Lo Mein a la CCV

It's day 16 of VeganMoFo and I have somehow fallen behind in my attempt to have about 20 posts this month.  It's time to catch up! 

Not too long ago, Chocolate Covered Vegan made lo mein and I have not been able to stop thinking about it ever since.  I love asian cuisine, and this recipe looked so easy to make, I just had to give it a try.  I'm so glad I did because it is so delicious and nutritious ;)

I cooked up some brown rice spaghetti, and sauteed some sugar snap peas, yellow bell pepper, onion, mung bean sprouts and carrots in a spicy peanut sauce.  I wanted to add some protein to it so I added an Yves Chicken patty, sliced it into strips.  (One of these days I'll get around to making seitan.)  When it was all in the bowl I added a splash of Braggs.  Seriously, this is so easy to make.  Thanks for the inspiration, CCV!

Ooh I love your addition of the Yves chick'n patty. I don't think I've ever seen Yves chickn patties; I'll have to look out for 'em. And peanut sauce is one of my favorite sauces (due to the fact that it has "peanut butter" in the ingredients).

That looks great! Katie's lo mein has had me thinking about making it, too!
