Egg drop soup is easiest to digest. Sunny-side eggs are medium. Hard boiled eggs are difficult to digest. To make egg drop soup, scramble the egg in a bowl, then pour slowly into a simmering pot of water, while stirring gently.

Eggs act as an emulsiifier (as in mayonnaise, preventing the separation of water and oil), a binder (as in meatloaf) or an aerator (as in angel food cake). To cook without eggs, use tapioca as a binder, whey protein for aeration, or soy lecithin as a emulsifier. 1/2 cup of applesauce can replace an egg in many recipes.

Why are whole eggs not recommended for Pitta? I always thought the yolks were very nutritious and health giving?
