    I changed this to a vegetarian version by substituting a soy meat such as mock duck, and using McKay's Chicken seasoning.

    My family loved this recipe. I actually used a bag of frozen California mix (carrots, brocolli, cauliflower) instead of just cauliflower, and also used some frozen leftover pork roast from another recipe I had made. I cut down on the chili powder to about 1/4 t. and ginger to 1/2 t. I will definately make it again!
