This week I’m not really comparing an item, but telling you of a new item: Follow Your Heart’s VeganEgg. I know, eggs are not dairy, however, for anyone who has an egg allergy (I can’t have yolks) or chooses not to consume eggs for any other reason, this would be a substitute for them. Due to my allergies, I knew I had to try it & share.
It was the easiest process…
“egg” + cold water. That’s it.
I tried this as “scrambled eggs” and I used it in two recipes ([upcoming] corn dogs & [future] french toast).
It does take a bit longer to cook that eggs, but not that much longer. The package recommends 6-8 minutes, but I prefer dry eggs so I cooked mine about 10 minutes.
This statement is in no way a reflection on VeganEgg; it is purely my personal issue…I couldn’t eat as scrambled due to the texture. Not that it wasn’t good, but it reminded me of pudding & I can’t eat pudding; I wasn’t able to eat more than a bite. However:
In the corndog recipe it was fine – easy to use, blended well into the other ingredients. If I hadn’t known it was used in the batter, I would not have been able to tell the difference.
With the french toast, I did combine it with egg whites (which I can eat) since it was slightly thicker than I was looking for to dip the bread in. Again, if I had not known it was used in the batter, I would not have been able to tell the difference.
I’m looking forward to using this product again ~ I’m hoping to try it in a cake or bread soon. I’ll update my post when I do to share how it turned out.
