It looks all the world like scrambled eggs.

But in reality, it’s the new Hodo Vegan All-Day Egg Scramble.

It’s the newest product from the Oakland-based purveyor of artisan tofu.

The plant-based product is made with organic soybeans, with turmeric giving it the eggy color.

It boasts as much protein as a real chicken egg and no cholesterol.

I had a chance to try a sample recently. The ready-to-use scramble can be used as is or heated in a frying pan or microwave.

It’s fairly compacted in its pouch, but just use a fork to break it up more into soft, slightly fluffy curds.

A good source of protein and calcium.

It certainly looks like eggs. But the taste is definitely beany like soybeans. The turmeric, cumin, onion powder, and garlic powder give it a faint Indian curry-like character.

It’s delicious and handy to have in the fridge to whip up burritos, sandwiches, and fried rice on the fly.

An 8-ounce package (2.5 servings with 110 calories per serving) is $8.99 at Whole Foods, Target, and Walmart.

  • Interesting! Haven’t heard of this particular product. I’ve been playing a bit with some of the veggie “meat” products, and haven’t been all that impressed. They’re not bad, just not something I’d want to eat instead of meat (and I don’t eat all that much meat to begin with). Anyway, this looks interesting — have to check it out. Thanks!
