Broccoli Slaw Lo Mein

Teresa Jacobson


My husband loves chicken lo mein from our favorite Chinese restaurant but he had to become a vegetarian for health reasons and that was no longer an option. Since then I've been trying to find a way to mimic that for him only veggie style. He loves this version and has said many times he would much rather have this than even his old favorite! Even if you're not a vegetarian, you could easily add some cooked chicken if you so desired. Honestly, I don't think you'll miss the meat this is so full of flavor!
(You can find shredded broccoli slaw in the bagged lettuce area of your grocery store. Try to get the kind that does not have the red cabbage in it. I like cabbage but the red cabbage really adds a bitter flavor. I've seen varying size bags so I just add whatever is in the bag.)
