Scramble up some egg to make this classic Chinese dish but vegetarian style

Print this recipe
Vegetables feature heavily in traditional Chinese cooking and even meat-based dishes are easily adapted for vegetarians. Many of the recipes are cooked at high speed to retain a bit of vegetable 'bite' and preserving as much of the natural goodness in those veggies as possible.
It also makes the dishes perfect for those weekday evenings when you want something really delicious in less time than it takes to call for takeout!
