Anyone have a favorite Moo Goo Gai Pan Recipe?

Used to love moo goo Gai pan when I was younger and my dad made it. I think it was actually the first home made Chinese food I ever tasted, and definitely the first time I ever had snow peas.

Anyway, Ill take care of the vegetarian chicken substitute, just looking for a favorite recipe since my dad didn't leave me his.

I didn't use the Rice Vinegar as called for, also, I used
Shitake Mushrooms, `cuz that's what I had on hand ... but none
the less it was wonderful.

<edit: I forgot to say that I added fresh chopped Ginger last night, just `cuz I love Ginger .

I remember I was really young. ( 10 or younger). and my dad had gotten a wok cause he wanted to start making Chinese food at home. Obviously I had been to Chinese restaurants and eaten Chinese food, but up until that point, we ate basic everyday American or Americanized foods. I thought , even at this young age, that it was cool he was trying something exotic ( at that time it was). I never really heard of Bok choy, snow peas ... I remember in the Chinese restaurant, when we got won ton soup, we would fight over who would get the " Spinach". in the soup, now knowing it was likely Bok Choy or another Asian green. I do owe it to my dad for my culinary curiosity. Sundays were always his cooking experimental day, whether it was Chinese, stuffed grape leaves, artichokes ( or stuffed artichokes)... At this time, most people ( at least where I lived) had never heard of this or tried it. Now 40 + years later, I have the same culinary curiosity as he did. I dont travel abroad much ( or at all), but when its comes to cooking, I travel the world. Thanks dad!!

My Dad also was a food adventurer.
I am eternally grateful that he got us to try
different foods, but not in a forceful way.

My Mother on the other hand would MAKE us
kids eat something even after trying it,
and we couldn't get down from the table
until we finished our dinner.
"There's starving children in China, EAT IT!"
My Sister one night got up from the table,
wrapped her plate up and handed it to Mom,
"Here, send this to them!"

Another award winning statement from my Mother:
Charcoal is good for your teeth...
I think I've made mention that my Mother can't cook!
