I took my recipe for Szechuan Noodles With Spicy Beef Sauce because it is so popular, and changed it to make it vegetarian! So good with lots of veggies! Enjoy! NOTE:I have used frozen stir fry vegetaables to keep this recipe quick and easy, but also added fresh vegetables for those who can take a few more minutes. They are just suggestions, you may add whatever vegetables you would like!
- 6 ounces veggie crumbles (I use Morning Star Meal Starters-1/2 of a 12 oz. pkg.)
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 (12 -16 ounce) packagefrozen stir fry vegetables (I use Oriental)
IF NOT USING FROZEN STIR FRY VEGETABLES
- 1⁄2 cup sliced mushrooms
- 1⁄4 cup sliced red bell pepper
- 1⁄2 cup sliced napa cabbage
- 1 carrot, thinly sliced
- 1⁄4 cup sliced water chestnuts
- 3⁄4 cup chopped onion
- 2 teaspoons minced garlic
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
- 1⁄2-1 1⁄2 teaspoon dry crushed red pepper (you control the heat!)
- 2 tablespoons sesame oil
