Eggless egg substitutes

It's no big secret that a dozen eggs in the supermarket nowadays will cost you a fortune. But I'm not buying into that and I refuse to pay more than a couple of bucks for something that shoots straight out of a chicken's rear end. So, today, I want to share some tips on various ingredients that I use for egg substitutes. Because maybe y'alls pocket book needs some relief too.

Below is a list of various items that work awesome as an egg substitute.

  • ¼ cup of canola oil = 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of carbonated water = 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of plain yogurt = 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of buttermilk = 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of sour cream = 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of plain creamed potatoes = 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of peanut butter = 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons of almond butter = 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of unsweetened applesauce = 1 egg (The best egg substitute that can be used in any recipe for an egg substitute.)
  • ¼ cup of mashed banana = 1 egg
  • ¼ cup of mashed mango
  • ¼ cup of mashed avocado = 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda mixed with 1 tablespoon of vinegar = 1 egg

These ingredients can be substituted in almost everything that requires an egg. They make your recipes taste almost exactly like you used an egg, but the two best substitutes for an egg are: unsweetened applesauce and baking soda mixed with vinegar.

Unfortunately, you can't use any of these items to make sunny-side-up eggs, hard-boiled eggs, omelets, or spinach and eggs. If I ever figure that one out, I will be sure to share it!

She is an animal rescuer, food critic, organic gardener, food editor, home cook, food blogger, artist, and a complete do-it-yourselfer. Gin Lee is a published author, journalist, and contributor, among other works, and she resides in a rural town, in Arkansas, with her husband, their fur babies, Highway, Princess, Stinkpot the turtle. A huge thanks goes out to all for reading, following, and sharing Gin Lee's articles! Thank you! Since Gin Lee lives in a rural area, there's not much local news to cover. So, she covers articles of interest on how-to's about organic gardening, recipes, homesteading, and survival techniques. If those things are of interest to you, then you'll never (hopefully) be disappointed. She tries to cover a wide variety of articles to entertain everyone. Comments are turned off due to rudeness and hatefulness. The world has enough vulgarity, hatefulness, and arrogance without it having any help. Since having the simple courtesy of manners is lacking and sharing words of kindness does not abide in a few people. Those few people ruin what's supposed to be educational and an enjoyable experience for all others. Gin Lee does have children and young adults that are followers. Potty mouths, vulgarity, and hate are not acceptable. Apologies go out to those of you who generally are very sweet and also to Gin Lee's followers who have been a witness to others being rude and malicious. Hopefully, you'll be understanding of the measures that have to be put into place. Please be kind to one another.
