Pancit

BY : PUBLISHED : April 29th, 2013 UPDATED: October 17th, 2022

The other day I was craving pancit.  It is one of my favorite dishes my mom makes.  But since switching to a plant based diet, I can no longer eat it.  I decided to find a way to make it plant based.  I was pleased with the outcome.  It is not exactly my mom's version, but it is close.  Pancit is great for potlucks, a side dish, or even a main dish.  You can use tofu, or seitan in this dish, or skip both.  Make sure you squeeze in some lemon juice, it gives it a great flavor boost. And of course, make sure you add sriracha! Enjoy.
