Chopsuey with Baby Corn

Hi, people! It’s a fresh new year, coming down to our plates. The final of weeks of 2016 were just so busy that we didn’t manage to post something for Rice N Dine. We weren’t proud of that but hey, it’s a fresh year with a completely start!

I’m sure that as this 2017 unfolds, we are now loaded with new goals for the year and possibly New Years Resolutions all beautifully written in our brand new planners and timekeepers. January is so full of promises that goal-writing and strategy-planning seems inevitable. Is being fit and eating healthy part of your goals? Well, you are not alone! This 2017, we at Rice N Dine, seek to discover more yummy but delicious food and we aim to share all of those discovered ones with you! So, let’s start with the first one?

We have written about Chopsuey before in this post, but we’re writing about it again today because this recipe has variations with the previous one. For starters, we have included some baby corn in the ingredients. This provided our dish with the extra crunch and sweetness that the first recipe didn’t have. We also removed the pork from the ingredients, making this a purely vegetable meal.
