I added some lemon (as another user suggested), upped the amount of soy, added pepper and a pinch of salt, omitted cauliflower and used chopped broccoli cause I hate flaurrettes (sorry for spelling). I used 2 onions, 2 green peppers, 4 celery and some crushed red pepper. Pretty good. I served over egg noodles and added crispy Chinese noodles. Lots of changes I know, but thanks for the base recipe.

Ingredients don't match the steps. Noodles in the steps but not the ingredients. Mein means noodles so should be in the recipe. Right?
