This is a very simple recipe that I literally threw together in less than 10 minutes. This tastes like the filling of egg rolls but without the wrappers since they are 16 carbs per wrapper. If you like Chinese food I think you will like this one too. (Yes Donna (sister) you can leave out the mushrooms. Although your husband will love them in there.)
I bought Ginger Paste for the first time and I really do love it now. I can see me using this quite often instead of ground ginger in recipes.
