Egg Replacement Event – Silken Tofu – Round Up

Silken Tofu EventWhen I announced the Egg Replacement Event – Silken Tofu, I was not sure how the response would be. Now after receiving 12 entries and a lot more feedback I’m very glad that I’m conducting this silken tofu event. Seeing so many entries from other food bloggers also motivated me to try more recipes using silken tofu. In the course of the journey I did stumble a lot, but at the end it’s all worth it. Our blogger friends have whipped up so many dishes using tofu. Frittatas, quiche, cakes and cookies. What’s more amazing is, for most of them it’s the first time they are using silken tofu. Thank you very much friends for taking the time and interest in trying something new. I really appreciate your efforts.

This page specifically describes how to use silken tofu as an egg substitute in various baking recipes. Check out other possible egg substitute ingredients, quantity, and best suitable baking recipes here.

    Hi Becky, I saw a couple of vegan ice cream recipes in a regular ice cream book. I don’t remember the name though. I saw few recipes in the book Vegan Planet too, but have not tried it myself. I think they had used coconut milk and soy milk.
