What is JUST Egg?
JUST Egg is a liquid vegan egg product founded by Josh Tetrick back in 2011. The main ingredient in JUST Egg is mung bean protein isolate. Mung beans are a type of legume (similar to lentils, chickpeas, and soybeans!).
They are small, green in color and pack some great health benefits – they’re high in protein, a good source of fiber, antioxidants, B vitamins and minerals such as folate, manganese, and phosphorus.
In addition to mung beans, JUST Egg is made with non-GMO expeller pressed canola oil and less than 2% of dehydrated onion, preservatives, natural flavors, and coloring from natural carrot extractives.
JUST Egg is 100% plant-based, vegan, gluten-free, cholesterol-free, soy-free, and kosher-certified.
Does JUST Egg Taste Like Eggs?
Yes and no. In my opinion the texture and look of JUST Eggs once scrambled is very similar to regular egg scrambles made with the egg yolks. It’s yellow in color, a great texture, and really scrambles up well! If you can’t get on board with the texture of Silken Tofu Scrambled Eggs just yet, I think you may really enjoy the texture of JUST Eggs.
Where I think JUST Egg differs from real eggs is in the taste. JUST Egg is much more mild tasting – it’s missing that classic sulphur taste you’d get with eggs. Luckily, there’s an easy solution to this! Sprinkle about ¼-1/2 teaspoon of Kala Namak or black salt on your JUST Eggs right before eating and I think you’ll find it tastes VERY much like eggs.
Where to buy JUST Egg
Since its inception in 2011, JUST Egg has come a long way and is now widely available in large supermarkets and grocery stores such as Walmart, Target, Aldi, Safeway, Whole Foods Market, and more.
You can even find JUST Egg breakfast sandwiches in large chains like Peet’s Coffee, Philz Coffee, and restaurant menus that feature plant forward options.
When shopping for JUST Egg in stores, the liquid JUST Egg will be found near the regular eggs or pre-bottled egg whites. If shopping for the JUST Egg folded patties, check the freezer aisle.
How Long Will a Bottle of JUST Egg Last?
Once opened, a bottle of JUST Egg will spoil rather quickly (this is a good thing!). Plan to use JUST Egg within about 4 days of opening. In my experience – this is not difficult to do. Most times I use JUST Egg personally, I end up either cooking all of it in one sitting or use it up in two days back to back.
Most bottles also have a “best by” date to help you know how quickly you should plan on using it.
In my experience, JUST Egg has a tendency to stick to pans, especially when cooking omelets or vegan egg scrambles on the stovetop. This is much less of a concern with baked recipes, but I’d recommend lightly greasing the baking dish beforehand.
When making omelets or anything stovetop, definitely go with a nonstick pan. I tend to get a good amount of sticking even when using my well-seasoned cast iron pans with this product.
The best nonstick pan for vegan cooking is Caraway. They’re on the pricier side, but I’ve tested them extensively and when taken care of, they’ll last for years. They’re also so nonstick, I regularly use them for oil-free cooking and the food quite literally slides right out of the pan.
What Can I Use JUST Egg For?
As a general rule of thumb, the JUST Egg product can be used in any recipe where eggs are traditionally used. Don’t limit yourself to just using it at breakfast! You can also use it as a binder in veggie burgers and meatloafs, in corn pudding, in fried rice, Thanksgiving stuffing or dressing, baking cakes, cookies, and more.
If you’re using JUST Egg as an egg substitute in a regular recipe, use this simple measurement as a guide: 3 tablespoons of JUST Egg = 1 chicken egg. So, if you’re making a veggie burger recipe that calls for 2 regular eggs, substitute 6 tablespoons of JUST Egg. Easy peasy!

Now remember, these JUST Egg recipes are here to inspire you to try new things and branch out in the kitchen. If you’ve got an idea for a recipe, go ahead and give it a try. Again, you can use JUST Egg in ANY recipe that calls for regular eggs (with yolk – it does not do so well as an egg white). Use 3 tablespoons of JUST Egg for every 1 egg.
