    If you follow my blog at all you will know that I love to make takeout inspired recipes often. I test and test them to ensure I am coming up with the healthiest and best version for my readers. 

    I used to spend a lot of money on takeout, now I just make it at home. Pretty much every other day, depending on how I’m feeling. Asian cuisine has to be one of my favorites, however I do love Indian and other cuisines nearly as much.

    What I like about making Chow Mein at home is that I can remove the msgs that are in most takeout dishes, while saving a ton of money cooking them at home. 


    Not if you put Oyster sauce in it, if you want you can use Hoisin instead then it would be.

    However this recipe is 100% vegetarian as it is made with just Mushrooms and Chinese bok choy. 

    Trust me, you won’t miss the meat with this one. It’s so satisfying, you’ll be craving it time and time again.

    However if you want to add meat, go ahead and pick up some fast fry beef or chicken and saute that right along side the mushrooms.

    Once you learn to make this simple chow mein dish, you will be making it more often Guaranteed!

    I’m the type of lady that has to try every chow mein dish whenever we go to the chinese restaurants. I do this to compare really, just kidding.

    Well kinda, I mean some restaurants do it right and others so wrong. Right? It’s not always easy to find a good chow mein these days. 

    But with my recipe it’s foolproof, if you follow it to a tea you will be in Chow Mein Heaven!


    • Start by boiling the chow mein noodles, then strain and set aside. The brand I like to use can be seen below, it is very low in sodium!

    • Next, fry the chow mein noodles in a little bit of vegetable oil. 
    • In a separate pan, fry the mushrooms and bok choy till soft.
    • Make the sauce and add the mushrooms and bok choy to the noodles.
    • Pour in the sauce and add some sesame seed oil and saute for a few minutes till everything is combined and hot.
    • Serve and enjoy!

    The broccoli is tossed together in the most delicious asian inspired sauce. And the chow mein noodles are fried just a bit to give it the perfect amount of cripsyness.

    The hardest part about making homemade chow mein is “chopping those vegetables”.

    Once you have that part done, the rest comes together in a snap.
