For the Crackers:

  • 10 vegan egg roll wrappers
  • Non-stick spray (olive oil flavor, if available)

For the Chick'n Stir-Fry:

  • 1/2 cup celery, diced
  • 1 cup diced granny smith apple, mixed with a little lemon juice to preserve color
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2-3/4 tsp (1/2") ginger, peeled and minced
  • 1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
  • 1 package faux chicken strips, chopped into small pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds + more for serving
  • 1/2 cup raw walnuts, chopped or broken into pieces
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil


  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray baking sheets lightly with non-stick spray. Stack 3-4 wrappers at a time and cut into 9 squares. A pizza cutter or long chef's knife make it easier.
  2. Place the squares one at a time, 1/2" apart on the baking sheets. Spray lightly with non-stick spray. Bake until golden - the edges will curl slightly. Remove to a cooling rack, tinfoil or extra baking sheet. Cool completely before storing gently in a zipper storage bag.
  3. In a sauté pan, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Cook garlic and ginger about 1 minute.
  4. Add apples and celery. Cook 2 minutes.
  5. Add vegan chicken, sesame seeds, pepper flakes, soy sauce, and hoisin. Cook and stir for about 3 minutes until heated and combined.
  6. Add walnuts and cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in cilantro and sesame oil.
  7. Top crackers with spoonfuls of hot chicken mixture. Garnish with sesame seeds.
