One of my favorite things to do is make healthy Asian take-out style dishes at home. It's always what I crave after a long hard day but the restaurant versions pack a ton of extra sugar and oil usually. Mongolian beef is something I would normally make but since we have been trying to eat more meatless meals, I decided to try out a version with tempeh. Tempeh is a fermented soy product that is a bit nuttier than tofu with lots more texture. Sliced super thin it is a great stand in for beef in this recipe. You could also use tofu or a vegetarian "meat" substitute and you can always toss in some extra veggies.
