We really like this at our house. It's nice to get away from meat once in awhile and all the flavors involved in this Lo Mein don't make you miss a thing. Simple and Delicious!

This is an awesome base recipe! Any chef can play with this and make it their own. My veggies were onion, cabbage, bok choy and bean sprouts. I also add some hot chili sauce b/c we like extra serious spice. I followed the instructions and was wondering... What happened to the 1 tbls. soy sauce listed under ginger? I just added that to my veggies before removing them. Topped with sesame seeds. Thanks for posting this gem!

Made this for 2013 Zaar Cookbook Tag and I am so glad I did. DH and I really enjoyed this. I followed the instructions except for adding a few more vegies (sugar snap peas, slivered carrots and part of zucchini). Will be making this again. Thank you for posting.

My family loved this; my husband especially. I made a few changes. I doubled the recipe and used 1 head of bok choy for the cabbage. I also ditched the mushrooms and added a can each of sliced water chestnuts, baby corn and bamboo shoots and 1 cup of peas and carrots. I also used vegetable broth in place of the chicken broth to keep this vegetarian. No pepper flakes and used splenda for the sugar. I wanted the sauce to thicken so it would coat the pasta better so I added some corn starch. I cooked the pasta fresh so I stir fryed everything and then added the pasta to the pan with the veggies and then added the sauce. This was a very beautiful dish; light and tasty; perfect for summer, and easy to make. I'll make this again; thanks for posting.
