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

This omelette is vegan


 

The first time I tried Justegg I wondered what all the hype was about. Later I found out it if it is close to the expiry date it doesn’t work the same as a fresh batch. Justegg is a vegan egg substitute that is mostly made from mung beans and the most popular vegan egg substitute in North America. It is pretty easy to make a homemade version if you don’t want to use a commercial product. I moved and have been having trouble sourcing ingredients but I will make it in the future. Justegg is available at a few stores in my area

I have tried Justegg a few more times and it was much better. It is easier to get fresher bottles where I live now. The instructions say to scramble it just like you are making scrambled eggs. I have tried to make an omelette with it in the past it didn’t work the eggs would just get scrambled. 

I have only been vegan for about a year and I am very experienced in making egg omelettes. I even used to work on a brunch as the omelette maker. I realized that when I make omelettes I don’t just crack the egg in a pan which is the equivalent of squeezing Justegg from the bottle to the pan. I always put the egg in a bowl with a little water, spices, and mix it with a fork. 

This worked so much better. It is pretty close to cooking an actual omelette. The difference is I wasn’t able to flip it but it still turned out really well. 

Vegan cheese has also come a long way. I had a block of vegan ilchester cheese that said it was great for melting. The block cost $9 which seems expensive but it is comparable with buying a higher quality dairy cheese. I cut it into pieces put a little water in the pan and covered until the cheese melted. If I had taken the time to grate the cheese it would have looked perfect but it was still great and melted. I still remember what omelettes taste like and the only difference between this an egg omelette is this is fluffier if you had it a restaurant you would wonder what the chef’s secret ingredient is. It is so good please let me know if you try it. You can find me on Instagram @livingottawalocal.
