Stir fry and lo mein are a great way to use up random fridge veggies. Some recipes ingredient list are long and complex. Others are simple and basic such as this Easy Lo Mein. I've made both the complex and simple versions and with exception to maybe a deeper flavor in the sauce, easy wins out again and again.
Lo mein egg noodles were replaced with standard 12 oz fettuccini noodles and button mushrooms replaced crimini and snap peas replaced snow peas. Spinach was omitted. Sauce quantities were doubled and ginger was increased to one teaspoon for extra heat.
Scaled for Likability: Great
I might have found a new simple sauce recipe for all future stir fry and lo mein meals. It was not overly salty, not excessively sweet, and had just enough sticky to adhere to the noodles and veggies. Heat levels were noticeable but more of as an undertone than a lip burner. The only thing missing was sliced green onions. How this ingredient escaped the list amazed me. Green onions are as quintessential as soy sauce. Next time.
