One thing I liked to do in my pre-gan days was to make a fried rice dish from leftovers and pull it all together with a fried egg. Is there a way to do this with tofu? Could I make a vegan omelette batter and drizzle that in to mimic the scrambled egg bits?

I can't think of any reason why this wouldn't work. When I've made fried rice I just scramble some tofu into it and it was pretty good.

I usually used tofu marinated with a teryaki style marinade, it make for me a good and healthy substitute to egg.

I would use silken tofu and fry it up in the pan, no cutting, no preparing, just throw a chunk in there and mush it. But I am lazy. And busy. And don't want to clean a blender.

I think that bitts of yuba make a nice egg sub in soup and would probably be like bits of scrambled egg in fried rice. But they won't have a binding effect if that is what you are looking for, and I'm not sure you'll be able to get yuba where you are living.

I've used soft tofu with a pinch of turmeric as 'egg' in fried noodle dishes before.

If you want to bring it more together you could puree the tofu
or mix chickpea flour and water to not-too-runny pancake dough and pour that in (<- my go-to-omelette-formula)

Yep! We can get yuba here. Lots of awesome Asian markets, thank goodness, or else I'd be lost here. I am looking for that binding effect, but I usually neglect yuba and am always looking for new ways to use it. I still have a sheet in the pantry.

we usually grate some extra firm tofu with our larger grate. then fry up the tofu separate with white pepper, sea salt (if you have black salt that might be even more awesome), tamari, and earth balance. then we add it to our fried rice. it works pretty well & the grating of the tofu kinda mocks the texture of scrambled eggs. (picture of how it looked when we made some last mofo.)

I don't know if you can find this where you are, but I use sliced packaged fried tofu. It looks like this:

That's what I do for omelettes and fried-rice. I love it and recommend it!
