GF Vegan Mexican Style "Eggy" Bread

November 16, 2021
If you're familiar with my recipes here on PD, you might remember my gluten free vegan take on the traditional Hungarian eggy bread, bundás kenyér. The original recipe calls for eggs, milk and seasoning like salt and pepper, some versions add flour as well and make the coat more pancake-like.

This recipe was inspired by that recipe on a gloomy day when I really wanted to eat bundás kenyér, but I forgot that I didn't have all the ingredients so I decided to go with the flow and work with whatever I had. Topped with a little leftover of the Mexican salad from the day before, added some extra avocado to get my health fats as well and turned out this is super delicious!

Perfect breakfast/brunch or even as a lighter dinner, best to eat when fresh out of the pan to enjoy the warming flavors on these chilly November days.

As usual, I worked with my favorite egg replacer called "Eggy" which is a powder-based vegan option to replace eggs. I love it for its ease of use. To replace 1 egg you need to mix 1 tbs powder with 2 tbs water. I recommend to use something similar to make the "dough" smooth as possible.
