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.

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.
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.

Ku Loh back in the pan. Stir for another 3 minutes before you add cashew nuts. Lastly, stir for two minutes.
