VEGG REVIEW:

Having been a vegan for the past 22 years, I have to admit that I can’t even remember what an actual “egg” tastes like.  That said, I was very excited to try recipes that I haven’t had for years.

When I first blended the Vegg powder with water, I was struck by how close it resembled an actual egg.  After being turned off by “eggs” for so many years, I had to actually overcome the smell and look to begin cooking with it.  After consulting with my non-vegan husband, he confirmed that the look and consistency was as close as possible to a “real” egg yolk.   It is easy to prepare (simply blend powder with 1L water in the blender).  The down side is that it is a large quantity that you then need to refrigerate or freeze (there is no easy way to blend a smaller portion).

 

I used the Vegg in two different recipes to get an idea of how it tastes and how easy it is to work with.

1)      Almond French toast: DELICIOUS!!!!!!

–          5 tsp Vegg

–          1 C vanilla soy or almond milk

–          3 Tbs flour

–          ¼ tsp salt

–          ½ tsp baking powder

–          ½ tsp almond extract

  • Thickly sliced French bread
  • Vegetable oil & vegan margarine for cooking
  • Wisk together Vegg, milk, flour, salt baking powder and almond extract.
  • Dip and soak bread in mixture
  • Place slices in a shallow dish and refergirate (if time)
  • Heat oil & margarine over medium heat and fry bread on both sides until browned
  • I topped with fresh berries and drizzled with maple syrup

 

2)      Home-made egg rolls:   The homemade egg roll wrappers were a bit of a challenge to make.  It’s a delicate process that will probably take a few more times to master!  They turned out tasty – but the wrappers were a little too thick which I think I will remedy with practice.

–          1 Tb Vegg

–          ¾ C cold water

–          ¼ tsp salt

–          7/8 C flour

–          Peanut oil for cooking

  • Wisk together everything but oil.
  • Heat nonstick pan to high heat, then lower to low once hot.
  • Add oil to pan
  • Scoop in ¼ C of four mixture – immeadietly spread out mixture to a thin layer – in under a minute the edges will begin to curl and the wapper is done
  • Place on paper towel to cool
  • Once cool – fill with filling and wrap.  (I used cabbage, carrots, scallions, bean sprouts and fresh ginger lightly sautéed with a dash of braggs/soy sauce)
  • You can then fry or bake eggrolls – I sprayed mine with oil and baked on 400 until browned

 

Overall, the Vegg is a fantastic addition to the Vegan kitchen.

 

 

The folks at Vegg were nice enough to send a free sample of their product for me to review.

  • Grace:

    You can make this is smaller portions. 1 tsp. Vegg and 1/4 cup of water, or 2 tsp. and 1/2 cup of water, 1 tbsp. Vegg and 3/4 cup of water. I use the 2 tsp and 1/2 cup of water for my French toast. You do not have to use the whole package.
