Vegetable A La King

Vegetable A La King with Red and Yellow Peppers, Mushrooms, and Soymilk on Brown Rice Noodles

Vegetable A La King

A favorite easy and fairly low fat dish of mine, this vegan version of Chicken a la king can be made with various vegetables. In this version, I pair red and yellow Bell peppers with mushrooms and a soymilk roux. You can add sautéed tofu or, if you are not gluten free, vegan chicken. Other additions might include a green vegetable (asparagus is particularly good here).

If you want to go really low fat, you can stir the flour in the cooked vegetables and add rice milk or almond milk or even just water.
