How can you make an egg substitute look like eggs, have the same consistency as eggs, and cook up just like eggs?
Since I’m a fan of the Golden Girls, I’m going to let my inner Sophia tell the story…
Picture it, Stop & Shop 2014…a woman in her 30’s desperately searches the aisles for an egg substitute. Box after box, she reads labels, and tosses each one aside. Soy in this one, corn in that one! None are safe for her! What is she to do? Go home and cry? (She’s done that too many times before.) Filled with fire and determination, she heads to the internet and starts researching….and cooking…
And She Breaks the Recipe!
Thanks for indulging in a GG moment. My inner Sophia tells the stories and My inner Rose does the cooking…How else could I make dairy free cheese?
So what’s in the Just Like Eggs if there’s no eggs?
Chickpea flour, coconut milk, xanthan gum, cream of tartar, baking soda, salt. That’s it. Can you believe it?
Enough With the Words, Let’s Break A Recipe!
