I have to add this b/c we eat it CONSTANTLY. Ok, not that often b/c of the freakin' sodium, but the kids ask for it twice a week easily and I hate saying no. But it is SOO good. And really easy to make.

Recipe Ingredients for Home Made Lo Mein

6 oz (2 packages) Ramen Noodles, throw out the seasoning
1 large onion, coarsely chopped
1 large green pepper, coarsely chopped
1 large tomato, de-seeded and chopped coarsely
10 medium baby carrots, cut in quarters long-ways
4 oz (appx 1/2 a package) Morningstar Farms Meal Starters Chik'n Strips
1 package Oriental Stir-Fry Mix
1/2 cup of water

Recipe Directions for Home Made Lo Mein

  1. Cook the noodles accordingly. (boil for 3 minutes and drain) Set aside.

  2. After chopping up all of your veggies, drizzle a small amount of olive oil into a hot pan and throw them all in there! Cook until just tender. The carrots will take a little longer, but they can be a little firmer and still taste fantastic.

  3. Then add the chik'n strips and just cook until warm.

  4. Throw the noodles in the pan and stir.

  5. Make the sauce according to package directions and quickly add to the noodle-veggie mixture.

  6. Heat until well mixed and serve!

  7. It's wonderful to throw a handful of sesame seeds on top. We also occasionally add a teensy bit of that super hot red chili sauce you can get at Chinese restaurants.

  8. Perfecto!
