How to Make a Flax Egg
A simple quick and easy egg replacement called flax eggs for all your vegan needs
Servings 1 serving
- 1 tablespoon of flaxseeds
- 3 tablespoon of hot water
Add your whole flaxseed to a spice/coffee grinder.
Mill the flax into a fine consistency.
Add the hot water to the flaxmeal and stir so it is combined evenly
Leave to rest for about 5 minutes (you can leave for longer if you wish) during this time the mixture should have turned gelatinous and that is your egg
- Hot water. While some people make their eggs" using cold/warm water I highly recommend using HOT water. This congeals a lot quicker and virtually eliminates any waiting time.
- Only make the amount of flax eggs that you need at any give time.
- DO NOT quantify in bulk at all.
- DON'T go over 3 "eggs". Recipes that call for more than 3 vegan eggs need to be revised and adapted with using other ingredients. Keep your usage within a maximum of 3.
- For best results use for fairly simple recipes i.e cakes, muffins, pancakes etc.. pastries/quiches are a NO NO.
- It's okay to use brown or golden flaxseed, both work just fine.
- It's better and more nutritious to use whole flax and mill it using a coffee/spice grinder.
- Be sure to stir your "egg(s)" before using/adding to a recipe.
- DON'T use flax flour, only whole flax or flax meal as a secondary option.
