Egg Replacers

Eggs play a large part in a non-vegan diet so here are a few ideas for replacements:

There are several egg replacers on the market that can be used in baking and cooking but you can also try some plant-based substitutions such as mashed bananas or flax seeds (see below).

Try out a few to see what works best for your recipe. In place of eggs to bind food together, try rolled oats, breadcrumbs, nut butters or corn starch. Again, it’s a case of experimenting to see what works best.

A great substitute for scrambled eggs is tofu scramble and you can make omelets with chickpea flour. The liquid from a tin of chick peas (called aquafaba) is a good stand-in for egg white. We have lots of egg free dishes in our Recipe section.
