agassifan crockpot chop suey (lower sodium)

Submitted by: AGASSIFAN

Introduction

This is a lower sodium recipe, if you are not worried about salt, add an envelope of onion soup mix (or 4 bullion cubes) when you put everything in the crockpot.

This can use any protein you want (I used shrimp), OR go totally vegetarian, use tofu if you want.

If using raw meat. cut it in bite sized pieces and put it in the bottom of the crockpot, then put veggies on top. I used raw shrimp and did not want to over cook them, so I added the shrimp one hour before I was going to serve the chop suey. If you are using pre-cooked (leftover meat), add to the crockpot one hour before serving time.

I used corn starch to thicken the "gravy" (1 TBSP to 1 cup of water), but you do NOT have to do this step (cornstarch is factored into the nutritional totals).

Serve over rice or chop suey noodles....(not factored into nutritional counts).

Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    4 Cups sliced celery
    2 LBS frozen asian stir fry veggies
    12 OZ frozen sugar snap peas
    4 Cups water
    2 TBSP molasses
    1/2 Cup low sodium soy sauce
    1 LB frozen medium shrimp (deveined & peeled)
    4 TBSP corn starch

Tips

I like adding fresh chopped ginger to this recipe (couple of tablespoons full), but traditional chop suey doesn't use spicy ingredients.


Directions

1) If using raw meat, cut into bite sized pieces and pkace in bottom of crockpot. If using shrimp or pre-cooked meat, add to crockpot one hour before serving.

2) Add veggies, molasses, soy sauce and water to crockpot. (If not worried about salt, add bulliion or envelope of onion soup mix).

3) Cook on high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-8 hours.

4) Mix cornstarch with enough water to make a loose paste and mix into crockpot to thicken sauce (let cook for another 1/2 hour...cornstarch does not fully thicken until it boils).

5) Serve over cooked rice or asian noodles (not factored into recipe nutritional totals).

Serving Size: 10 (1.5 cup) servings
