Lo Mein is made with wheat flour noodles and some animal protein, but we’ve used mushrooms and rice noodles to make a vegan, gluten-free version.
Asian-style dishes are so popular on the blog and we love them so much. Asian food is my second favorite food actually, just after Italian.
I know Asian food is not a cuisine, but I haven’t tried a single Asian dish that I didn’t like, it doesn’t matter if it was Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, etc. All Asian cuisines are awesome! We want to travel to Asia next year and enjoy the place and of course the food.
Traditional Lo Mein is a Chinese dish, which is made with wheat flour noodles, veggies and some animal protein. To make a vegan and gluten-free version, we used mushrooms and rice Vermicelli noodles, but feel free to use any kind of pasta you like.
