I got a really good vegetarian cookbook, but most of the recipes take eggs. I need to find a good substitution. I cant use ener-g I dont think, cause these are not baked goods.

It is for sauces, and creamy foods....

Does anyone have a good egg substitution?

how bout olive oil?

I think just oil would work in some sauces and such... but, yeah, it depends.

Here's a list I like to keep on hand, I just posted it somewhere else yesterday, so I'll go ahead and do it here too. Maybe something(maybe the flax one? idunno.) will work from it.

Egg Replacers

Any of the following can be substituted for an egg:

(1) one-half of a banana, mashed;

(2) two ounces of mashed potatoes;

(3) two ounces of nut butters;

(4) two ounces of mashed beans;

(5) one-fourth cup of applesauce;

(6) one-fourth cup of pureed fruit;

(7) two ounces of soft tofu blended with some water;

(8) one teaspoon of soy flour mixed with one tablespoon of water;

(9) one tablespoon of flax seeds blended well with three tablespoons of water.

(This mixture can also be boiled until it develops the desired consistency).

Flax seeds should be stored in the freezer, as they can become rancid at room temperature or in the refrigerator.

Different egg replacers work well for different recipes. You need to experiment a bit.

I use ener-g in just about everything--I've made omelettes using that and tofu lately even. When I use ener-g my baking always turns out fantastic and just about the only thing I can think of that it didn't work in was subbing for a "regular" brownie recipe--big crunchy bubbly goopy flat mess.
