This isn't really authentic, but it's easy and very tasty. It comes from a Canadian low fat cookbook called "Crazy Plates" by sisters Janet & Greta Podleski.

It is excellent, easy to make and my children love it. I add boneless, skinless chicken breasts to add protein, and sub bell peppers and zucchini for the bean sprouts to satisfy my children.

Excellent and very easy to make. I add tofu and/or scrambled egg for more protein and usually make 1 1/2 times the sauce to up the flavour a little.
