Lo Mein

10 Mar

We have made so many variations of this recipe, but one thing has always remained the same. The sauce! It is creamy from the peanut butter, tangy from the toasted sesame dressing, and salty from the soy sauce! Holy perfectness!

I only had red peppers on hand the night that I made this, but really you could add any combination of veggies. Just chop, dice, and throw it in the skillet. The next time I make this I want to try shredded carrots, snap peas, and edamame. A true asian dish.

Zach’s dish: which of course included chicken. Don’t want to deprive him of his meat.

My dish: topped with slivered almonds. A nice little crunch!

Chicken or Veggie Lo Mein

1/2 pound spaghetti, cooked

1/4 cup Kraft Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 peppers, sliced

1/2 cup reduced sodium chicken or vegetable broth

1 tablespoon peanut butter

1/4 cup soy sauce

2 tablespoons chopped cilantro

In a large non-stick skillet, heat the dressing, broth, and peanut butter over medium heat. Add garlic and peppers. Cook for about five minutes or until desired softness is reached. Add cooked spaghetti. Stir in soy sauce. Mix until evenly combined. Spoon onto platter or plates and top with chopped cilantro.
