I like stir fry dishes because you can throw in a lot of veggies and switch it up according to what you have available in your fridge. I don’t make chinese food often. 2 months ago, I walked down the grocery aisle and saw a box of lo mein, I thought, “why not?!” Well, 2 months later and I decided to pick up the box and actually make lo mein. I tend to make the same foods over and over again. I find comfort in dishes I know I’ll always like and so I don’t need to put much brain power into making something new. Once in a while, I like to make something new like this to switch it up a bit!

As a child, my mom made a lot of stir fry dishes like lo mein, chow mein, veggies with meat and vegetarian dishes. However, I’ve never made a stir fry noodle dish like this in FOREVER. It was actually my second time making lo mein. My first time was actually at work earlier this year. Since then, I was inspired to pick up my chinese tastebuds again.

I cooked the lo mein, veggies and chicken separately. The sauce only consists of 5 ingredients. That’s it? Yes, that’s it and it’s still very flavorful!

In the end, you throw everything into a large wok or big pot. Toss with the sesame aminos sauce and call it a meal!

Topped with sesame seeds and a garnish of green onions. Sesame seeds have a nutty profile and a great source of fats, copper and manganese! I use them on top of a lot of my dishes… even if they’re not chinese dishes!
