I'm a huge fan of takeout — I would eat it for every meal if I could. But on a college student's budget it just isn't realistic to have it often.
This version of takeout, though, is both half the calories and half the price of your usual go-to. This meal serves 3, so prep it for the week or serve your friends while watching a movie one Friday night.

Don't be afraid to adjust this recipe. If you want a different meat or veggie swap them. If you want more soy sauce add it. Do whatever you want to make this recipe your own.
