Vegan Egg Alternatives

Thursday, May 23, 2013

Inspired by
in my quest to perhaps become fully vegan I came across some quick alternatives for Egg.

For the Light & Fluffy effect use these to replace 1 egg:

1. Baking Soda & Warm water, 2 TBSP each.
2. Baking Powder & Vinegar, 1 tsp each
3. Baker's yeast 1 tsp dissolved in 1/4 Cup warm water
4. Ground Flaxseed 1 TBSP with 3 TBSP water

For the Dense & Thick Binding effect to replace 1 egg:

1. Cornstarch & Water, 2 TBSP each
2. Instant mashed potato, 2 TBSP

These are the ones I'd most like have on hand & use. I'm sure there are others, do share if you have them please!

    Thank you MEOWMEOWGIRL for your contribution about vegan buttermilk.. emoticon and MISHAMW I am very interested to know why you (or any other ex-vegans) are no longer vegan.. what changed your mind? Also, if you are NOT vegan, what prevents you from choosing to be vegan?

For me, cheese & butter.. eggs, cottage cheese..yogurt... emoticon

    Though I am not longer vegan, Enger-g made an egg replacement for baking that is basically a little bit baking powder, baking soda, and cornstarch that you mixed in warm water.

Applesauce is good for binding in thick dishes too.

But remember if you are converting a favorite recipe to vegan, you need to add a little bit of fat to replace the egg as well. Coconut oil works well!
