This very easy to make chow mein recipe is one of my most requested meals that I make at home! It’s packed with veggies and has so much flavor in every bite. Learn how to make chow mein that literally tastes better than Panda Express + it’s mom approved and that’s what counts!
As many of you already know, I’m busy working during the day and when it’s time to cook, I don’t always have 2-3 hours. Most of the time, it’s already 6-7pm, it’s getting late and I’m starving. Your girl needs a fast fix, so one of the dishes I resort to making is chow mein and this version is pretty quick to make and it’s got some veggies– delicious & healthy! If you’re local to San Diego, I buy a lot of my noodles from 99 Ranch Market.
- 1 yellow onion
- bean sprouts (2 handfuls)
- 3 stalks of celery chopped
