Vegetarian Loco Moco

8 Sep

Hawaiian Treat

Aloha! When I was in the Army my husband and I were stationed in Hawaii. We loved eating the local foods and we would go out every weekend for breakfast before heading to the beach on the Island of Oahu. My husband would have the Loco Moco,  a  Hawaiian style dish, which is a  hamburger patty,  fried egg, and brown gravy on a bed of rice. There are many variations, but this version is the most popular. I came up with my own version of the Loco Moco which is a vegetarian patty topped with a fried egg and vegetarian brown gravy on a bed of  rice. Oh this is so Ono!  Mahalo!

  • 2 Vegetarian Hamburger Patties
  • 1 can vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp. corn starch
  • 1 tbsp margarine
  • soy sauce
  • 2 eggs
  • hot cooked white or brown rice

Rice:  Ahead of time cook rice according to package directions either stove top or in a rice cooker.  I like using a rice cooker your rice will be perfect every time.

Burgers: heat frying pan until hot and cook the veggie burgers. Once cooked place burgers on the side.

Gravy:  Pour the can of vegetable broth into the pan that the burgers were cooked in and bring to a boil, lower the heat to a simmer and add a couple of dashes of soy sauce.  In a bowl whisk the cornstarch with 1 tbsp. of water to make a smooth paste and slowly whisk in the  corn starch mixture until the gravy Is thick and smooth. Add the margarine and season with salt and pepper. Turn off the heat and cover to keep warm until ready for use.

Eggs: Traditionally, the eggs are sunny-side up, but you can flip your egg if desired. Salt and pepper the eggs.

Assemble your dish from bottom to top: 2 scoops rice, the burger, the egg and pour the gravy all over.

Mahalo!  Enjoy!

Vegetarian Stroganoff made with Seitan

13 Mar

Here is my version for Vegetarian Stroganoff that I came up with  after seeing a picture of  Beef  Stroganoff  in a magazine.  I replaced the beef with Seitan because it has a meaty texture that can mimick beef and  I added broccoli and carrots to make it more healthy.  You can find Seitan and the Vegetarian Gravy at Whole Food’s Market and  most  Food Stores.  Trader Joe’s sells Beefless Strips which can also be used in this dish.  You can also find Vegetarian Gravy  at  your local supermarket, look  for mushroom gravy in a can, read the ingredients to make sure no animal products are used.  If you can’t find the gravy you can always make your own. I will post a recipe real soon.

  • One package of Seitan
  • 1 cup of broccoli
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
