No Meat Chop Suey (Filipino-style Stir Fry Vegetables)

Typically, Filipino Chop Suey is composed of meat and vegetables, but today I’m cooking No Meat Chop Suey that includes only vegetables and no meat, obviously. This recipe is good for vegetarians and vegans, or for those people who sometimes get sick of eating meat (just like me in some days).

What is Stir Fry? It is basically a mixture of colorful vegetables cooked in a sweet and savory thick sauce. It is very easy to make, requires simple ingredients and less than 30 minutes to cook.

It is either you have a busy day and have no energy to make fancy dinner or you only have a few ingredients left in your fridge, and that is why you are here. To be honest, I made this recipe because those are the only ingredients that were left in the fridge. No meat. And so I said, why not make stir fry? That’s the easiest dinner I can make with just a few ingredients. So let’s begin.

How to Make No Meat Chop Suey (Filipino-style Stir Fry Vegetables)?

First, let us heat cooking oil in a wok or pan over medium-high heat. Then saute onion. Once the onion is transparent, add the garlic and continue until it is fragrant. Add carrots, cauliflower and broccoli. Stir for 2 minutes. Add cabbage, bell pepper and celery. Toss and stir for 2 minutes. Add soy sauce, oyster sauce and water. Let it boil for 5-7 minutes. Then let us make the slurry. In a small bowl, add 1 tablespoon of cornstarch and dilute in 1/2 cup water. Add the slurry sauce onto the vegetables. Toss, cover and cook for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a serving plate and serve.
