Can a powdered egg substitute be used in place of eggs?
Namaste Foods products are formulated to be used with eggs. However, we have many customers who use a powdered egg substitute with success though some amount of experimenting may be necessary.
Our customers have found that, in general, adding the dry egg replacer directly to the dry mix without reconstituting, then following the package instructions works best. Some have also reported good results when increasing the amount of powdered egg replacer called for on package directions.
1 TBLS flax seeds plus 3 TBLS water replaces one egg. Finely grind 1 TBLS whole flaxseeds in a blender or coffee grinder, or use 2 1/2 TBLS pre-ground flaxseeds. Transfer to a bowl and beat in 3 TBLS water using a whisk or fork. It will become very gooey and gelatinous, much like an egg white.
Egg Substitute using Small Planet Organic Tofu
Attention: Tofu contains soy!!
Replace each egg with 1/4 Lb of Small Planet Organic Fresh Original Firm Tofu. Combine tofu, crumbled into a food processor, with the oil and water called for in the recipe, and puree in food processor until smooth, then add to mix.
Other suggestions from a customer:
For each egg, substitute one of the following in your recipe.
1 tsp baking powder + 1 TB water + 1 TB vinegar
1 tsp yeast dissolved in 1/4 cup warm water
1 TBLS apricot, prune or apple puree
1 1/2 TBLS water + 1 1/2 TBLE oil + 1 tsp baking powder
1 packet gelatin + 2 TBLS warm water (don't mix until ready to use)
