I was wondering if Ener-G Egg Replacer was good for scrambling & omelettes or is it only good for baking?

I assume only good for baking and cooking where egg is one of the ingredients...it's a powder you can use straight or mix with a small amount of water before adding to the other ingredients. Tofu makes EXCELLENT scrambled "eggs"...throw some veggies and crumbled fake bacon in there- yum!

Nope - ener-g is only good in baked goods, etc. It's a nasty slimy mess plain.



Fantastic Foods makes a very good tofu scrambler product. It's vegan and you mix it with a pound of drained crumbled tofu. My boys like it with ketchup!

Definately not for scrambling. As mentioned, it's just a powder. A mix of various starches, potato and corn I think. Mix with a bit of water and add to whatever as a thickener for sauces or binder in baking.

What ^^they all said...



(From experience, it doesn't even work for an egg-like coating...for eggplant, etc...and even in some baked products, if you use Ener-G, I'd recommend added water or soymilk to help with the consistency b/c the Ener-G "eggs" are a lot smaller [hence less moisture] than chicken eggs.)



Cheers!

Try a block of silken tofu (the aseptic pack) mixed with Nayonaise, spicy mustard, salt, pepper, and a little chili powder. Inside of a toasted pita it's great...it's sort of like egg salad, only sans eggs



(It's also good for lunch or snacks, too!)



Cheers!
