Serves / Yields

6 servings

Preparation Instructions

Heat the peanut oil in a saucepan or wok until hot. Saute onion, ginger, and garlic until fragrant. Add the next 8 ingredients and heat until the liquid starts to boil.

Add vegetarian ground burger and greens. Bring back to a boil, turn the heat down and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated.

Turn the heat off and stir in cream cheese and heavy cream. Let the gravy sit to absorb and thicken.

Ladle over rice, pasta, or noodles and garnish with chopped chives or scallion.

Helpful Hints

If you prefer a non-vegetarian dish, you can substitute the vegetarian ground burger for ground beef or turkey. Adjust times accordingly, to make sure meat is fully cooked.
