Vietnamese Vegetarian Egg Meatloaf (Chả Trứng Chay)

This Vietnamese Vegetarian Egg Meatloaf substitutes meat with tofu, mushrooms, and other plant-based ingredients. The result is a delicious loaf that both vegetarians and meat-eaters will enjoy.

Vietnamese Egg Meatloaf (chả trứng) is a popular dish in Southern cuisine which is often served with rice and grilled pork chops. Today’s recipe is a vegetarian version of this dish, called chả trứng chay. It is inspired by what is served at one of  vegetarian restaurants in Saigon.

  • 9-10 oz silken tofu (or soft tofu)
  • 0.25 oz dried wood-ear mushrooms
  • 1.25 oz dried glass noodles
  • cooking oil
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots (about 2-3 shallots)
  • 1.5 oz fresh mushrooms, diced (such as king oyster mushrooms, about ½ cup diced)
  • 1/4 cup diced carrots (about half a carrot, 40g)
  • 2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black peper
