2. Chop suey
This is a classic of all Eastern food lovers, but few people know that the chop suey has actually been developed as an oversea Chinese dish, which means that it is the result of the combination of traditional Chinese recipes and cooking methods with the new things the Chinese learned when they encountered other cultures. So you can see it as a symbol of people coming together to develop something new that works for everybody despite their cultural background.
The standard chop suey recipe has eggs and meat but nobody says you can’t just have a veggie-only chop suey. Ideally, you would saute the vegetables in a wok. The process is quick: add onion, celery, bean sprouts and mushrooms for the classic recipe, and season with soy sauce, cornstarch and white sugar. Some like it spicy, so if you are one of those, add a pinch of black pepper.
