Vegan Lo Mein Noodles Recipe

Lo Mein Noodles 1

Lo Mein is a Chinese dish with wheat flour noodles and vegetables. The name comes from the Cantonese word for “stirred noodles”. You can find it at almost any Asian Style takeout place, but making it your own is really easy and has the advantage of being super cheap and customizable to your own likings!

Instead of meat we’re using seitan marinated in soy sauce. I think this is the perfect substitute for meat in this meal,  since seitan has a consistency and texture really similar to chicken. A lot of chinese takeout places add monosodium glutamate to their dishes – In my opinion this is already really flavorful enough, but if you want to, just add the MSG to the marinade.

Unlike most of the dishes you can buy outside this is actually really healthy -One serving contains amazing 31g Protein, is reasonably low on fat (9.1g) and has 34g of carbs. This makes this meal a perfect lunch or pre workout meal.
