Lo mein

This is the first time I cook Lo Mein and it was great. It's also really simple & quick to do.

The other day I bought 1 pack of wide Lo Mein noodles, and followed a little the recipe that was on the back of the package. I added other vegetables that wasn't there, and added half water, half vegetable broth & a pinch of salt to boil, for the noodles for more flavor, but you can use only water and salt if you want to, if you don't have veggie broth in hand.

-water, or half water, half veggie broth [enough to cover the noodles]
- 1 package of wide Lo Mein noodles
-pinch of salt

-few tbsp peanut oil
-few tbsp olive oil or stir fry oil
-Red Bell Pepper, cut into strips
-Celery, cut small and finely, best
-Some of the Morningstar Farms chickn' style s strips, cut into small-medium cubes
-cayenne pepper powder
-onion powder
-a little more salt to taste
-ground black pepper
-garlic powder

Ok, now you're going to start boiling the noodles in the water with veggie broth [if using] and the pinch of salt for 5 minutes.
Cut the chickn' strips into cubes and season with the spices, black pepper & salt, to taste.
While boiling the noodles, saute the vegetables [you can use a wok or a big frying pan] and the seasoned strips in the oil for few minutes until ready.
When the noodles are done, add them to the wok or frying pan with the veggies and they're ready when lightly golden browned.
That's all.
