Veganism is more than a fad, it’s a food revolution! But many of our customers tell us that much of what is available on supermarket shelves is both processed and expensive. Here, at Sing Kee Foods, we are committed to supporting customers who are looking to embrace a more plant-based diet and create delicious food using affordable ingredients. Check out our recipe below for our vegan take on Chinese burgers (bao buns), perfect for summer parties.
