In times of egg shortages, there are a variety of egg substitutes to add to your meal and utilize in recipes. These include tofu, banana, applesauce, flaxseed, chia seeds, aquafaba, and the bottled JUST Egg.
On that note, egg alternatives are becoming increasingly popular as people look for ways to reduce their consumption of animal products. Some are fortified with plant-based proteins, making them a great source of protein for vegans and vegetarians.
Also, egg substitutes can be used in various ways to help reduce the number of eggs needed in a recipe.
Listed below are a few places you can find Tofu and JUST Egg on the menu.
