Egg replacer made from flax
- For each large egg, blend 1 tablespoon (1/4 ounce) finely ground flax meal with 3 tablespoons cold water. Let rest for 10 minutes to thicken.
Egg replacer made from starches
- For each large egg, whisk together the following:
- 1 1/2 teaspoons tapioca starch
- 1 1/2 teaspoons potato starch
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/8 teaspoon (a big pinch) xanthan gum
- 3 tablespoons water
- Let rest for 10 minutes until the mixture starts to thicken, then whisk until it appears lighter; the mixture will increase in volume a bit. The idea is to trap air bubbles to help with leavening, the same way eggs do.
