JustEgg vs Mung bean Scramble using Vegan Hacks Pod recipe

Image
Just Egg is a great vegan egg substitute but it is getting very expensive and it is also a plastic bottle with ingredients that I am not familiar with. This little bottle was on sale for $7 at the grocery store.  I have seen a few different recipes of recreations of Just Egg using mung beans but they all had ingredients i didn’t want to buy. Veganhackspod had a very simple recipe on his Instagram essentially just mung beans and black salt. I had a hard time sourcing these two ingredients in my area mung beans are usually easily accessible but they have been sold out at all the stores. After months of looking I finally found a bag at the grocery store for $3. This bag will last a long time.  I love black salt it is great for bloating and I personally like the taste. A lot of vegans will use it to make things taste like eggs. The only place I have been able to find it in my area is at whole foods but it is a giant bottle and I have very little space in my kitchen that size will go to was

Finish Dishwasher cleaner - November 14

Before using Finish Dishwasher cleaner in my dishwasher I have had this dishwasher for over 5 years and have never used a cleaner it. The most I have done is once in a while ran a vinegar soaked sponge through it.

Here are a few before pictures these dishes are clean its hard to see on camera but there are some streaks in them. let's see if the yellow gets cleaned clean dishes before dishwasher cleaner inside of the cup that will be washed again after cleaning ready to clean the dishwasher AFTER You can tell this did something as it is in a different location than where it started but did it work? I can't tell so I don't think so

Hon's Wun Tun House Hot and Sour Soup (Vegetarian requested)

I have a cold and wanted the perfect vegetarian soup just a little bit spicy to clear the sinuses but not insanely hot. Yes I have a soup maker and do make soup myself all the time but sometimes its better if someone else makes it for you. There aren't too many places where I would go to eat soup in my neighbourhood its hard to find good vegetarian options and I can make really good soup in less than 25 minutes in my soup maker. Then I remembered Hon's used to have a hot and sour vegetarian soup. Hon's is a chinese noodle house that has been in Vancouver for over 35 years. There are 5 locations in the lower mainland and there is one that is walking distance from where I live. I went to the take out desk and looked at the menu none of the soup was vegetarian. The hot and sour said it had diced seafood in it so I was getting disappointed but I asked and yes they can still make it vegetarian. The cashier asked if I wanted a small or large I said small. This cost $6.25 and I g
