This is a recipe from one of my favourite shops, Vincents Vegetarian in Footscray, Melbourne. This shop has pretty much every type of "meat" you can think of, but its all vegetarian. This recipe uses their vegie chicken nuggets, but you can also use tofu, or any other mock meat. If you cant find vegetarian oyster sauce, replace with soy, or just leave it out.
