Mung Bean ‘Eggs’ or Vegan Cheese Sauce

This is part 2 of the previous blog post you can see here  JustEgg-vs-mung-bean-egg-using-vegan.html When I wrote the last  post I didn’t have black salt. I received my order from Amazon a few days ago. Black salt makes things taste like eggs and it also great for bloating, and I personally like the taste.  This time I put the soaked mung beans, seasonings a little oil and some water in the magic bullet. I think I put too much water. Last time I whipped the mixture with a fork before cooking it in the pan. This time I poured from the blender into the pan.  While it was cooking I thought this method would make a good vegan cheeze sauce. Just change the seasonings and thin it out with plant milk add vegan cheese. I only had baby bell cheese and coconut almond milk which wasn’t the best for a cheese sauce so i didn’t add much just enough to see if it would work. I will likely try to make a mung bean cheeze sauce in the future.  I had already added seasoning to make the mixture taste like

Tasty Easy no flour pancakes and snow days - December 18, 2016


We have had many snow days in Coquitlam in the last few weeks. This is not normal usually it snows once a year and its gone the next day. The temperatures are remaining low this year and although pretty it makes commuting difficult. I have cancelled attending a few things as it is too difficult to commute we get wet snow here so there is a lot of ice everywhere.  Downtown Vancouver was a little different you can't even tell there was any snow there some days were even nice and sunny with temperatures of -1 or -2 compared to -7 or less in other areas. I am grateful that we now have a skytrain close by as the path to get to the skytrain is cleared so I am able to commute much easier than before.

As it is holiday season with lots of eating and treats here is something that feels luxurious but is actually easy and healthy. I saw the recipe in a magazine and I went from memory when making them so adjusted things to my taste.











Easy No Flour Pancakes

1 ripe banana
1/4 of a cup Almond Butter
2 eggs


The recipe said  to mash the banana with a fork then mix the other ingredients. I just put everything in the magic bullet. I couldn't remember the rest of the recipe so i put ghee on my griddle pan and cooked like I would any pancake. The first one I had the heat too high as this is a little softer than a regular pancake so it cooked to fast and fell apart. After I  lowered the heat and poured the batter a little thicker they turned out like crepes in texture. They tasted like a banana pancake a little sweet with nothing on them but i like that. Add a little nut butter, honey or maple syrup to the top and these are a great breakfast.

Update
I made it a second time this time I added macadamia nuts to it. Turned out much better than the first time.
