  2. In a small bowl prepare so called flax egg. Combine 2 tablespoons of ground flaxseeds with 6 tablespoons of water, mix well and set aside for 10 minutes to thicken.
    Just for your information, 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed mixed with 3 tablespoons of water is a vegan alternative to one egg.
