Quick and Easy Weekday Recipe: Vegetarian Kung Pao

Vegetarian Kung Pao

The secret to the delicious tasting Vegan Kung Pao is a plant based meat. The plant based meat is a perfect substitute for chicken in the classic Chinese meal because it soaks up the flavours perfectly. Another bonus to this delicious recipe is that it can be prepared and serve in only 30 minutes! 

The Vegetarian Ku Loh Meat is also a great option for vegans who want variety in their meals. It perfectly substitutes for chicken and pork while being rich and savoury. It is salty, sweet, and deliciously spicy. The chilli releases some of its sweet spicinesses into the oil before adding your fresh ginger and red peppers.

Ingredients for Kung Pao Sauce

  • 2 tbsp Dark Brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 tsp Fresh Ginger (chopped finely)
  • 1 tsp Cornflour
  • 100 ml (½ cup) Vegetable stock
  • 5 tablespoon of Light soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon of Dark soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoon of Rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon of Shaoxing wine or Mirin or dry white wine (Optional)
  • 2 teaspoon of  Hoisin sauce

 

How to Make the Kung Pao Sauce?

Step 1

Add browns sugar, cornflour, ground ginger, rice wine (or white wine), rice vinegar, Dark & Light Soy Sauce, vegetable stock. Finally, add Hoisin Sauce. Even though most Hoisin sauces are vegan, double-check to ensure it doesn’t contain fish sauce.

 

Step 2

Place the sauce on one side for now and then coat the veg. Ku Loh with cornflour, bicarbonate of soda, and light soy sauce. The coating of the vegan meat helps it brown quickly on the outside and remain juicy inside. It also helps to thicken the sauce when added. Fry using sesame oil for 5 minutes until it is slightly browned. Then remove from pan.

 

Step 3

Add more oil to the pan, with Chilli (pureed or sliced), fresh ginger, and peppers. Fry on high heat for one minute before adding the Kung Pao sauce. Stir continuously until it boils. Add the veg. Ku Loh back in the pan. Stir for another 3 minutes before you add cashew nuts. Lastly, stir for two minutes.

Your Vegan Kung Pao dish is ready to serve!

The chilli gives your vegan kung pao a fantastic spicy punch to get your taste buds tingling, but if you don’t like it spicy use only one chilli (or none!).

You can serve your Kung Pao up with basmati rice cooked with star anise to stick with the Asian taste or make some vegan noodles to serve with. You can also add some vegan-friendly spring rolls too!
