Says:

    I’ve been checking back since May for the recipe announcement on these fabulous “eggs”!. Just wondering, it’s been 7 months. Is this still on track to be published in the aforementioned magazine?

  72. Miriam Says:

    This recipe will be published in the 2nd issue of the new online magazine VEGAN FOR LIFE of January/February 2014 (1st issue of the magazine will be published 18th November 2013).

  73. Renata Zelazna Says:

    Hey, I trawled the internet and did not find any information where I can buy the magazine (and the recipe). HELP! (I live in Germany.)

  74. Miriam Says:

    Renata Hi, here it is you can subscribe from the site. 🙂

  75. Renata Zelazna Says:

    Thanks for the link but I don;t have a credit card and PayPal payments are mot possible 🙁

  76. Miriam Says:

    Sorry about that Renata ! 🙁

  77. Renata Zelazna Says:

    Ah, SORRY! I thought you will offer me another solution. A “SORRY” DOES NOT SOLVE ANYTHING! I AM UPSET NOW!

  78. Miriam Says:

    Renata, some people don’t even bother to say sorry – I did not even say sorry because I had done something wrong, not at all. Let me explain, if the digital distributors that we are with do not offer a Paypal option facility then that is a situation beyond our control and therefore there isn’t another option for me to offer you.

    If the distributors did offer a Paypal opton for the magazine (which they don’t), then I would earn more from it, so it pays me to have Paypal as that would mean more buyers, but they don’t offer that as part of the package.

    I said sorry because it’s the civil thing to do. I certainly do not aceept your rudeness on my site. By the way, you might like to know that the other 2 leading Vegan Magazines do not offer Paypal either.

  79. Wendi Says:

    They look great Miriam, look forward to the recipe.

  80. Wendi Says:

    Just read the magazine cover to cover Miriam, can’t see the boiled egg recipe in there anywhere. Just the picture with a link that brings me back here.

  81. Wendi Says:

    Ah!!! Just re-read it, (above) gonna be in the 2nd issue. Sorry. 😉

  82. Renata Zelazna Says:

    This is a real shame and if I was you I would add other distribution channels – as it is now, both parties loose, so why stick to it? For example, there are vegan stores which accept PP, for example Vegan Essentials…

  83. Miriam Says:

    Sorry Renata, I don’t know what you mean ???

  84. Renata Zelazna Says:

    I mean – accept my Paypal payment please 😉
    Or are you obliged to sell the recipe via that distributor only (lose rights to it)?
    It frustrates me that I cannot buy it. I am eager to make these, even bought the egg moulds, agar and black salt in anticipation…

  85. Miriam Says:

    Renata Hi, presently the recipe is not being released yet, sorry.

  86. Nancy Dezotelle Says:

    Please send me the recipe or where I can buy the book, as I love eggs but know I shouldn’t eat them. Thank you nancy

  87. Miriam Says:

    Nancy Hi – the recipe is not yet published. Go to my Egg Mayonnaise Sandwich and enjoy the ‘egg’ there, it’s cholesterol free and delicious ! Here is the link for my book Hope this helps. 🙂

  88. Renata Says:

    Miriam, whenever it becomes available – I would like to buy it. I will watch this space. Regards!

  89. Miriam Says:

    Thanks for your comment – the date has not been confirmed I’m afraid.

  90. V3nom Says:

    Hello Miriam.
    Sorry for this second post, but my precedent just disappeared.

    I was about to buy the second issue of Vegan for life, but I can’t assure myself your hard boiled eggs recipe is edited in this one. Can you confirm ?

    At home, we are very curious to try this kinf of magic cooking… 🙂

  91. Miriam Says:

    At present I cannot say when the recipe will be published I’m afraid, but it probably will be at some point in the future, but until then I hope you enjoy the other recipes from my blog ! Best your way. 🙂

  92. V3nom Says:

    Your others recipes are also really interresting. We’ll soon try to do your (our) fried eggs.
    And I’m trying to convince my friend to try these small spinash-olive-artichoke pies… ^^

  93. michele Says:

    Hi Miriam,any idea of which month to purchase the Vegan for Life Magazine which will have the Vegan Boiled Eggs recipe in,as its nearly 12mths now when it was first bought to our attention,thanks

  94. michele Says:

    I have just signed up for the $13 online subscription of Vegan For Life-Great mag

  95. Miriam Says:

    Michele Hi. The hardboiled egg recipe has not been published because my fried egg recipe was published and copied by another who went on to publish it without giving me a credit. I have therefore been advised not to publish it in the foreseeable future. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

  96. Miriam Says:

    Thanks and enjoy Michele. The next issue (issue 3) should be out later this week ! 🙂

  97. Christine Götz Says:

    Hi Miriam,
    This is SO understandable. Yes, please keep your secret as long as necessary. Or until forever ;o)
    In the meantime I just drop by from time to time just to look at these incredible hardboiled “eggs” 🙂 Thank you so much, Miriam, you are such a huge inspiration for so many of us. I LOVE your dishes!
    Good bless you.


