Chinese Mu Shu Vegetables {vegan}

Mu Shu

Traditionally made with pork, though often made with chicken or shrimp, Mu Shu is a simple and delicious authentic Northern Chinese recipe that’s easily adapted and made healthier. By keeping the focus on the vegetables, the fiber and nutrients go up, and the fat and cholesterol go down. Cabbage offers a deluge of health benefits, including high doses of vitamins C and K, beta-carotene, and sulforaphane, which is touted for its cancer fighting properties. For a gluten free option, serve this mu shu over brown rice. This recipe also makes for great leftovers, so feel free to double it for easy and healthy meals all week long.
