Vegetable Chopsuey, Vegetarian Chop Suey
Vegetable Chopsuey, Vegetarian Chop Suey. I have included this all vegetable chop suey on our 2011 Celebration’s recipe for the reason that most likely everyone will be cooking meat for their Noche Buena or Buena Noche celebrations. A 100% vegetable dish would be good to break the expected meat dishes that you are planning to cook this coming Holiday Seasons. My version of Vegetable Chopsuey is made up of medley of vegetables and flavored with three kinds of fresh mushrooms. The mushrooms will give the required flavor for an all vegetable chopsuey. Now if you prefer your chop suey with meat or looking for other version of chopsuey see other chopsuey recipes on our archives.
