Eggless Egg Foo Young


I always crave Egg Foo Young when I am sick. Weird, I know… but I always know I am on the mend when I have the taste for it.

After making the scrambled “eggs” from Ashley over at Blissful Basil, I began to wonder if eggless Egg Foo Young was possible. I’m happy to say that it is!!!




Eggless Egg Foo Young


"Egg" batter

1/4 onion, chopped

1/2 cup carrots & peas, thawed

olive oil for pan

For the Sauce:

1 TBS cornstarch

1 cup vegetable stock

1/4 cup tamari

1 TBS siracha


Saute onions in a little olive oil, once soft, remove from pan.

Combine "egg" batter, onions, and carrots & peas in a bowl and mix well.

Heat a greased skillet over medium heat, when hot add 1/2 cup of the "egg"/veggie mixture. Let set up a bit, then scrape edges into the center to make a nice sized patty.

Cover and cook for 3-5 minutes until set up, then carefully flip and cover and cook an additional 3-5 minutes.

For the Sauce:

Combine cornstarch with a splash of vegetable stock to dissolve.

Add remaining vegetable stock, cornstarch mixture, tamari and siracha to a small saucepan.

Boil until thick enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 3 minutes.

Serve sauce over patties.

    Interesting. My dad always loved Egg Foo Young and I tried it so many times because he kept thinking I might like it but I wasn’t a fan. I’ll have to try this for him the next time we have homemade Chinese night. Thank you for linking up with us for Meatless Monday.
