Vegetarian Egg(white) Foo Young

Submitted by: MADDY_AVENA
Vegetarian Egg(white) Foo Young

Introduction

revised to sub egg whites for whole eggs. Lighter, 0 cholesterol revised to sub egg whites for whole eggs. Lighter, 0 cholesterol
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    Egg white, 6 serving
    Spinach, fresh, 2 cups chopped
    Mushrooms, fresh, 4 medium sliced
    Scallions, raw, 2 small chopped
    *Bean sprouts or pea shoots, 0.75 cup
    Canola Oil, 1 tsp
    Sauce:
    Soy sauce (tamari), 2 tbsp
    Granulated Sugar, 1 tbsp
    Corn Starch, 1 tbsp

Directions

Beat egg whites until frothy. Saute mushrooms and spinach in canola spray. Add to eggwhites. Heat 1/2 the oil in a nonstick frying pan. Spoon about 1/2 a cup of veggie/egg mixture into very hot pan.
With a spatula, contain egg so it doesn't run too far outside the edges of the vegetables. Cook for about a minute then flip. Cook until egg begins to brown. Set finished pancake on a plate in a warm oven.
Repeat until you have made 4 pancakes.

While this is happening, in a small saucepan, heat 1/2 cup water, tamari and sugar. In a separate small bowl whisk cornstarch with 1T of COLD water. When sauce is simmering, stir in the cornstarch and continue simmering until it thickens. If you like a thicker sauce, repeat the cornstarch step. This is a thinner, lighter sauce than what you get in the Chinese restaurant.

Number of Servings: 2

    RECIPE IS OKAY! SODIUM IS WAY TOO HIGH PER SERVING;POTASSIUM IS A BIT HIGH FOR MY DIETARY NEEDS. THE NEXT TIME I WILL USE LOW-SODIUM SOY & ONLY 1/2 AS MUCH SPINACH( WILL SUB. IN MAYBE SHREDDED CARROTS OR SNOW PEAS) & USE SPLENDA OF COURSE. - 2/24/09

    I'm not a huge fan of egg foo young, but my boyfriend is and that's why I made it. We both thought it was delicious! For the sauce I used brown sugar and light soy sauce, with a dash of garlic powder and cayenne pepper. It turned out great :) - 6/15/08
