Try this combo- vegan mayo (or margarine), nooch, and a light sprinkle of black salt.

Thalassa I love VeganEgg, scrambled with FYH smoked gouda, but I have made tofu scramble in the past, and am thinking about investing in some kala namak...I'm leaving Los Angeles in August to go to a very green, veg-friendly smaller town up North....but it's still a smaller town...so I think it's best to get the Kala namak, from a local shop or online, because the magic ingredients in Vegan Egg are nutritional yeast and Kala namak...yes the algal protein gives it the "is this real life?" scrambled eggs texture, for your own amusement or fool your friends, but nooch, and stinky black salt, scrambled with tofu will be cheaper in the long term and easier to maintain.

You can get it from vegansupply.ca I would say it's worth it for making an omelette or something, but don't waste it on baking ^_^

I recently tried FYH Vegan Egg, and it's a pretty decent sub for scrambled eggs, but tofu is still better, IMO ^_^

silva Tofu scramble is much better than eggs IMO. I don't press it dry though- I like the creaminess of tofu
If you want the taste of eggs, get kala namak- black salt. You can find it in Indian stores, cheap, or online with shipping cost. It smells strongly of boiled eggs, and has a definite 'egg' taste. I didn't even care for eggs before, but this was so intriguing to me i now use it regularly. I esp like it on toast with margarine or vegan mayo with nooch

Here's a general chart for egg subs in baking-

For cakes, I use the baking soda/vinegar method. For pound type cakes, silken tofu

Sounds awesome. I was in Philadelphia a few weeks ago and I went to this place called the Green Eggs Cafe. Not a vegan place, but has a vegan option. http://greeneggscafe.com/menu-philly/ The Ultimate Tofu Scramble. I tried it and it was really cool. It basically includes eggs made out of tofu. The colour was exactly the same as eggs, it looked like scrambled eggs, and tasted very similar, and it was very good. I'm not sure how common this is but it was the first time I'd tried anything like this.

In the unlikely event that I become less lazy or get a lot of time on my hands, I would start making that at home for breakfast.

Ferncat I agree with the Tofu for a scramble. It can be wonderful depending on your amount of seasoning and the veggies you add to it.

For baking, I use 1/4 c unsweetened applesauce. I don't really bake all that much, mostly quick breads and it works well in those but not sure about it for other uses.

I have used flax egg in crepes for good results as well.

I am thinking that there may not be one good egg replacer that is all purpose but maybe a best one for different uses?

Knowtions In Motion For a scramble, I prefer using extra firm tofu, dried really well, and scrambled up with onions, red peppers, nutritional yeast, and some greens.

For baking things like muffins and cornbread or making pancakes, I use flax meal and water as a replacement. Using 1 tbsp flax meal and 3 tbsp water for each egg needing to be replaced.

I've not tried any store bought replacements.

Vegan Eggs

When looking for vegan egg recipes on the internet, I have found several. In fact, I have even found a couple products. However, I would like to know what you all think is the best vegan egg recipe so I do not have to taste test them all. Any recommendations on which recipe is best would be greatly appreciated.
