Traditionally Chinese food consisted mainly of vegetarian dishes because meat was expensive and scarce. That is why the Chinese word for food and dishes is "Cai" which is also the same word as "Vegetables" i.e. vegetables were the staple together with rice. This is a delicious dish that makes a great accompaniment to rice. It is a quick wok fried dish that uses mock chicken (pieces of soy beancurd that look and has the texture of meat) i.e. textured soy protein. When you season with some five spice and wok fry it with mangetout and cashew nuts, your friends wont even know its not real chicken! You can buy these in the frozen section of the Chinese supermarket or in tins or alternatively use large slices of Portobello mushrooms instead.
