Hello! Hello!

This weekend was MUCH better than the last one.  The Hubs and I finally got our night out and the babies stayed well.  We needed a good weekend and we got one.

Today it’s back to the grind and that means back to cooking some healthy weekday dinners.  I thought I’d share a new idea with you today… a Healthy Vegetarian Lo Mein recipe.  Takeout is great, but my version will take you about the same amount of time AND is packed with so much more goodness.  It has a rainbow of vegetables and healthy vegetarian protein including eggs, whole grain pasta, and edamame.  Plus this pretty dish is cooked in JUST ONE PAN!  Can I get three cheers for that?

This Healthy Vegetarian Lo Mein recipe could not be easier!  You start with your favorite whole grain spaghetti (ALDI has a fabulous one!) and add super easy pre-cut frozen broccoli, carrots and edamame to pasta water. ,

Next you pull the spaghetti, brcooli and edamame out of the pot and set aside.  In the SAME pot, you then cook more colorful veggies like purple cabbage and onion in garlic and fresh ginger.  Next, you scramble an egg and toss it all together with soy sauce.

It’s just a couple easy steps to get a flavor and veggie packed homemade version of Healthy Vegetarian Lo Mein recipe.  It’s free of whatever strange things they put in a lot of Chinese takeout and filled with lots of flavors.

    This look so easy! I would have thought lo mein would be way more difficult to make at home.
