  2. Ooooo, love this! I’ve redone many recipes since watching the ‘China Study’ documentary. I had to separate my recipes into different folders, VEGAN/VEGETARIAN, TRADITIONAL, and BUNK HOUSE. Bunk house contains recipes I still use when asked to cook for Ranches and trail ride adventures. This one goes into my vegan one 🙂 Thanks lady, er.. Miss. Ma’am, Mrs, Missus…what the heck are women called by now? LOL !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Lol that makes so much sense! That’s a good way to keep them organized. I’ve found the same, that not all my recipes can be “veganized” well, or at least I haven’t perfected a version for every one.
      I’m waiting for my son to see what I did to this recipe….Ohhhhhhh the chagrin that will come from him….. But I’ll still make the other for him when he wants it 😉

  5. This recipe looks so tasty. My brother-in-law is dating a vegan. So, I’m trying to learn some really tasty vegan dishes for when she comes to visit. Naturally, I was drawn to the “Best Lo Mein Ever!” I can’t wait to try this recipe out. It looks simple and fast to make but still really tasty.
