Westjet economy vs Air Canada business class

In June I knew I was going to Vancouver from Ottawa and if you know me I can’t buy anything unless it’s on sale. If you are new to my blog I lived in Vancouver almost my whole life and last year I moved to Ottawa so I go to Vancouver frequently to visit friends and relatives. The hotel I like to stay at usually sends me a personal promotional rate once a month. See my YouTube video here of the Riverrock hotel suite  Riverrock Hotel Richmond BC The hotel prices in Vancouver had increased significantly since the last time I visited in February. I had started looking to visit in May when I wanted to go to Plant Expo but the prices were too high. I still wanted to visit and I was looking at flights earlier. While searching I thought the business class flight is less than it normally costs to fly economy.  I was tempted to book it and cancel later if the hotel didn’t work out which I didn’t do it but I should have because if I booked it then would have been less than my economy flight I sti

Mung Bean ‘Eggs’ or Vegan Cheese Sauce

This is part 2 of the previous blog post you can see here 


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 eggs so I added some vegan butter, plant milk, and baby bel cheese attempting to get a vegan scramble. It was holding together in a ball. I thought i could shape it into an omelette and so I put half the mixture on the plate at first in an omelette shape. After it had cooled a bit I was playing with it and it ended up being an egg patty shape. This will make such a good breakfast sandwich or a great stuffed patty for lunches. The texture looks so good. I put the patty in my fridge overnight and will eat it later to see if it firms up after cooling. I think this will be a great meal prep idea.

I cooked some of the mixture a little more to try and get a scramble. It tasted great especially with black salt added but if you want to make a scramble cooking the mixture like a pancake and then scrambling it gets a firmer texture. 

Mung beans with some spices and a few additions make a cheap and healthy meal. The same ingredients with slight variations to the seasonings and cooking method made three distinct dishes. I personally don’t follow recipes exactly I like experimenting but some of you have asked for a recipe. The original recipe is from VeganHacksPod which can be found here VeganHacksPod.
