“What sorcery is this?” you may be thinking. No sorcery at all! You see, there is a powdered vegan egg substitute on the market which, on its own, is not beloved by all vegans (although some do love it on its own). However, when you mix it half and half with chickpea flour (besan) it somehow, magically (ok, so maybe there is some sorcery involved) becomes the closest thing ever to Just Egg without the Just Egg price, or, frankly, the Just Egg ingredients that you may not want.

The powdered egg substitute is called “Eco-Cuisine Egg-Style Mix”, and the reason it has that cumbersome name is that it was developed for food service. What’s really cool is that the person who developed it, professional chef Ron Pickarski, has basically made it his mission to educate schools and other institutions about how they can reduce meat and dairy consumption by serving tasty alternatives. In fact, according to Pulses.org (yes, really), “He is the first vegetarian chef to be certified as an Executive Chef by the American Culinary Federation and has 50 years’ experience in professional kitchens ranging from fine dining to quick-service restaurants. As a Food Technologist/Culinologist, his specialty is research and development of natural, vegan foodservice savory speed scratch products with pulses designed for chefs to cook with and build into their menus to serve healthy diners embracing vegetarian cuisine.” Wow!

Anyways, Chef Pickarski developed this vegan egg powder, and while it’s packaged for food service, you can get it on Amazon. Now here’s the thing, the Eco-Cuisine comes in only one size package, think Costco size, because it’s a food service product. But with this recipe you get the equivalent of 20 dozen eggs (and it’s shelf stable so it will last for ages, and you only make as much as you need at one time). 20 bottles of Just Egg would cost you about $100 (and it’s perishable). 20 dozen real eggs would cost at least that much. The package of powder holds the equivalent of 128 eggs, and if you break that down into “dozens”, it is just $4.80 for a dozen ‘eggs’, so really reasonable. But wait, there’s more! The Eco-Cuisine vegan egg powder is $1.53 per ounce (there are 32 ounces in the box), which is how you get the $4.80 for a dozen “eggs” price. But when you mix it with equal parts of chickpea flour, which even when organic sells (at least on Amazon) for just .34 an ounce, your final cost is just .93 per ounce, or just $2.79 per dozen “eggs”!

So while at first spending $48.95 on a box of powdered vegan eggs may seem like a lot, when you consider not only the ‘cost per dozen’, but that it’s shelf-stable, we think that it’s quite a bargain. What we do is split a box between a few people.

Speaking of Just Egg, the ingredients in Just Egg are water, mung bean protein isolate, expeller-pressed canola oil, dehydrated onion, gellan gum, natural carrot extractives, natural flavors, natural turmeric extractives, potassium citrate, salt, soy lecithin, sugar, tapioca syrup, tetrasodium pyrophosphate, transglutaminase, and nisin.

By contrast, here is what is in the Eco-Cuisine powder: organic soy milk powder (organic!), nutritional yeast (nooch!), black sea salt, methylcellulose, konjac gum, carrageenan, potassium carbonate and turmeric for color (contains water, maltodextrin, citric acid)

The absence of canola oil, sugar, and transglutaminase (which are all in Just Egg) makes us happy.

You can get the Eco-Cuisine vegan egg powder here on Amazon, and, while you’re there, in case you need it, here is a link to the organic chickpea flour on Amazon.

Finally, we owe a huge debt of gratitude to Andrew Dean, of Chino, California, who came up with the tip to mix the vegan egg powder half and half with the chickpea flour. Thanks, Andrew!

Powdered Just Egg Copycat Recipe


Equal parts:

Eco-Cuisine vegan egg powder (order here)
Chickpea flour (besan)

For each serving

1 Tablespoon powder mixture
1/4 cup ice-cold water*
1 teaspoon melted vegan butter or oil (optional)

*NOTE: A reader has said that they tried it with plain almond milk instead of water and that it was even better, which makes sense as almond milk has protein; we have not tried this yet however if anyone does please let us know in a comment how it worked out!


Mix the water into the powder mixture and whisk until thoroughly blended. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Heat a lightly greased (using vegan butter or oil) pan over medium heat.

Spread the vegan egg mixture over the pan, and cook like a pancake for about 2 to 3 minutes, until the egg has started to get firm on top, like a pancake. At this point you can do one of two things with it: if you want to make an omelette, flip the ‘pancake’ over, let cook for another minute or so, and then fold it over into an omeltte; or, to make a scramble, chop it up with your spatula or spoon, adding in the teaspoon of oil or melted butter, so that it takes on a scramble texture (that’s what’s in our picture).

You can also make a quiche with it, using 9 Tablespoons powder to 2 1/2 cups ice cold water, adding your mix-ins, pouring it into your pie shell, and baking it at 375° for 30 minutes or so, until it is firm to the touch. Note that we have not tried this ourselves yet, but found directions from Chef Pickarski himself.

  1. I will consider buying the powdered product. Currently I use JUST Egg to make a delicious NO CRUST quiche this way.
    In a regular pie pan.
    2 bottles of JUST Egg.
    Orange Peppers I cut very small- maybe 2 cups.
    Onions cut very small-1 or 2cups.
    Frozen spinach, thaw and soak up water in a clean kitchen towel- 2 cups about…
    Put spinach on bottom distributed evenly. Sprinkle peppers and onions over spinach.
    Pour most of 2 containers of JUST Egg slowly.
    Bake on a cookie sheet covered with parchment at 350 Fahrenheit for approx an hour. Test with toothpicks in center after 30-40 minutes. If liquid there use a fork to pull back the top to expose the center few inches so it cooks. Remove once the center is solid. Enjoy with soup or by itself!! Delicious!!!

  2. Hi, I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, because I’m following the recipe exactly, but the “pancake” takes forever to stiffen. Recipe says 2-3 minutes and then turn over, but when I do it, it never really firms up much, it stays liquidy even after cooking for close to 15 minutes! ??

  3. Do you know if Eco-Cuisine vegan egg powder is available in Canada (Quebec)? I’ve tried to purchase it on Amazon.com but they don’t ship to Canada.
    Thanks a million 🙂
