|This is really not new information, but most Asian food is dairy free. It is one of my favorites for that reason and the ease of preparation! Lately we have had quite a few bean sprouts growing here. We have discovered that we really like growing the mung bean sprouts and we use them in almost everything...almost. A couple of weeks ago (I know, we did this quite a while ago), the illustrator was making his famous pork fried rice for the boys and I decided to try something different. I had to confess to the illustrator that I am not really a huge fan of fried rice. I know, the shame. I just prefer lots of vegetables over filling up on greasy rice. Anyway, so I found this great recipe to use some of our mung bean sprouts and I loved it. I, of course, took out some of the oil, but for the most part, I followed the recipe. I would like to try it with tofu some time instead of the egg. I think that would be a great substitution for vegans!
