Easy tofu lo mein recipe ready in minutes!
One of my favorite things to eat growing up was lo mein.
While I loved other Chinese takeout, I would often order a container of lo mein to indulge in on Sundays.
I still remember just how much lo mein could fit in a tiny takeout container and it felt like so much food (which I loved for leftovers!)
Today I’m sharing a way to make easy tofu lo mein at home!
With me being a vegetarian and Robbie being mostly one (with the exception of occasional seafood), I tend to put a little more effort into making our dinners both filling and packed full of protein.
My crazy husband is not only a hard working landscaper who often walks 20k – 30k steps in a day, but he also runs for fun.
Needless to say we eat a lot of food in our house!
We live a busy active lifestyle and that’s why I used Barilla ProteinPLUS Spaghetti in this lo mein recipe!
I love that every serving has 17g of protein to help me stay full and fueled.
This spaghetti is great in lo mein as it is perfectly sized.
Added bonus that is is mega packed full of protein in every serving!
I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious this was!
I was so full after a serving of lo mein, more so than any takeout I have had before.
How to make tofu lo mein:
Fresh sugar snap peas and mushrooms are perfect in this lo mein recipe, but feel free to throw in whatever veggies you have on hand.
Carrots and green onions would also be a great addition!
This recipe is super simple and full of flavor.
I never make an oriental recipe without loads of fresh ginger and garlic.
That alone will add a whole new level of deliciousness to the dish!
No need to worry about a fancy lo mein sauce, as I simply used a combination of sesame oil and soy sauce.
Just add to taste and toss.
It’s really that simple!
I picked up my Barilla ProteinPLUS at Kroger.
This makes a huge amount and is perfect for leftovers!
