I love Chinese food, so I bought a Chinese vegetarian cookbook.
I tried this recipe first thing, and it was really good.
It tasted a lot like the sweet and sour you get at Chinese restaurants.

(from Very!Very! Vegetarian! by Chen-Hsia Wang published by Wei Chuan publishing)

  • 1 cup vegetarian meat chunks (I think this can be purchased from an Asian market.
    I just used TVP chunks)
