An amazing plant-based, vegan-friendly, soy-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free Just Like Eggs Pumfu Scramble recipe that makes approximately 2 serving, taking about 2 minutes to prepare, with 10 minutes for cook time.
Do you remember when they claimed eggs were healthy for heart health? What’s really strange is that although some older studies back this up, science has changed! Studies now show that eggs are actually quite bad for you.
For instance, one study monitored over 23,000 people’s diets and found that those who consumed more eggs had 80 percent higher coronary artery calcium scores, a measure of heart disease risk, an increased risk of obesity and diabetes, and hypertension (1).
Another study found that those who ate more eggs had a 19 percent higher risk of cardiovascular problems. In this study, they said:
“Studies showed that among participants who developed diabetes during observation, consumption of one egg a day doubled their risk compared with less than one egg a week (2)."
So why does the American Heart Association have nearly 40 recipes on their “Healthy Recipe” tab with egg ingredients (3)?
Maybe it has something to do with Eggland’s Best being one of the American Heart Association’s proud national supporters, which means the American Heart Association is in their pockets (4).
Nonetheless, eggs used to be a favorite food of mine. I tried several store-bought alternatives when I went plant-based but wasn't a fan of the ingredients. I have made egg alternatives from chickpea flour and ming beans, but nothing tasted as delicious as a pumfu scramble.
So without further ado, I introduce my Pumfu Scramble recipe. I think it's safe to say you'll enjoy it as much as my family. Since I am allergic to soy and have adapted to a plant-based lifestyle (no meat or dairy), this recipe is vegan-friendly, plant-based, soy-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free.
