Vegan "Egg" Salad Breakfast Bowl
1 hr + 5 min
Total1 hr + 5 min
4medium potatoes, cut into 1 cm cubes
1 Tbsp (15 mL)vegetable oil
1 tsp (2 g)onion powder
½ tsppaprika powder
½ tspdried rosemary
¼ tspground black pepper
20cherry tomatoes, on the vine
Vegan "egg" salad
1 tsp (5 mL)vegetable oil
23 oz (650 g)firm tofu, pressed
¼ tspground turmeric
¼ tspground black pepper
½ cup (120 mL)
1 tsp (2 g)curry powder
1stalk green onion
2 tsp (10 mL)vegetable oil
6cloves garlic, minced
10 cups (300 g)fresh spinach
1 Tbsp (15 mL)
1 tsp (5 mL)
- Preheat the oven to 390°F (200°C). Add the potatoes to a baking tray and drizzle over the oil. Toss to coat.
- Then sprinkle over the onion powder, paprika, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Toss again, then bake for 20 minutes.
- Remove from the oven, stir, and now add the vine of tomatoes to the tray to bake with the potatoes. Return to the oven for another 20 - 25 minutes, or until golden.
- Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan on medium-high. Crumble in the tofu with your hands. Cook for 5 - 7 minutes, stirring throughout. The aim is to get the tofu soft and spongy, but not too crispy.
- Then add in the salt, turmeric, and pepper. Cook for an additional 1 - 2 minutes while stirring so that the spices toast.
- Remove from the heat, and transfer the tofu to a bowl. Add in the mayo and curry powder, and stir well.
- Thinly slice the entire stalk of green onion. The white bottom part of the onion can be further minced and then stirred into the "egg" salad mixture. The sliced green part of the onion can be reserved for garnish.
- For the garlic spinach, heat the oil in a large pan on medium-high. When hot, add the garlic and cook until golden, about 4 - 5 minutes.
- Then add all the spinach, soy sauce, and sambal. Cook for another minute, or until the spinach is wilted.
- Serve each component of the meal in bowls, alongside some avocado. Enjoy!
- Best if enjoyed immediately.
- The potatoes, egg salad, and garlic spinach can be stored separately in airtight containers in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Love it! 😋
I made this for my daughter and son-in-law last Sunday for brunch. They have a 7 month old. I copied your presentation you could see the fatigue lift from their faces. Yes it is not an everyday breakfast but that’s the idea sit around a breakfast table laugh and plan out the day looking at and smelling beautiful food. I made my son-in-law laugh when I added some whole grain toast stating it’s egg salad I have only eaten it as a sandwich. This sparked a conversation about celery, onion, pickles and caper. I do have to say I am not use to the creaminess of the egg salad except in a sandwich but the substitute of roasted potatoes was a pleasant surprise. The garlicky spinach were subtle but strong, I doubled the garlic. The surprise were the roasted tomatoes excellent paring with roasted potatoes but almost overpowering for the egg salad. I think you can tell how our morning went. I can’t wait to do it again when I harvest my new potatoes and when my sun gold cherry tomatoes are ripe. In other words take the time plan it out and see how many silly laughs you’ll have on your day of rest.
Made it for Sunday breakfast. Absolutely amazing! The potatoes were so crispy and flavorful and everything just tasted heavenly 😋 😍
This was delicious. Thank you. Would definitely make it again.
This is my favorite of all time ! I’m doing this recipe at least every two weeks
Loved this recipe!
Thanks once more Sadia. This is another Hit :)
To whoever is reading this and wondering if they should try this recipe or not…get the pan and start cooking! I eat this almost every other day. It is delicious. I have not add the tomatoes but I can only imagine how I’m y it must taste like. Give it a try!
I made this with some friends, and we all enjoyed our breakfast. It's worth the effort. You end up eating your tummy full with delicious well out together dish. Try it out!
I eat the Tofu from this recipe at least twice a week only substituting parts of the mayo with jogurt and i can not get enough of it together with fried mushrooms and fresh cucumber. Its hella delicious :D Thanks for sharing this
Tofu scramble is so delicious. I recently had a tofu scramble in canggu Bali at a cafe called ‘I am vegan babe’. It tasted like chicken noddle soup. I was so disappointed and I don’t think anyones tofu scramble will compare to Pick up limes’ recipe. It just blows it out of the park. I could eat this all day long and I’m not even vegan, or vegetarian. This meal does take a little longer to prep so I’d save if for when you have time.
Every part of this is amazing , all together it’s incredible . So good! Already planning the next time I’m going to make it!
OMG this bowl is absolutely amazing! I literally licked my bowl clean afterwards. We will definitely be making this one regularly!
Really good. I like this way to cook spinache, easy and tasty ! The "egg" is nice and saucy enough!
Made this for breakfast and the flavors are perfect! Used a kale/cabbage/Brussels sprouts blend instead of spinach and it turned out wonderfully, this is going to be a staple in our home!
This looks delicious I'd love to make this to encourage us to start eating breakfast, however I really hate mayo so is there anything I could substitute it with? :D
Delicious! I really like this recipe! :)
My sister showed it to me and I have made it several times ever since.
Tasty, versatile and comforting!
