Egg Substitues

13 January, 2008

We have a nephew that is allergic to eggs and the store bought egg substitues.  This is what his mother uses. 

For scrambling and making omelets


tofu (This works best with crumbled firm or extra firm tofu. It helps to add lots of seasonings like onions, mushrooms, nutritional yeast or cheese, and herbs.) 


For baking

 gelatin To replace each egg: Dissolve 1 tablespoon unflavored gelatin in 1 tablespoon cold water, then add 2 tablespoons boiling water. Beat vigorously until frothy.)

cornstarch Substitute 1 tablespoon cornstarch plus 3 tablespoons water for each egg called for in recipe.


bananas Substitute 1/2 of a mashed ripe banana plus 1/4 teaspoon baking powder for each egg.
