need help binding a vegan loaf

bellywizard | Oct 2, 2008 05:52 AM

Lots of threads here suggest egg substitutes - such as tapioca, potato flour, etc. My question is a bit more specific:

I'm making a vegan nut-loaf as part of a Thanksgiving meal. Last time I made this loaf, it didn't bind together well. (I used about 2 tbsp potato flour, plus about 2 tbsp ground flax simmered in water until goopy; also included about 3/4 cup bread crumbs).

What kind and what amount of egg substitutes would you recommend, to bind a loaf (approx 4x9")?

One caveat: Ener-G egg replacer has tapioca & potato starch as its main ingredients - so I'd rather just use those starches than buy a box of Ener-G that I'll never use again...
