Vegetable Moo Shu Wraps

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.
