Recipe by Big Fat Vegan
Fast, ferocious and full of delicous asian flavour! I discovered this recipe when trying to magically recreate my favorite take out recipe. It isn't the same thing, but I actually like this a little better. You can find "Mock Duck" (braised gluten) in some major grocery stores or in Asian specialty stores. Serve with rice, rice noodles, shanghai noodles or slip into something a little less traditional like quinoa or spaghetti noodles.
