‘Chicken’ Chow Mein


A classic – veganised! Mock-chicken pieces and veggies stir fried with noodles!

My dad came down to London for the day last weekend to do his routine ‘Wing-Yip’ shop – it’s an amazing huge Asian grocery store which stocks heaps of vegan foods!!!

He always gets these amazing chicken pieces (by TKC) made from soya protein so I stocked up on them too – you will be seeing them in loads of my recipes now! They’re my favourite chicken substitute as they have a meaty texture and have a really strong flavour too – WAY better than the real thing!! You can of course use any chicken substitute that you want 🙂

He also bought a big bag of choy sum and gave me half to use in one of my recipes 🙂 I was going to use them to make a stir fry but he told me about a noodle dish that he made with his, and I thought I’d do the same!!

I had a bunch of courgettes and broccoli in my fridge too so I thought I would chuck some of them in too! You can use which ever veggies you have available – sweetcorn, baby sweetcorn, peppers, mange toute, green beans… the list goes on!

Give it a go and let me know how you get on!
