Product review: Vegetarian Plus Kung Pao Chicken

http://vegetarian-plus.com/product/vegan-kung-pao-chicken/

Before we tried this, we had a few other products from the company. First off, with the exception of the sauce, the 'meat' tastes the same from product to product. It's okay, so don't get me wrong on that.

This one, however? Paul and I each tried a little bit of sauce when we opened the package. We very nearly threw the whole thing away. But we decided to see if heating it would change anything. It did. It make it heated stuff that should have been thrown away.

The 'meat' again had the exact same initial taste as the rest of their products. The sauce was...what's the word? Oh, icky. Hours after we ate it, we were still belching the flavor, and couldn't get it out of our mouths no matter what we did.

I'm not saying don't try this product, but do proceed with caution.

1. I got tired of paying almost $5 for a tiny bottle of Kung Pao sauce.

Here's my recipe:

1/2 cup water
2 T soy sauce
2 T rice vinegar
2 T Annie Chun's Korean Sweet Hot Sauce
1 T agave
1 T Tapitio or other hot sauce, preferable without vinegar

1 T cornstarch mixed with 1 T water

Mix & heat the top ingredients in a small sauce pan. When the mixture comes to a boil, add the cornstarch/water & whisk until the sauce gets thick & glistens. This makes a pretty spicy sauce, so back off the Korean sweet hot sauce if you like it mild. I cook Udon noodles, pour the sauce on top, add steamed broccoli, cubes of baked tofu & some peanuts for a scrumptious meal!
