Vegetarian Chop Souey

This is an easy, recipe that feeds 4 hungry people. It calls for just a few ingredients and doesn’t take much time to throw together. (The rice is the most time consuming part). Delicious!


2 lg. onions, cut in half and thinly sliced

5 stalks celery, 1/2 inch slices

1 1/2  – 2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

1 can (15 oz.) bean sprouts (or you can use your own fresh bean sprouts)

1 large mixing spoonful of molasses

1 large mixing spoonful of soy sauce

1 pkg. Lightlife Smart Strips (steak style veggie strips)


Saute onions in one Tbsp. oil. Add celery and just enough water (or vegetable broth) to cover. Cook for about 5 minutes.

Then add the bean sprouts, seasonings, molasses, and soy sauce. Stir well to blend, and heat to boiling.

Thicken mixture with 1 Tbsp cornstarch diluted in 1/3 c. water. Stir until gravy thickens.

Add Smart Strips and cook for about 10 minutes to heat through. (If using fresh bean sprouts add them now instead of earlier and cook until they start to wilt, but don’t let them get mushy.)

Serve over cooked brown rice.
