Edamame Lo Mein

This is not the greasy Lo Mein of your favorite Chinese take-out, it tastes even better. Plus you get plenty of nutrients with the addition of edamame, a great vegetarian protein source. Make it a Meal: Fruit sorbet and sesame cookies are a perfect ending.

This is a wonderful lo mein recipe, simple and versatile (two things I appreciate in a recipe). Been making it since it first appeared in the magazine years ago. I do add extras to it, such as garlic, ginger, sliced white onion, and cabbage, and sometimes sub a yellow bell pepper for one of the red ones for added color. This is super delicious, both hot and cold, especially with some sriracha sauce for an extra kick of heat!! Heck, I'm making it tonight for lunch at work tomorrow!! :-)

Great recipe for Lo mein. I love Asian noodle. Have you tried Brown rice noodle ? Gluten free / low sodium. So 100 percent good for your health. Found this one from a company called star anise foods. It's a Pho Noodle kit. But you can use that noodle in any dish you like like salad or stir fried. Perfect for breakfast also dinner or lunch. Must try it !

Was good but salty. Daughter said it was missing something and would taste better with some pork or chicken added to it to make it more of a meal.

Faux-Mein!!! My whole family LOVED this recipe and scarfed it down! I did have to substitute scallions for red onion but I cooked it with some ground turkey & soy separately and added it just before the sauce. The sauce MAKES this dish - it's fantastic!!! I also added a little cabbage I had on hand; and for color (and to save a dollar) I sub'd one of the red bell peppers for a green one. My husband also doesn't care for cooked carrots, so I added a can of bean sprouts instead. Just DELISH!!! I can see adding whatever crispy veggies we have on hand - but the noodles, edamame, and sauce are the KEYS to the success of this "faux-mein!"
