Top 3 Replacements for Eggs


Eggs are tough to crack.

Not literally, of course. Eggs are actually, like really easy to crack. What we mean is that replacing eggs in your diet could be a toughie.

Why? Because eggs go in soooo, so many of the things we all love to eat. From cookies to quiche, mayo to moussaka eggs play a big role but they can be replaced.


1

Flax or Chia Seeds

Two for one! These workhorse seeds mimic the binding qualities of eggs.

Replacing 1 egg is as easy as combining 1 tablespoon of the good stuff with 3 tablespoons of water and letting it sit for a few minutes.

Aquafaba

You know that viscous, gooey liquid in cans of chickpeas and other legumes?

That’s aquafaba, meaning “bean water” in Latin, and it makes a perfect replacement for egg whites. You need to make a meringue, aquafaba is your sweetheart.

Tofu

What can’t tofu do? Honestly, this chameleon seems to pop everywhere and makes a great great egg substitute.

Looking for something to scramble up in the morning? Silken tofu and your favorite spices it is. Great in brownies and breads too. If quiche is more your speed, firm tofu works a treat.
Bonus: tofu is packed with protein.
