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.

The mall is built on first nations land as it is about a 40 minute drive from Vancouver.

I saw this amazing Vegan Hollandaise recipe from  www.hookedonplants.ca  I had to get cashews to actually try it. I made a few changes using the ingredients I had. The result is so good it inspired me to write a blog post. The recipe calls to soak cashews overnight I soaked them for 10 minutes. I also replaced the lemon juice with pressured cooked ginger lemon my friend made for me. I used curry spice, herbamare sea salt, and pepper for seasoning. I put all the following ingredients in the magic bullet  half a cup of cashews 1 tablespoon of nutritional yeast seasoning After blending it was too runny so I added another 10 cashews and a tablespoon of nutritional yeast The texture is great except I should have soaked the additional cashews To make tortilla chips heat a tablespoon of olive or coconut oil in a pan (I used olive this time coconut in the past) fold corn tortilla (365 by whole foods is my preferred tortilla) into triangles and fry f
