"Chop suey is basically a meat and vegetable stir fry recipe with a thickened sauce. It is one of my favourite Chinese foods. This recipe is easy to put together and one my family requests quite often. If gluten intolerant make sure you are using gluten free soy sauce."

Not only can you add eggplant into the chop suey recipe, but you can also serve, on the side, this roasted garlic Japanese eggplant recipe.

Korean Sticky Rice is another great side dish that goes well with this meal. Get the recipe here.

Step 1

Whisk together the stock, corn starch, soy sauce, mirin, fish sauce, sesame oil, ginger, garlic and pepper; set aside.

Step 2

Pour the vegetable oil into a wok or large skillet and bring to medium-high heat.

Step 3

Add the carrots, celery, onion and bell pepper and cook until a la dente, about 10 to 12 minutes. (If veggies start to stick, add a bit of water, about a tablespoon at a time.)

Step 4

Add the shrimp and bean sprouts and cook until shrimp is heated through.

Step 5

Give the sauce a quick mix and pour into the wok or skillet; cook until thickened and sauce sticks to the vegetables.

Great Chop Suey! I added pea pods, mushrooms and baby corn. Loved the crunch from all the veggies and this tastes so good.
