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.
Estimated Cost Per Serving: $1.35
