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

I tried the KFC Canada Plant-Based Box Meal made with Lightlife







I haven't had KFC in years. In the past the KFC near me were joint with taco bell and the combination of the two greases was not a smell I enjoyed. Taco Bell or KFC by themselves are fine but I couldn’t handle the combo smell. Now fortunately for me one of the Taco Bell has closed and the KFC is still open.

I saw the sign of plant-based options at KFC when walking by in the food court. I had to do some research to know if this was new because I hadn’t seen any advertising. I knew the beyond chick’n was being introduced in the US this week and wondered if that was in Canada as well. There are a few new plant based choices using Lightlife in Canada for limited time. I chose to get the Meal box which includes sandwich, popcorn chick’n, drink, fries the cost is $12.40 I added tomato and my total was $13.68 yes it’s an expensive tomato slice but the meal price is pretty good for what you get don’t get the tomato. I wanted to try the popcorn chick’n but if you just want a sandwich combo you can get a coupon on kfc.ca for $6.99



In my research I discovered that the new plant based options use Lightlife in Canada. I also learned that the spicy mayo is now vegan but the reviews said it tasted bad so I didn't try it. There are a few other things on the menu that are plant based from the KFC website 

I got my meal with the coleslaw which I thought was good. I wasn’t asked if I wanted sauces but I’m sure I could have got one if I asked but I had bbq sauce and vegan mayo at home. 

I got this meal a few hours before I ate it and reheated everything in the airfryer. I had put the KFC paper bag inside a plastic bag and that inside a reusable cloth bag while I was walking home. I could smell the KFC smell all the way home. 

I tried the popcorn chick’n by itself without any sauce. It’s very good didn’t need any sauce. I also tried it with BBQ sauce still good. It is not dry and seasoned well I would recommend trying them. I give them a 10/10.


Next I tried the sandwich I thought it was okay but the one from Pizza Pizza is much better. I like my mayo spread out not in clumps. The chick’n part was good but it was dry because it’s so thin. Yes I did reheat it in the airfryer but I did the same with the one from Pizza Pizza and that one was juicy. The expensive tomato slice did nothing for the sandwich. Overall it is too dry for my taste it’s okay I would give it a 6/10. 

It is great that more fast food places are implementing plant based options and listening to feedback. I did see that KFC has heard the complaints first about the spicy mayo but being vegan and now that it is vegan not tasting right. I’m sure they will fix it.

I recommend you try the popcorn chick’n before it gets sold out they are very good.