  98. Christine Says:

    Haha could you please correct this. Of course I meant “god” not “good”.
    Uhhh so embarassing 😉

  100. Maria Says:

    Looks so good! Any news on the recipe? 🙂

  101. Miriam Says:

    Not yet Maria, sorry.

  102. Justina Says:

    Hi I’ve just found your website today and been looking at the fried egg recipe and the egg sandwich, I’ve already ordered the products to make these and excited! As I’ve never eaten an egg before in any form. I’ve just seen your hard boiled egg which you published the picture back in 2013 with no recipe on how to make it and I ready every comment left and seeing that a whole year has passed and no recipe. But just to let you know I just checked online and found your recipe straight away from another site, giving credit to your name ‘mouth watering vegan’ and your name.
    The person has put pictures of the hard boiled egg which is their own image, but strange how their isn’t any reviews or comments, maybe no one has found it or even looked.
    It is the recipe you made as it is the same ingredients that you have mentioned in your other egg products, the yolk.
    Oh no I was wrong after reading the method etc is does say it’s your picture that is used.

  103. Miriam Says:

    Justina Hi, the egg recipe you saw is based on my recipe and the author decided to fill in the blanks as it were. My egg recipes were stolen by another chef (nothing to do with where you have seen this one you are mentioning) who decided to have them published in his/her self published book and earn money off the back of my creations. To that end I have been advised not to publish this one. Hope you enjoy the other egg recipes from my blog.

  104. Justina Says:

    Its a shame to see that people out there have stolen the rights to your creativity. As you have definitely inspired people to create these ‘eggs’ and consume these rather than support the suffering of animals.
    I haven’t got all the products to make them yet myself, hopefully by the weekend I would have tried and tested them myself as well as surprise my family.
    I wanted to ask regarding the fried egg, you mentioned to freeze the tofu before using it so it’s more firmer, doesn’t the box contain water as well? Should I leave it in its container then freeze or check if there’s water and pour that out then freeze it?
    I’ve actually read all the reviews and you have done such a wonderful job, bet there’s so many people grinning their faces off knowing that they can easily make and eat an egg without feeling guilty and doing good for the environment.
    I will definitely write a comment on my feedback of YOUR creations 🙂

  105. MoonShineFun Says:

    These sure do look real. When I went Vegan, the day I moved out of my parents home at 18, and could choose what I wanted to eat. I started eating a plant based diet. Never would have thought to make plans into foods that look like foods carnivores eat. Like Veggie Burgers, tofu bacon, turkey and other such things resembling meat. I make salad dressing or dips for veggies from plants, but don’t get making foods that resemble meats, cheese, and now eggs. Sounds like many love the idea though. I’m just glad to see so many Vegans out there! Happy eating!

  106. Miriam Says:

    Thanks for your note. There are vegans that love food not resembling meat and dairy and others (especially newly converted to vegan folks) that feel safe that substitutes exist, and still others that just love all this fake meat and dairy. Bottom line is all this fake stuff is cruelty free and there is a demand for some people for it, so it’s good to keep as many folk as possible happy – once it’s vegan then it’s not hurting the animals. This is particularly important for ethical vegans. 🙂

  107. LuciaB Says:

    This is unbelievably awesome!

    Miriam, I’m obsessing over the fried egg, but I can’t access the recipe. \how can I have it? Please, please, please…

  108. Miriam Says:

    Lucia Hi there. Sadly my egg recipes have been plagiarized without permission and published. I hope to re-introduce them at a latter date in a publication of mine with other recipes. It is sad when this happens, but I was left with no choice but to withdraw them. Unfortunately, not every vegan chef is ethical and fair.

  109. Terry Says:

    I’m confused are you not legally able to just go ahead and post the recipe? Or you trying to make that $cratch? It just seems strange to get people amped up over something and not give them the option of making it themselves for over 2 years now. I’m sure a few people went out and bought real eggs cause they couldn’t find the recipe ;P Either way, you do you girl! They look great.

  110. Miriam Says:

    The recipe is there Terry in it’s entirety Just scroll down the page on the link.

  111. Donna Stevens Says:

    Looked and looked, clicked and clicked, googled and googles, and still could not fine the recipe. ??

  112. Miriam Says:

    Here it is Donna ! 🙂

  113. Sadie Says:

    Hello Miriam – I was wondering how far in advance it’s possible to make these hard boiled “eggs. “I’m going to make them for Passover and with about 30 people coming (!) I try to make everything as far in advance as possible. Do you think they’d last as much as a week?

  114. Miriam Says:

    Hi Sadie – I wouldn’t make them a week in advance. Prepare the whites 2-3 days before and the yolks the day before, otherwise they may dry out. Enjoy and give me some feedback after the event – and may be a photo we can post on our fb page ! Enjoy !
