Ants Crawling Up Trees

 

This is a dish that was a favorite at our local Chineses eatery. I used to make it with ground turkey (before I saw the light) and have found that TVP works just as well. It's hot and spicy.delicious and just a little different.

Substituted ground turkey for the tvp, fantastic dish. I'm glad that I saw the light. Not so much spice is needed to disguise the flavor though.
