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

Chick-Fil-A copy cat but vegan


I have been watching way to many copy cat YouTube videos lately. I have never even been to Chick-Fil-A but decided to make the sauce after I saw the recipe on Raphael Gomes channel. The only things in the sauce that are not already vegan were mayo and honey I have access to vegan substitutes. 

I found the vegan honey didn’t taste like honey it’s less sweet and has a darker flavour like molasses. It’s good though. Recipe is simple mix ingredients in a jar I didn’t follow exact measurements. I then let it sit in the fridge for an hour. 

That looks pretty close to the pictures I have seen of the sauce. It tasted pretty good if I make it again I will add more honey as it wasn’t sweet enough I didn’t account for the milder taste of vegan honey. 

I live close to a no waste grocery store and they sell beyond tenders by the piece. I had waffle fries in my freezer and use my airfryer to heat the tenders and fries. The tenders are a little expensive so I didn’t want to experiment with doing anything to them incase it didn’t work out. I think they are pretty good on their own. I cut them in pieces just to make them look more like Chick-Fil-A nuggets. 

The lemon I used was very juicy I had squeezed some of the lemon into my water and added some vegan honey. It It was kind of like a lemonade which is my favourite drink. While I was drinking the lemon water I looked up Chick-Fil-A desserts they have a lemon frosty.. I didn’t have the ingredients for a copy cat recipe but I had some vegan ice cream from a local company called the Merry Dairy in my freezer. The flavour is mint chocolate chip but the flavour is very subtle and to me tasted like vanilla with a few chocolate chips. I added it to my lemon water to see what would happen. It was so good the slight mint flavour made it taste like a fancy drink. I just mixed it with a spoon and it’s so frothy. This was my favourite part of the meal. 

This was a pretty good meal. I now live in an area that does not have easy access to fast food. Even though I have never had Chick-Fil-A it was nice to have something that is like fast food. I am glad I made it.
