Eggless...yet tasty!

Firm tofu and soft/silken tofu are some of the varieties of tofu which can be used instead of eggs.  Firm Tofu can be used to prepare scrambled eggs(tofu), frittata etc.  Soft/Silken Tofu is pureed to be used as an egg substitute in baking recipes.  It's best suited for rich, dense and moist cakes, breads, cookies and brownies.

For each egg to be replaced in a baking recipe/no bake dessert, measure 1/4 cup of silken tofu in a dry measuring cup and blend it into a smooth puree in a blender/food processor.  I have tried this in a couple of recipes and have had success with it.

Recently I also read another method of substitution in the book Vegan Planet which is, to blend together 1/4 cup drained soft tofu and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder to replace 1 egg in baking.  I have to try this out.

Check out for recipes using tofu as an egg substitute.

Paneer is made from cow's milk whereas tofu is made from soy milk.  Though both are similar in appearance the taste is totally different.

Now i know! with that said, it's easy to weigh my options to just choose tofu as it is much healthier for me.
