When starting as a vegan the first feeling is that we are going to have to give up lots of our loved dishes because it will be impossible to substitute some ingredients. One of them is eggs. Well, there are quite a few options that we can use in cakes or other dishes. Here listed are the ones I use the most.
1/4 cup of soya yoghurt = 1 egg
It gives good results in cakes, muffins and even bread. It is possible to choose yoghurt with and without sugar, sweeteners or fruit.
1 spoonful of chia seeds + 3 spoonfuls of water = 1 egg
Especially when crushed chia seeds become a great thickener. After crushing mix them well with water and let it stand for 5 minutes before adding it to the recipe. They give a good result in cakes, muffins, brownies and sweet bread.
1/4 cup of flour + 1/4 cup of water or any vegetable milk.
After trying different flours, trying to make gluten and egg free pancakes I discovered that chickpea flour is a great substitute for eggs which I now use especially to make Spanish or other varieties of omelettes.
