Lo Mein Noodles

Recipe of the  week 🙂

It’s healthy, tasty, and very easy to make. This is just a really simple, versatile noodle dish that can be a staple vegetarian meal for vegetarians.

It is a great accompaniment to any Asian meal. Today we’re going to make a quick vegetable lo mein. It is packed with veggies and pretty accommodating with stuff you can get at most grocery stores.

It takes less than 30 minutes to make. Use whatever veggies you have at hand or pick your own veggies. I used cauliflower florets, carrots, broccoli florets, red bell pepper, snow peas, zucchini and baby corn.

So let’s get cooking!
