This is an easy tasty meal and a lovely way to use imitation crab. I did a couple of things differently - I would have liked to use red cabbage. It would provide a lovely color contrast but all I had on hand was green cabbage. To add more color I added a carrot. Also, I like my vegetables a bit crisp so I cut the cooking time back to a total of 15 minutes. I added the crab & pea pods for the last 5 minutes. Thanks Maw's Kitchen for a lovely healthy dinner
Wow I didn't expect it to be this good.
We will definitely do this one again. An excellent blend of veggies and mock crab! Red cabbage was very good for for this recipe. The crab taste came through just to the right extent. We followed Bergy's suggestion to reduce cooking time for veggies, but not to the extent she did; as a result we found the veggies to have the crispness level we like. We waited to add the tomatoes and snow peas at the same time we added the mock crab. Other than for those changes, we followed the recipe to the letter. Serves four? More like six! Especially if you put it over rice.
