About this Recipe

I loved this dish so much when I was in Yunnan. I have not seen a recipe for a vegan version, so I made one!

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons oil (I use untoasted sesame oil)  
  • One bottle of liquid vegan egg
  • ¼ cup dried jasmine buds
  • Salt to taste (I prefer Himalayan salt)

Instructions:

  1. Soak jasmine buds in lukewarm water for 5 minutes.
  2. Pour oil in a pan set over medium-to-high heat. 
  3. After the oil starts to smoke a little, gently pour eggs in. 
  4. Add jasmine buds.
  5. Stir only after eggs seem cooked at the bottom. Stir about every 10 seconds until cooked. 
  6. Add salt, if needed.
