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.<br><br><br><br>
It is for sauces, and creamy foods....<br><br><br><br>
Does anyone have a good egg substitution?<br><br><br><br>
how bout olive oil?

it really depends on the recipes. you wanna throw them out here to see if we can determine what the best egg replacer would be for them?<br><br><br><br>
i have a little section at <a href="http://www.veganmania.com" target="_blank">www.veganmania.com</a> that talks about substituting for eggs, if you want to read it.

thanks kreeli, I think I may try silken tofu for most of the replacing. Give it that creamy texture.

I think just oil would work in some sauces and such... but, yeah, it depends.<br><br>
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.<br><br>
Egg Replacers<br><br>
Any of the following can be substituted for an egg:<br><br>
(1) one-half of a banana, mashed;<br><br>
(2) two ounces of mashed potatoes;<br><br>
(3) two ounces of nut butters;<br><br>
(4) two ounces of mashed beans;<br><br>
(5) one-fourth cup of applesauce;<br><br>
(6) one-fourth cup of pureed fruit;<br><br>
(7) two ounces of soft tofu blended with some water;<br><br>
(8) one teaspoon of soy flour mixed with one tablespoon of water;<br><br>
(9) one tablespoon of flax seeds blended well with three tablespoons of water.<br><br>
(This mixture can also be boiled until it develops the desired consistency).<br><br>
Flax seeds should be stored in the freezer, as they can become rancid at room temperature or in the refrigerator.<br><br>
Different egg replacers work well for different recipes. You need to experiment a bit.

Does anyone use the Ener-G Egg Replacer? I use it in my cornbread, and it turns out just fine. (I'm told my cornbread is excellent, btw. Better that Soul V.)

I use the Ener-G egg replacer in lots of recipes.<br><br>
Cookies, cakes, burgers, etc.<br><br>
Here is a clone recipe for Ener-g and it is insanely cheap and easy to make.<br><br><a href="http://www.vegsource.com/mcdougall/messages/13228.html" target="_blank">http://www.vegsource.com/mcdougall/messages/13228.html</a><br><br>
All of the ingredients are as close and as cheap as your local Asian Grocer.<br><br>

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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":("><br><br><br><br>
