HOW TO MAKE EASY LO MEIN

The easiest lo mein you will ever make in 15 minutes from start to finish. It is so much quicker, tastier and healthier than take-out!

Back when I had a day job, I had this boss who was obsessed with the lo mein from the restaurant across the street. She’d have me order it at least 3 times a week, and I would get so excited because she would always pass along a plate for me to share.

But since blogging became a full-time gig, I find myself longing for that lo mein almost daily.

Those long noodles chockfull of all those fresh veggies… How it was always so perfect with a side of potstickers. And general tso’s chicken. And monoglian beef… Sorry. I digress.
