Chinese Brunch-Fry

Chinese food is much better when good Chinese food is prepared. Chinese food is much greater when good Chinese food is prepared at home. Chinese food is the best when it is consumed out of the ordinary context, as in, for breakfast or brunch. Perhaps, in the same concept as to why breakfast for dinner is so exciting.

Grilled Ⓥegg Ⓥholl

A Vegan version of a Vietnamese Pho idea was prepared a few days prior to the Grilled Ⓥegg Ⓥholl abstraction. In a previous blogging, my Ⓥho version was posted in basically laziness in just pictures. Today, I will reiterate with a few words and ingredients.

ⓋHO

UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_1ec4

Veggie Broth, Merlot, Balsamic & Rice Wine Vinegar, Sriracha, Roasted Garlic, Sugar,  (freshly ground) Coriander & Fennel, Ginger, Dill, Sesame Seed Oil, Sea Salt & Pepper and Thyme was brought to a boil in a pot. Seitan, Cheican, crumbled Tofu, diced Onion, Carrot, Cauliflower, Sweet Potato, Celery, Russet Potato and whole/halved Cashews were added, covered and simmered for a while. After a while, quartered Mushrooms, Wild Rice, Bean Sprouts and Scallions were added to simmer until Wild Rice became tender where Rice Noodles were added and covered while taken off of the simmering heat.

BOOM. DELICIOUSNESS.

In the past, I’ve made some foods with wonton wraps which contain a tiny amount of eggs. Steering away from wontons, a 100% Ⓥegan Ⓥegg Ⓥholl was brainstormed. Let’s stuff Tortillas with my Ⓥho and let’s grill it a bit. This idea would be great with a Chili Sauce, but without dipping. Apologies to any and all dipsticks, but I’m too lazy for any of that noise.

In a sauce pot, Water was simmered with Ginger, Garlic, Crushed Red Pepper, Rice Wine & Balsamic Vinegar, Sugar, Sriracha, Sesame Seed Oil, Sea Salt & Pepper and Dill. I mechanically tried chopping some ingredients first. Corn Starch was added to thicken.

Ⓥho was stuffed into a warmed Tortilla and wrapped burrito-style to be slightly grilled. The Chili Sauce was panfried with the Grilled Ⓥegg Ⓥholl and sliced in half to be served with more Ⓥho.
