Another substitution

Yes it is another vegetable substitution. I had run out of eggs and was making chicken strips, so I experimented and  used carrot.

I placed sliced carrots in a steamer in a pot. Steamed them until tender and blended them, using the water from the steamer to make it smooth and runny.

Using the usual method, I have a bowl of brown rice flour, then carrot puree, then crushed cereal flakes. taking the strips cover in flour then carrot then cereal.

place on a baking sheet and lightly cover in sunflower. Bake in a oven at 350 until cooked.

My husband thought these were great and better than when cooked with egg!! 🙂

    You could also use ground flax seed mixed with a bit of water – have you ever used that as an egg sub?
