Re: Recipes without eggs- please

http://www.thecookinginn.com/eggsub.html

I didn't follow all the links posted so far - so not sure if this has been mentioned already but I had to bake for a vegan friend and made a fantastic carrot cake using flaxseed egg substitue. It was light and delicious - and the girls ate it all - nothing left over for when the hubby came home. I used 2 gadgets to make it. First I used an electric coffee grinder to finely mill the flaxseed into a powder. then I used my mini food processer to whip the flaxseed powder with the water. I was like stiff egg whites!!! I think it is possible to buy milled flax seed but I wanted to make it really fine. I haven't tried any of the others on the list since the flaxseed works so well and they are good for you too!!

Wow - thank you so much to all. No time to try them at the mo- but will do them all when I get back from our family trip to France.
PaddyG - spot on too, he just loves bacon sarnies.

Re: Recipes without eggs- please

How does he go with maionaisse?
The egg free cheats recipe, in a large glass jar (circa 750ml) add
1 can or tube (blue tube from Coop or Volg)of condensed milk
Add an equal portion of vinegar (I use apple with herbs)
1 teaspoon each of mild curry powder and mustard powder (adjust to your taste I use a bit more)
A bit of salt and pepper
Hit it with the bamix and slowly add olive oil until the mixture won't "absorb" any more oil, normally this is about the same quantity in volume as the first two ingredients. Great for potatoe salad or coleslaw but I also use it as a butter substitute on sandwiches. It keeps in the fridge for ages but will settle a bit, just give it a shake and it is good to go.

I make rice krispie squares at birthday parties (sometimes drizzle chocolate on top). Or coco krispie squares. Sooooo easy and kids love them.

Re: Recipes without eggs- please

Brace yourself. This recipe is a bit...mental. But it fools people.

Avocado & Date Chocolate Mousse

220g medjol dates soaked in 200ml cold water, overnight

8 T maple syrup

4 T agave nectar syrup

2 vanilla pods or 2 t vanilla extract

6 ripe avocados

150g cocoa
Fresh raspberries or bananas sliced on the diagonal or fresh mango

Directions:
1 Blitz everything in a blender, but hold off on adding all the 'date soaking water'
2 As avocados vary in flesh amount, decide whether to pour in more 'date soaking water' to loosen
3 Rub the mousse through a sieve (it refines it)
4 Taste the mousse and decide whether you want more sweetener or cocoa
5 Spoon into a piping bag and pipe into glass tumblers
6 Serve with fresh fruit

Re: Recipes without eggs- please

I know these aren't 'tested' recipes, but as I was looking for new gluten-free recipes today, I came across the BBC Good Food Egg Free Recipes. Some of these look really good!

Re: Recipes without eggs- please

I looooove The Post Punk Kitchen!!! I found out at 35 that I have egg and dairy issues (among others) so I was well aware of the yummy goodness that I was missing. This cake http://www.theppk.com/2008/08/just-chocolate-cake/ is delightful and egg/dairy free. Just use rice milk (or I have even heard of others using apple juice) and swap the almond milk. I believe I used extra vanilla extract (I brought back from the US).

I keep a laptop near me when I am planning a recipe and am able to google replacements. If a recipe calls for 1/2 cup milk type in "1/2 cup milk substitution" and you'll get other options that work. (I do this with things like 2 table spoons of ground flax, which if you can get is great for replacing egg). I also will look up the options I have been given to see if they are useful in baking. Different substitutions are better with different kinds of cooking/baking

Good Luck!
