Mung Dal Scramble Vegan Scramble

Mung Dal Scramble

Protein-rich vegan scramble for a delicious breakfast/brunch.

The color, texture, and pungent/eggy smell (thanks, black salt) makes it a real deal.

The smell seemed to fade away when I added the salt early. So make sure you add it at the end of the cooking process.

I paired it up with some sautéed beans and cherry tomatoes. If you like, you can even serve it alongside ketchup.

Let’s go!

  • Rinse the yellow mung until the water runs clear. Transfer to a bowl and soak in hot water for 30 minutes.
  • *After 30 minutes* Drain and transfer the mung to a blender. Add salt + pepper + garlic + nutritional yeast + turmeric powder + water to the blender. Blend to a smooth 'batter'.
  • Set a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add oil. Once it's hot, pour in the blended mixture. Stir and scrape the bottom using a silicon spatula.
  • Keep scraping and mixing until it puffs up and forms a dough.
  • Next, cover the pan and let it cook for 5 minutes.
  • *After 5 minutes* Uncover the pan and give everything a quick mix. Using a spatula, divide/cut the dough into smaller pieces (please see video for reference). As you cook, the pieces will start to separate and won't stick together.
  • Now add black salt + green onion and give it a good mix.
  • Serve alongside ketchup, and sauteed veggies (beans, Brussel sprouts, okras, cherry tomatoes).

    Seriously delicious, and easy, too. No one flavor predominates over another; it’s a delicious, subtle symphony of tastes. I personally added a little more black salt at the end, but as the recipe states, that’s up to you. I love that each serving has 20 g of protein and 8 g of fiber. I’ll be making this recipe again.

  2. Yellow mung dal needs to be soaked overnight, otherwise it can’t be processed digested well.
