Replacing egg as a binder?
I am cooking for vegetarians who do not eat eggs. One thing I'd like to make is a zucchini and carrot fritter- julienned strips help together with egg and cornstarch. Is there a way to bind these without the egg?
ok, you're gonna think i'm crazy, but here's a vegan baking substitute for eggs that might actually work...
Vegan Egg Replacer
[makes equivalent of 16 eggs - 3 Tbsp = 1 egg]
¾ cup ground flax
2¼ cups water
bring water to a boil, add ground flaxseed, and let stand for 10 minutes. when it cools, it should be the consistency of egg whites or a lightly beaten egg. refrigerate in a tightly closed container for up to one week.
if you only need a small amount, for each egg being replaced, combine 1 tablespoon ground flax with 2 tablespoons boiling water.
