Have some Just Egg you don’t know what to do with? Here are 31 creative and delicious Just Egg recipes & ideas! All of the following recipes are vegan-friendly and plant-based.
what is Just Egg?
If you’ve never used Just Egg, let me introduce you to it. Just Egg is a completely plant-based substitute for eggs that tastes like the real thing.
What makes this egg replacement so different from other vegan egg replacers is that it can actually be eaten on its own. (Versus just being used as an egg replacer in baking like flax seeds or chia seeds).
Just Egg replicates the taste and texture of real eggs. The color also replicates what you’d get if you were to whisk up or scramble a chicken egg.
I wish this was sponsored but alas, I just love this product and have been using it for years.
Other vegan egg substitutes I’ve used in the past that come close to Just Egg are tofu scrambles. Soft tofu mixed with a little black salt (kala namak) creates an eggy taste. And if you add in some turmeric for a golden color, it looks similar to storebought Just Egg.
Just Egg Products
The company JUST has a few different egg substitute products.
The company’s main product is their bottled Just Egg which replicates liquid eggs.
They also sell precooked folded ‘eggs’ which can be found in the freezer section of your grocery store. You can actually pop these in the toaster or microwave to quickly cook them and add them to sandwiches.
Just Egg Ingredients
The main ingredients in Just Egg are mung beans and turmeric.
Yellow split mung beans are a popular ingredient in Southeast Asian cuisines. They’re found in dishes from daal to curries. They’re also a great source of protein, hence why they make a great main ingredient for Just Egg.
The turmeric creates a beautiful golden color similar to whisked chicken eggs.
The full ingredients are below:
Water, Mung Bean Protein Isolate, Expeller-Pressed Canola Oil, Contains less than 2% of Dehydrated Onion, Gellan Gum, Natural Carrot Extractives (color), Natural Flavors, Natural Turmeric Extractives (color), Potassium Citrate, Salt, Soy Lecithin, Sugar, Tapioca Syrup, Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate, Transglutaminase, Nisin (preservative). (Contains soy.)
How to use just egg
Just egg FAQ
Just Egg can be used in a variety of baking applications. It mimics the properties of a whisked chicken egg (yolk plus egg white), so it won’t work well in applications that call for only egg whites. In past experience, Just Egg is a great vegan egg replacer in dough-based baked goods like breads, doughnuts, and cakes.
3-4 tablespoons of Just Egg = 1 whisked chicken egg
The price of Just Egg will vary based on location. At my local grocery stores, it will range from $3.99 to $4.99 per bottle.
How Long does Just Egg last?
Once opened, from my experience, Just Egg lasts in the fridge for about 5-6 days.
Can Just Egg be Frozen?
Yes, Just Egg can be frozen prior to cooking and after cooking. The liquid Just Egg will separate a bit after thawing, so keep in mind the texture may not be the same.
Where can I buy Just Egg?
Just Egg can be found in most grocery stores and stores like Target, Walmart, or Trader Joe’s. Specialty grocery stores like Whole Foods should also carry it.
