If you are missing your weekly Chinese Food Take out fix – here is a really scrumptious alternative sans the beef or chicken. I make this all the time and usually serve some egg drop soup, and some fish potstickers along with it.
This is another great WOK recipe – and because you are making it at home – much healthier than the version you get at the store.
Don’t worry if you do not have hoisin sauce you can use a sweet teriyaki instead. (can get in any kosher supermarket – brands like mikee’s and kedem both make)
Make this for dinner tonight and have Asian Night – have some fun and buy a few $.50 Chinese containers in Michaels, serve with a set of chopsticks. As kids my mother let us sit on the floor with pillows and eat Chinese style!
