You have plenty of choices for the egg replacer.

The easiest is the ‘flax-egg’: simply mix 1 tablespoon flax seeds with 3 tablespoon of water water. Let it sit for a few minutes until it develops a gel-like consistency. 


1 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup peanuts or almonds
1 Tbsp oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 cup wholemeal breadcrumbs
1 egg replacer
2 tsp marmite dissolved in 2 cups hot water
2 Tbsp parsley, chopped
1 tsp mixed herbs
1 Tbsp lemon juice or cider vinegar

  1. Grind sunflower seeds and peanuts or almonds in a coffee grinder or food processor. Leave either coarsely ground or finely ground depending on your preference.
  2. Sauté onion in the oil and add to ground nuts and seeds in a bowl along with the rest of the dry ingredients. Mix well and then add wet ingredients. Mixture should be fairly wet.
  3. Place mixture in a greased/lined loaf tin and bake 45 mins at 180 C.
  4. Serve with gravy.
