The majority of standard recipes seem to call for eggs, but are they needed?
Here are cooking and baking egg substitutes if you are practicing a plant-based diet, can’t eat eggs, or simply don’t like them. Eggs serve 3 basic functions in cooking and each of these functions has a workable plant-based replacement.
Egg function in most recipes is for: 1) binding; 2) leavening; and 3) moisture. Because of these different purposes there are different substitutes. Because there are multiple substitutes you have more flexibility in mixing, matching and creating your favorite recipe replacements based on function and flavor wanted.
Below is a list of Egg substitutes, best uses, and related recipes to try. Please share your results.
