Step:

  1. FOR BAKING, per egg, use either: 2 tbsp water, 1 tbsp of oil and 2 tbsp of baking powder mixed together well (binds and leavens)

  2. Or 1 tsp baking soda (bicarbonate of soda), 1 tbsp white vinegar and 1 tbsp extra liquid (leavens)

  3. Or 1 tbsp ground flax and 3 tbsp liquid mixed til frothy and sat until gelatinous (binds and leavens)

  4. Or 1 medium banana, very ripe and mashed well, or 60mls / a 1/4 cup of any fruit or vegetable puree (this will impart flavour though) (binds)

  5. For desserts / set puddings:

  6. 1 tsp gelatin dissolved in 2 tbsp liquid

  7. For sauces (including custard):

  8. 2 tbsp cornflour / cornstarch

  9. Or 2 tbsp arrowroot powder

  10. Or 2 tbsp potato starch

  11. FOR BREAD: use 2 tbsp mashed potato per egg

  12. FOR CHEESECAKE: 60mls / 1/4 cup soya or coconut-based yogurt

  13. Or 1/4 cup blended silken tofu

  14. TO REPLACE EGG WHITE: Mix 1 tbsp agar powder with 1 tbsp water. Chill, then mix again before using

  15. Or use 2 - 3 tbsp of canned bean or chickpea water (aqua faba) per egg white (works well in baking too)

  16. BINDING BURGERS / MEATLOAF: per egg, use 1 tbsp oats mixed with 5 tbsp water

  17. Or 1 tbsp of arrowroot and 2 tbsp of water

  18. Or a cube of tofu and 2 tbsp of vegetable oil

  19. Or 6 ounces of margarine and 120mls / a half cup of cold water

  20. Or 2 tbsp mashed avocado or potato

  21. USAGE TIP: Pick the right replacer for the job! Eggs can work as binders, thickeners and leaveners. Make sure you know the role the egg plays in your recipe and substitute accordingly. Don't try to replace more than 3 eggs, the end result isn't great. As a general rule, ignore the first egg in the recipe and replace the rest (up to 2)

  22. CAKE TIP: Commercial egg replacers can be drying so if using Egg-beaters brand etc try adding a tsp of oil with a tsp vanilla extract

  23. COOKIE TIP : Cookies don't rely on eggs for lift so they can be easily left out. Just add an extra 2 tbsp of liquid to your recipe
