Vegetarian American Chopsuey

Although Chopsuey as a dish seems pretty complex to make, this recipe is quick, easy and the end result is delicious. All the ingredients used can be found in any kitchen. Chopsuey has been my favourite since my college days. After I moved to the hills where getting around wasn’t easy and after having my kids, outings were a tough task, I decided to learn and make it myself at home.
