GOING meatless sometimes seems daunting. But if you really come to think about it, it should be easy, as long as you’ve got recipes of delicious meatless dishes on hand. The advocacy of Jolly, a leading brand of canned vegetables and fruits exclusively distributed by Fly Ace Corporation, is to share recipe ideas that will help consumers lead healthier lives by eating healthier one day at a time, or, rather, one day a week, for a start. One of the first recipes off its Meatless Mondays campaign, which designates Mondays as that special meatless day, is Chopsuey with Corn and Mushrooms.
Find it unusual to have corn in your chopsuey? Oh, but, yes, you can, and that’s what makes this recipe even more special.
