View Full Version : Substitution for evaporated milk in recipes?

Aug 25th, 2006, 01:34 AM
Does anyone know what I can use as a substitute for evaporated milk in recipes? Since it's thicker than regular milk, I don't think regular soy (or other nondairy milk) will work.

No clue, but maybe you could add some cornstarch to the soy milk? I really don't know if this would work, but maybe? To thicken using cornstarch add 2 parts to 3 parts warm water. I usually do 2T cornstarch to 3T water when making about 1 1/2 cups of gravy.

I'm not familiar with soy cream. Who makes it? I can see if I can find it in the US.

Silk makes a soy creamer but I don't think it would work too well. Kind of depends on the recipe I would quess.
