Oriental Chopsuey

Oriental Chopsuey
Oriental Chopsuey. Chopsuey is a very popular vegetable dish. We as Filipinos have come up with our own individual variation that suits our taste and the availability of ingredients. There are no exact measurements of ingredients. I myself have cooked it in several variations. How ever on this post I am presenting it with a touch of Mongolian. I have mention that there is no exact quantities of ingredients, therefore whatever ingredients that are in these recipe are items that I have on my refrigerator and cupboard at the time of cooking. You could always adjust the ingredients base on what ever available or base on your preference.
