Being a free-from household we are always on the lookout for great egg-replacements. We have used bananas, stewed apples for years but a couple of years ago we discovered the wonder of flaxseed (a.k.a linseed) and chia seeds. They both have a wonderful congealing property, and both are really good for your body. You can use them whole, but in most of our recipes we grind the seeds in our spice grinder* to create the flax-*gg. I keep the glass spice-grinder jar in the fridge so it's always cold, to ensure the seeds don't heat up whilst they are being ground.
- 1 Tbs ground flaxseed
- 3 Tbs filtered water
Into a cup add the ground flaxseed and water, stir and leave to congeal for 12 - 15 minutes. It goes all gloopy like an egg, as you can see in the photo! Once it has that wonderful congealing consistency it's a flax-*gg, ready to use in your recipe in place of an egg.
