Frequently Asked Questions
Difference Between Lo Mein and Chow Mein

Lo Mein is soft, slightly wet, with every strand of the noodles coated with the sauce.
The noodles are mixed and tossed with the sauce and not stir-fried.
Chow mein is stir-fried egg noodles. Click here for Chow Mein vs Lo Mein.
Is this Recipe Vegan?
Even though this recipe is made with veggies, it’s not vegan because the noodles are egg noodles.
If you want to turn this into a vegan dish, you may use vegan noodles or Soba noodles.
Can I Add Tofu to the Noodles?
Yes, you can. For the best results, please use firm tofu.
Can I Use Spaghetti?
You can find dried egg noodles in the international aisle of regular food stores or supermarkets. I recommend Simply Asia Chinese Style Lo Mein Noodles.
However, spaghetti is a good substitute if you can’t find dried egg noodles.
For the best results, get fresh egg noodles or lo mein noodles from Chinese or Asian food stores.
