Healthy Chop Suey Recipe

Stir-fry-Chop Suey

2019 I love you already!

This healthy Chop Suey Recipe is the flavor bomb of my life lately. Want to know what I feel about this recipe? Wait- I’m trying to think on how to describe my feeling for this recipe. A perfect combination of flavors, fresh vegetable, crunchy- filling textures, colorful and nutritious foods together in one pan.

Are you familiar with this Chop Suey dish?

Chop Suey is an American-Chinese Cuisine. Usually, it consists of meat (often fish, chicken, shrimp, pork or beef). Interesting, this means we can choose according to our preferences. If you want chicken then go for it. Do you want a slice of pork to mix with this recipe? The choice is yours! But for me, I prefer using shrimp for my Chop Suey recipe.

There’s a long list of conflicting stories about the origin of this recipe, so instead of talking about that myth, we better talk about the composition of this Healthy Chop Suey Recipe that I made.

My favorite part in cooking this recipe, you can use as much assortment of veggies as you like. You have the choice to add more vegetable if you like and omit veggies that you don’t like.

Chop Suey is an easy and quick stir-fry recipe, therefore, it is a great vegetable dish for dinner party or just an everyday healthy meal.
