    There are vegan egg substitutes. I have seen them in powder form at health food stores. I can't vouch for the quality of them as I am an egg eater myself.

    I am not sure if I understand, but are you looking for a substitute for meat in your cooking? If so, Morningstar Farms (in the frozen section of supermarket) makes some great fake chicken, ground "beef" and the like that are vegetarian. I am a meat eater and even I liked them.

      the main reason for me to ask for an egg substitute is so i can make home made pasta...

        I've made homemade pasta without egg and it turns out great! Search the internet for "eggless homemade pasta"
