“I love egg foo yung, but wanted to veganize it. This looks like just the thing! Baked instead of pan-fried, it’s so much better and flavorful than the eggy version. It’s good with or without the gravy. Black salt has a slightly sulfur taste like hard boiled eggs. You can leave it out if you wish. From chowvegan.”
8-10 patties

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Drain and rinse the tofu, wrap in paper towels and place a heavy weight on top. Press for about an hour. While the tofu is pressing, chop the vegetables.
  2. Heat a wok to hot. When hot, add the oil and swirl to coat the wok. Add the celery and leeks, sauté for a few minutes, add the mushrooms and water chestnuts and cook for another minute or so. Place in a bowl and set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
  4. Crumble the tofu, add the rest of the ingredients and blend well together. Scoop out a 1/4 cup of the mixture and shape into a patty on a oiled baking sheet. Brush the top of each patty with oil, flip over and brush the other side. Bake for 15 minutes, gently flip over and bake another 15 minutes.
  5. To make the gravy, heat the broth with the soy sauce and sugar. Combine the cornstarch with a little bit of cold water and mix until smooth. When the broth comes to a boil, slowly add the cornstarch mixture and stir to desired thickness.
  6. Top the foo yung with gravy and garnish with the green onions, serve immediately.
