Fake Out Take Out- Lo Mein

Foody Schmoody


I don't get take out very often, but when I do, it's almost ALWAYS chinese. It's certainly my weak spot. The down side is, I don't actually know what is going into this delicious food. Sometimes I don't want to know :-).

Okay so who knew it was this easy to recreate something that tastes like it came from a take out carton and certainly is healthier.

I used vegetables that I had in my house already but you could mix it up with using snow peas, cabbage, beans, peppers and/or broccoli.

I served this with my orange chicken.
