Based in San Francisco Hampton Creek Foods is on a mission to change the foods we eat by eliminating the animal products inside of them! Sounds like a big plan, and part of that plan is their first mission to make the egg obsolete by replacing it with plants! Sounds like witchcraft to me, but they use some rather amazing food technology to do just that. This is not just food production, it is food science! But the challenge is to try out their ingredients and see I they really do taste the same. And to do that I have taken just a small selection of the recipes I found on their site. Join me as I take a look at just ten of those recipes and when you have finished here why not check out the science behind their wild claims over on the Hampton Creek wiki page, but do hurry back because we have some amazing recipes to make…

Bruschetta with tomato and basil is a quick, simple and very tasty dish that is great to serve at your next party. I found the recipe is at it’s best when you make a mixture of olive oil, garlic, and parsley, then spread it all over the toast even before you have topped it with the tomatoes! It like a whole new level to this recipe that you might not have thought of.

Potato salad made from hot boiled potatoes is a great Sunday meal that the whole family will enjoy. You can really mix this recipe up by tweaking what you cook with the onions. It might defeat the point of having the egg free mayo, but adding some bacon to this recipe and really change the way it looks and tastes. Why not try it with some meat free bacon!
