Easy Lo Mien

NOODLE BOWL! Up in your face. 
Oh how I love thee, noodle bowl.  So easy.  So tasty.  Pretty healthy to boot.  And vegan!  At least this one was. 

This one was quick, I was able to have it cooked up and on the table in around 20 minutes, which is good because I had a starving husband that was draped across a slip covered couch.  This one might not satisfy the meat eaters in your life but you could add some shrimp and it would absolutely still be delicious.  Brandon ate his bowl right up and then fixed himself a few ham/swiss/siracha roll ups.  PTL for deli meat.  

Let's check it out one more time.....
This one is, for sure, a keeper.  It tasted just like the lo mien from my favorite Chinese place in Greenwood but I would imagine with way fewer fat and calories.  I used quinoa noodles (a blend of quinoa and corn) but regular noodles would be fine, just fine. 

Get your noodle bowl on!!
