Mongolian "Beef"

Happy Mushroom Monday!

This week’s recipe is so incredibly delicious, I wish you could lick the screen and taste it (I don’t recommend this though so please don’t lick your screen...ha!) Mongolian beef used to be my absolute favorite Asian dish! I didn’t realize how much I missed it until my family I recently went to have Asian takeout and I had to substitute tofu for the beef. Although the tofu was absolutely delish, it just didn’t quite hit the same not as the beef so I knew I needed to try and make a plant based alternative! This is the creation, and I have to say it’s better than any Asian take-out I’ve ever had.

Vegetable Fritters

Happy Mushroom Monday!

Unlike most veggie burgers I’ve tried, these stay together nicely and don’t fall apart at all. That’s why these are great just on their own, but they would be delicious on a bun with all the burger fixins’ too!
