Vegetarian Lo-Mein

If you are missing your weekly Chinese Food Take out fix – here is a really scrumptious alternative sans the beef or chicken. I make this all the time and usually serve some egg drop soup, and some fish potstickers along with it.

This is another great WOK recipe – and because you are making it at home – much healthier than the version you get at the store.

Don’t worry if you do not have hoisin sauce you can  use a sweet teriyaki  instead. (can get in any kosher supermarket – brands like mikee’s and kedem both make)

Make this for dinner tonight and have Asian Night  – have some fun and buy a few $.50 Chinese containers in Michaels, serve with a set of chopsticks. As kids my mother let us sit on the floor with pillows and eat Chinese style!

Make it Asian night!
