This was a freezer meal and it was completely ready to go, with the exception of the lo mein/spaghetti noodles to serve it over. But, I can’t find it! It’s been eaten by my freezer. So, I altered the “chicken” fried rice fixins to suit the lo mein recipe. Here’s what came of that experiment.
Adapted from Chicken Chow Mein.
2-3 C “chicken” cubes
2 C veggie broth
1 carrot, sliced
1/2 C snow peas
1 C shredded cabbage
1 diced red pepper
1 4 oz can of sliced mushrooms (or fresh mushrooms)
1 can water chesnuts
1 can baby corn (I used half the can)
1 can bamboo shoots
Sesame Seed Oil
House Seasoning, to taste
Chow mein noodles, lo mein (or spaghetti) noodles or white rice
Yummy! There was a moment when I thought this turned out poorly, but it ended up fine after I stirred it up (there were a few pockets of seasoning when I thawed out the “fixins” that were intended to go into the fried rice). This was good. Much better than other “chicken” lo mein experiments I’ve tried. Our family loves lo mein, so this is a great addition to our recipe repertoire.
