Vegan egg substitutes for making vegan omelettes, scrambled eggs, & more

Published by Finn Hayden

We've written many times about all of the excellent vegan versions of foods which you'd never expect to find, with everything from tasty vegan camembert to delicious vegan chocolate spread now readily available. But the one product which still amazes us that you can find great vegan versions of is eggs. Considering how unique the texture and taste of chickens eggs are, we were seriously skeptical when we read about vegan egg substitutes. But having now tried baking and scrambling many egg substitutes, we can happily report that you're spoilt for choice when it comes to vegan alternatives to eggs.

We thought it would be useful to round up the best vegan egg substitutes that we've found and tried, let's get into it:

Crackd

Made using pea protein, the Crackd vegan egg substitute is perfect for baking everything from cakes and cookies to Yorkshire puddings. Or if you like to do something a bit more simple with your eggs, you can make lovely scrambled eggs using Crackd. This is a liquid which comes in a ready to pour bottle, making it easy to get started with too. Because it's made using pea protein, this egg substitute also packs a good amount of protein just like real eggs (10g per bottle) and it's low in fat. We're really impressed with this product, learn more and buy it here - tesco.com

OGGS Aquafaba

Another excellent vegan liquid egg substitute is the OGGS Aquafaba product. Made using chickpeas, it's perfect for baking as it will hold together cakes and pancakes just like chicken eggs. Each 200ml bottle is equivalent to 4 eggs, and it contains 1.4g of protein per 100g. You can actually buy this egg substitute in much larger sizes (up to 10 litres!) which is ideal if you're planning on doing a lot of vegan baking. Learn more and buy it here - groceries.asda.com

Free and Easy egg replacer

This egg replacer from Free and Easy is actually quite hard to get your hands on as it often sells out, but that's because it's excellent for baking. Whether you're making cakes, cookies, pancakes, or even something trickier like meringues, this egg replacer will work. Made using a mix of Potato flour and Tapioca flour, it binds other ingredients well. You wouldn't use this product to make something like scrambled eggs, but for vegan baking it is perfect.

Orgran no egg replacer

This is a powder egg replacer, and each pack is equivalent to a whopping 66 eggs. You very easily use this for baking anything from vegan cakes to meringues, but you can also use it for some more interesting meals if you're feeling brave. For example, we've seen reviews from customers who have used it to make vegan mayonnaise. As well as being totally vegan, it's also gluten and nut free. Learn more and buy it here - tesco.com

Holland & Barrett Vegan egg replacer & mix

We wanted to include 2 options from Holland and Barrett because both the egg replacer and the egg mix from this brand are excellent. The egg replacer is recommended for quite a specific use which is for making meringues, whereas the egg mix is better suited for making things like omelettes and scrambled eggs. The egg mix is made using a blend of chickpea flour and pea protein, so it's packed with protein (17g per 100g), whereas the egg replacer is made using Potato Starch and Tapioca Starch which makes it much better suited to baking.
