Vegetable Moo Shu Wraps

Vegetable Moo Shu Wraps

Serves 8

30 minutes or fewer

Skip the restaurant, and enjoy Chinese food at home with a veggie stir-fry served with hoisin sauce and moo shu pancakes (found in the frozen section of Asian markets). To assemble, smear hoisin on a pancake, spoon in stir-fry, and roll like a burrito. Vegans can substitute rice paper wrappers and swap baked tofu strips for the eggs and agave syrup for the honey. Recipe by Kirstin Uhrenholdt.
Sauce
  • ½ cup vegetable broth or water
  • 2 Tbs. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 Tbs. sesame oil
  • 1 Tbs. rice wine vinegar or lime juice
  • 2 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. honey
Filling
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 Tbs. vegetable oil, divided
  • 1 small red onion, sliced (1 cup)
  • 2 Tbs. grated fresh ginger
  • 1 cup large stemmed shiitake mushrooms, cut into thin strips
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (2 tsp.)
  • 3 cups shredded cabbage
  • 1 ½ cups snow peas, sliced lengthwise
  • 1 ½ cups shredded carrots
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
Wraps
  • 16 Chinese moo shu pancakes or small, thin flour tortillas
  • Large lettuce leaves, optional
  • Hoisin sauce, for spreading inside wrappers

1. To make Sauce: Combine all ingredients in jar, close lid, and shake to combine. Set aside.

2. To make Filling: Whisk together eggs, soy sauce, and sesame oil in bowl. Heat 1 1/2 tsp. vegetable oil in wok or large skillet over medium heat. Add eggs, swirl to spread over pan, and cook 1 minute. Flip with spatula, and cook 1 minute more. Slide onto cutting board, and slice into thin strips. Set aside.

3. Wipe out wok or skillet, add remaining 1 1/2 tsp. oil, and heat over medium-high heat. Add onion and ginger; stir-fry 2 to 3 minutes, or until onion begins to soften. Add mushrooms and garlic, and stir-fry 5 minutes, or until mushrooms are golden. Add cabbage, snow peas, carrots, and green onions; stir-fry 
2 minutes more. Stir in Sauce, and simmer 2 to 3 minutes, or until Sauce thickens. Fold egg strips into stir-fry mixture. Transfer to serving platter, and serve with warm moo shu pancakes, lettuce leaves (if using), and hoisin sauce.

Warning? I made it using napa cabbage. Huge mistake. The dish was super watery.

I LOVE these!!

This was delicious!! My husband is not a vegetarian, he added shredded chicken to his and also enjoyed it. I will definitely make this again but will use some short cuts as there is a lot of prep involved.

This was very good. I didn't have carrots or green onion and it turned out fine. I used whole wheat wraps in place of the pancakes. We will be making this again!

Bagged coleslaw salad vegetables (often sold alongside bagged lettuce) is a great shortcut as it already contains the cabbage and carrots pre-cut into shreds!

The dish is delicious, but a lot of prep work. I can see why people just do take-out. I left out the green onion and didn't miss it. Used baby portobella mushrooms instead of shiitake and the dish turned out very well.

Love this dish, lots of prep however worth it. I use purple cabbage because it makes the dish so colorful. I am a want to be vegan, so if I can make a dish that my non vegan guy enjoys then it’s a win win.

This is definitely going on my 'to-do' list! Thanks for the recipe!

Made this for dinner tonight and I loved it! Used tortilla's and cut out some of the onion...just because I am not a fan of onions. Other than that... I followed the recipe. If you are thinking about making this....you should!

If you plan on using this as your entree, it feeds about 3! NOT 8!

Colin - 2012-07-10 23:04:49

We love this meal!. I make it twice a month, and we never get tired of it. I use flour tortillas to wrap it up, since they are cheaper and easier to find than moo shu pancakes.

Julie Wysocki - 2012-06-10 22:07:00

These turned out quite well. Added 1/2 tsp of chili garlic sauce for a little heat in the dish but other than that, followed recipe exactly as written.
