Every now and then I get a real craving for Chinese food, but hate the calories and MSG that usually goes with it. This recipe is a great way to satisfy that craving, while still keeping within your healthy eating plan.
I stumbled on this recipe awhile back, and have been making it periodically ever since. It’s super easy, fast and delicious. You can make ahead of time, it reheats well. Added bonus, it’s all made in one pot which saves a lot of clean up time.
There are multiple recipe variations out there, I settled on this one because it has the least amount of ingredients. I like to keep it simple and fast. This one comes from Complete Recipes, and definitely lives up to it’s claim of “easy”. I made with ground turkey instead of sausage, but you could use any protein you prefer. I also added onions because I love them! Another nice addition would be an egg scrambled into it. You can play with this recipe and make it your own.
Serve over cauliflower rice for a complete low carb, low calorie meal. Make sure to eat with chopsticks so you get the full experience!
