I want to make a BB for cooking that is "frying an egg in a cast iron skillet without it sticking."  I wrote to fred and said "would would be the vegan equivalent?" and he said "pancakes".

I feel like getting pancakes to not stick is pretty easy.  Getting an egg to not stick take a bit more ... care.

Any other suggestions?

Mine do too. On the plus side, it makes for those delicious crispy bits that I get to steal cause I cooked them!😀

Interesting that you want 2 options. Seems eggs is a pep, a vegan alternative would be pex.  That has been your pattern for geography and equipment selection.

My first thought was French toast because of the egg in it. Lol. Doh! Hash browns or home fries could work.

Egg lover with a vegan partner here.  I make a sunnyside up with thin sliced (1/4"-3/8")SILKEN tofu as the white.  It is delicate as all heck and breaks apart into pieces if I use the wrong pan.

Paul really wants the Sand Level PEPs to be vegan-accessible. From reading his book, he talks about how vegansim is almost just as good for the environment as a permaculture diet with a bit of meat. So, I think he really wants to make sure vegans who come to Wheaton Labs can get the PEP. It's a bit different than, say, people who don't want/can't use machinery, because machinery is at Wheaton Labs.

At least, that's my understanding.
