Even though Blue Dragon has yet to re-open in the post-covid era, you can still get a taste of Ming Tsai‘s cooking (without having to crack open one of his cookbooks). The award-winning chef and TV personality, after turning his Fort Point restaurant into a relief center for restaurant workers, has been been busy perfecting a delicious and quick vegan meal option, MingsBings, inspired by his wife Polly’s strict vegan diet.
Polly, who’d transitioned to a meat- and dairy-free diet as she battled cancer, wasn’t able to find easy-to-make, vegan meal options in the supermarket, so chef Tsai put his skills to work perfecting the tasty “bings”, inspired by a Mandarin flatbread that’s usually stuffed with savory fillings. The veggie-packed, crispy brown rice-wrapped pancakes come frozen in four flavors: original veggie-filled Bing, Buffalo Cauliflower Bing, Plant-based Sausage and Peppers Bing, and Fiesta Bing (packed with plant-based chorizo beans and corn). They’re heat-and-eat ready for a hearty and healthy meal or a satisfying snack.
