Vegetable Egg Foo Yung

Updated on December 9, 2012
4.5 stars from 2 ratings of Vegetable Egg Foo Yung

Background

I know that I listed this as vegetarian, but it is also wheat free if you are wheat intolerant like I am. This will also please meat eaters, as the cook is free to also add a cup of whatever meat that you like: chicken, pork, shrimp, beef, or a combination. The sky is the limit! Having known many Chinese, I was given the unabridged version of this recipe, which is the same as what is made in the upscale Chinese restaurants in Chinatowns all over the country. Make this for yourself, and enjoy it with my Top Notch Authentic Chinese Vegetable Fried Rice. You will be glad that you did.

  1. Make gravy if desired with the final four ingredients. Mix all ingredients in saucepan. Slowly bring to a boil with frequent stirring. When thickened, turn heat to very low to keep warm
  2. Preheat oven to 200 degrees. You will be keeping the omelets warm as they are prepared. Line a platter with several thicknesses of paper towels.
  3. Mix the first 7 ingredients in a mixing bowl, except the vegetable oil. The oil will be used for frying the omelets.
  4. Heat frying pan hot and dry. Put in 1/2" of oil and keep at this level. Bring the temperature of the oil to medium.
  5. Stir up your omelet mixture each time prior to scooping it into the frying pan with a ladle.
  6. Take a scoop and gently put it in the frying pan. When one side of omelet is golden brown, gently turn over with spatula. As omelets are prepared, keep them warm in the oven.

      Yes, molometer, I have done that, too. It's easy to make camping, minus the gravy, and it will make people at the other campsites wander over.

      Great idea for a breakfast, I think too.

      It is light enough and filling too.

      If you do this recipe, you can also make my top notch authentic vegetable fried rice. Have a little jasmine tea with the meal, if I might suggest that, and have fun.

      Yummy! This does look good. I'll have to try it sometime. It seems like a little peanut butter sauce would be good on the side, too.

      You're welcome, Pandula. I can probably keep you out of a Chinese restaurant, if you like to cook. The only problem is with the egg rolls. You need an apple press for the veggies to stuff the egg rolls with!
