I recently bought a Popeil pasta maker from a thrift store. I didn't realize that you are supposed to use eggs to make your pasta in this pasta maker. The little measuring cup that comes with it has a line on it telling you how far to fill up the egg, water, and oil up to. On the instructional video they also used eggs for all the pasta they made. Do any of you have one of these and can you use EnerG egg replacer in this? I thought this was going to be so cool getting a pasta maker but I guess it will be a waste of 10 bucks if you can't use anything but eggs in it.

Don't use EnerG. Use soft silken tofu instead! Works pretty well. So does just adding a bit of water.

How much water or tofu should I use to replace one egg?

1/4 cup whipped tofu = one egg



Here's a link to other egg replacers. http://www.veganmania.com/pages/egg_substitutes.htm

Sorry - yep, use 1/4 c per egg. The two egg replacers that probably won't work are energ and banana (unless you want banana pasta, ha ha). Good luck!! I hope you like your pasta maker - they can be pretty fun.

Thanks, people. I think I'm gonna try to make some pasta tomorrow. I don't have any tofu so I think I'm gonna use the flax seed egg replacer. I hope it turns out.

I think flaxseed is highly unlikely to work in a recipe like that, but go ahead and experiment. I have a vegan pasta recipe in Bryanna Grogan's cookbook if you'd like me to post it.

I was just wondering if anyone with the Popeil pasta maker could give me some tips. I have tried several different shapes and the only ones I can get to turn out decent are the strand pastas (spaghetti, fettucini, etc). The macaroni is ok but takes forever. I couldnt even get the penne to turn out right. It wanted to curl up instead of being straight like penne is supposed to be.

Hi TT, I used to use a mixer with a pasta attachment, to make vegan pasta and was somewhat satisfied, but have since gotten a large (pro) pasta extruder and use soy, vit. wheat gluten and white flour & get a good result. I empathize with your experience, with most pasta makers..req. eggs. My recipe would disable most machines. (I ruined 2 Kitchenaids , LOL) Best, ak
