In the 20th Century, a new entrée began to turn heads in the United States: moo shu pork. As a Northern Chinese dish, it shook up the scene of American Chinese food, most of which reflected the culinary traditions of the Southern provinces. This recipe puts a vegetarian spin on classic moo shu. We're sautéing shiitake mushrooms, carrots and cabbage­—then wrapping the vegetables up in moist, delicate Chinese pancakes. Served on the side, sweet plum sauce puts the dish over the top.

Moo Shu Vegetables with Pancakes & Plum Sauce ingredients
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Crack the eggs into a bowl; beat until smooth. Cut off and discard the mushroom stems; thinly slice the caps. Peel the carrots and cut into matchsticks. Thinly slice the celery on an angle. Peel and mince the garlic and ginger. Cut off and discard the root ends of the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and green tops. Cut out and discard the cabbage core; thinly slice the leaves crosswise.

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 6 minutes, or until browned and slightly crispy. Add the carrots and celery; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened.
