vegan substitutes? Answered

Dear Jen World,
since 4 years now our family decided do eat
vegan, at least when eating at home. We learned and know lots of jummy
recipies also when it comes to baking. Still sometimes it's interesting
to enlarge our knowledge and we try to convert non-vegan recipes into
vegan ones. Can you refer to a good list of general substitutes for
eggs, milk, butter, chees, cream etc. so we can compare it whit ours?

Forthermore i am very curious in taking this course since i have a degree in process engineering and love cooking and baking.

Thanks for sharing!

The next time you cook chickpeas, save the watery substance! This can be used for meringue (chia/flax has seeds) or egg whites in general. Egg yolks can be substituted with avocado or nut butter (unsalted cashew should work) or anything else that is creamy but slightly more dense. And, I've never heard of oat milk, actually (maybe due to the fact that I practically live under a rock).
