This recipe is from Vegetarian Times (March 2010). I wanted to post it here because it's really good! My college makes a great version for us veggies.

I wanted to love this, but we just didnt'. The green beans were kind of sweet and we didn't care for them (I used fresh green beans that were blanched and frozen in the past). I did add bamboo shoots, sliced button mushrooms and a shredded carrot which were all tasty though. Served it over rice and it did come together quite quickly. Glad we tried it.
