Vegetarian, Low-Carb, or even add chicken. This is a great, versatile recipe. I replaced the mushrooms with zucchini. Add cilantro to give it a kick. Low-carb: replace chinese noodles with Dream Fields Pasta or no pasta at all. From Vegetarian Times: Low Fat & Fast.

Thank you. This was excellent. I added broccoli florets in with the carrots and used zucchini & some green capsicum instead of snow pea pods. I also used ordinary peanut butter. I served it over jasmine rice instead of noodles. We really enjoyed this and I'll definitely make it again. .
Excellent flavor! My wife and I both agreed that this is a keeper. I do think that GOOD peanut butter is the key... I used organic chunky peanut butter. Since we keep dried shiitake mushrooms in our pantry, I rehydrated them in 3/4 cup of water and used the water in the recipe. I used yakisoba noodles (from Safeway) right out of the package. This recipe was soooo simple but soooo good. Thanks! â€”