I’ve made this several times now and just love it! It’s beautiful on the plate and tastes amazing, i love a drizzle of balsamic glaze over the greens and tomatoes. So grateful for this resource and the lovely way the recipes are presented with mouth watering pictures-I’m a huge fan of the PUL YouTube channel too!
This looks so good! I don't have any tofu at home right now, but definitely making this next time I go to the shops!
For the website I would really like to see some kind of meal plan of what you eat a week. You always make really big portions, so I assume you have a lot of leftovers. I only cook for myself so I would love to see what you do with leftovers and what you eat over a week.
Really looking forward to follow pick up limes and see where you go 😊
The vegan "egg" salad is mind-blowing! I'm utterly in love with this recipe. It goes extraordinarily well with the potatoes and tomatoes, which were sitting in my fridge for a couple of days, so I'm verily thankful I got to use them. I was in a rush, so I skipped the garlic spinach, but I will surely make the entire recipe next time. I haven't been this excited about eating something in a while! Thank you so so much, guys! You are wonderful!
After a long day at work,I am a nurse. I made this recipe. It is so delicious .so scrumptious!
Thank you both.
This is my moms favorite breakfast, now I make it every time for her birthday breakfast! It’s super filling but it in the best way possible.
YUM! I made this as a breakfast for myself a few weeks ago and I loved it. Last night I realized that I'm in need of a grocery trip, but I had the ingredients for this recipe, though I only had sweet potatoes instead of white. I made this for myself and my boyfriend for dinner- it was beautiful, nutritious and really delicious! This is equally tasty using white or sweet potatoes. Very highly recommend!
I tried it yesterday, and ... SO GOOD! I loved the different colors, flavors, etc and knowing it’s a healthy lunch as un upgrade touch. In short, a great success to reproduce. But this time I would start by cooking spinach to eat salad as it was hot ;)
Maybe it isn’t a good idea to crown a winner of savoury breakfast recipes when I haven’t tried PUL’s burritos😅…
Nevertheless, this is so far my favourite savoury breakfast!!! Egg salads aren’t a thing here in Sweden: I would say non-existent, but second opinions are required👩🏻⚖️. But oh my Robin’s salad is awesome!!! I love how you’ve complemented it with so good textures and flavours: rustic and crunchy potatoes, sweet tomatoes, and umami packed spinach. I was definitely full and happy afterwards🤣
I made this yesterday and it’s soooo good! I struggle with breakfasts being boring, but I know I need to eat before going to work. This bowl was so visually pleasing and delicious! I have leftovers for this rainy Sunday morning!!
This vegan egg is absolutely fantastic! I eat it with potatoes, on bread or crackers or add it into a green or mixed salad. It is so flavourful and a great substitution for chicken eggs.
I really loved this recipe! My favorite parts were the rosemary and paprika on the potatoes and the amazing tomatoes, the soy sauce and garlic with the spinach (so creative), and I subbed chickpeas for tofu in the egg salad and it is amazing! So simple and easy :)
LOVE THIS!!! I loved egg salad before becoming vegan, I just thought I'd never find a good substitute for it.....now I have! This to me is even better than my favorite non-vegan version I use to make. Thank you so much for this!!
Love everything about this!! 💚 The egg salad blew my mind, and the garlic spinach in particular was delicious. I used mashed chickpeas for the egg salad instead of tofu because I was out, and it still tasted incredible! Took awhile to make but fully worth it. Lots of love and thank you PUL team!
This is delicious!! I've never been a huge fan of tofu scrambles, but this recipe is definitely making me change my mind! Love it!
Every part of this bowl is delicious. I especially love the garlic spinach.
You were the first one who introduced me to "tofu scramble". My hopes weren't high, since usually eggs & dairy products substitutes are not so good. I was so surprised by the final texture and taste! It was soooooo good. Next time I will be making it, I will use black salt instead of regular one. That should enhance the egg taste. :-)
LOVE this "egg salad"! It is easy to make, it is ready to enjoy in a jiffy and keeps really well for a couple of days.
I've made the full bowl - it's all so delicious! The potatoes are especially PERFECT! Best seasoning blend for potatoes. Highly recommend it all!
I only made the "egg" salad part of this and even though I'm normally not a big fan of egg salad (I can't even remember the last and maybe only time I've tried egg salad), both my fiance and I were pleasantly surprised!
Side note: going through your website to leave reviews has made me realize how much I've enjoyed and relied on your recipes to help with our plant-based journey. Without you, I'd be poking my fork at some sad salads and slightly regretting my plant-based journey. Not anymore!
I made this for my lunches last week, and I really loved the vegan "egg" salad! I would have never thought to whip it up that way. It was absolutely delicious!
Oh my goodness! I made this for breakfast and it was one of the best savory breakfasts I have ate since going vegan! Every taste bud is pleased! The egg salad is a new favourite as well and I am sure would convert a non-vegan. If you are looking for a sign to try, this is it!! Thank you for your incredibly beautiful tasting meals you create! Love from Canada <3
One of the most amazing breakfasts (although I ate it as a dinner because preparing it is more time consuming). The only thing I'd change would be to reduce or replace the mayo with more wholesome ingredients (I find the store brought vegan mayo completely disappointing).
One of the best breakfast dishes I ever had! Thank you so much for this recipe!
Just made the egg salad and it was easy and delicious. I'm chilling it in the fridge to use in sandwiches for lunch this week. Used firm tofu because that's what we had and the texture was good.
