Finding a suitable vegan egg alternative can be tricky, especially now there are so many different offerings out there. You can even make vegan eggs yourself, whether that is a chia egg, flaxseed egg, aquafaba, or even apple sauce. But sometimes convenience trumps all, so let’s focus on the vegan egg alternatives that can be easily bought from your supermarket.
I have found that every vegan egg alternative out there caters for a different variation or way of eating an egg. For instance, some may replace the egg whites well in a cake recipe, and others may just scramble well.
I am yet to find a vegan egg alternative that does everything. So read on to find a range of my favourite vegan egg alternatives with my suggested uses for each.
Here are the best vegan egg alternatives
Who needs eggs when you have these fantastic alternatives. All of these can be found in most major supermarkets. I’ve included links to buy them from Ocado – my favourite supermarket for vegan options. For any first time buyers, follow any of the links below to get 25% off your first order.
Orgran Vegan Easy Egg
The Orgran vegan egg alternative has been around for as long as I can remember. They use chickpea flour to creating a powder which binds really easily when mixed with liquid. I find this works perfectly as an omelette mix.
Clearspring Organic Silken Tofu
CRACKD No-Egg Egg
For years I have been struggling to master the art of vegan Yorkshire Pudding making. It is really difficult to get right. But thanks for CRACKD, it is definitely achievable. The best bit, they enrich their vegan egg mix with vitamin B12 & D.
A vegan egg is an alternative to the eggs produced by chickens. It can be made using many different natural ingredients, depending on the type of egg dish you want to replicate.
For instance, you can make a vegan scrambled egg using ackee, or a vegan quiche using silken tofu. If you are trying to replicate a dish that uses egg whites, like meringues, you can use aquafaba.
So, a vegan egg is either used to ‘bind’ ingredients together in recipes, or to actually mimic egg in a dish.
Chicken farming causes unnecessary suffering on chickens, and vegan egg alternatives are so good, so there really is no need to harm animals for tasty food!
