Vegetarian Egg Foo Young (Actually, It’s Vegan!)

This egg foo young recipe whips up very quickly. It’s also a rather inexpensive meal. If you are well-stocked with produce, chances are you only need to add bean sprouts and Follow Your Heart VeganEgg to your shopping list to throw this together.

Since this is a vegan recipe, there is no need to worry about the high cholesterol that usually comes with egg foo young. Nonetheless, you may want to eat this only occasionally. Though healthier than the traditional recipe, this isn’t a health food. An occasional treat is okay though, right?

  • 12 tablespoons Follow Your Heart VeganEgg
  • 2 1/4 cups ice cold water
  • 1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup bean sprouts
  • 1 stalk celery, sliced thin and cut into 1″ pieces

  • If you prefer a different vegan egg brand that cooks similar to eggs, feel free to use that instead. Just use enough to equal six eggs and reduce the liquid slightly.
  • If you don’t have an immersion blender, use beaters or a whisk.
