Lo Mein, a traditional Chinese dish has become also an American favorite. You can find it in almost any Chinese restaurant in the US and often is offered with the addition of meats or seafood.
This is such an easy recipe to make at home (you can always exchange for local, seasonal vegetables) and can feed a family of four for only a few bucks! It is also a cool lunch box item (remember to get your reusable chopsticks at our shop in Miami Shores!)
To make this at home: precook your noodles, saute your aromatics and veggies and for a final touch, brown the noodles and toss in the sauce. It doesn't get any easier than!
Why use our recipe? It is full of antioxidants and vitamins from the veggies and aromatics, lower in salt, has no sugar added, is vegetarian and gluten free! Portion it out in reusable containers for the whole family and refrigerate until lunch time - Then, warm up and enjoy!As vegetarians(or not), we need to add protein to our bodies. The following recipe is "pumped" with plant-based proteins from beans, seeds and oats. As a vegetarian, this is one of my to go recipes when I want a burger (you don't need to be vegetarian in order to savor this baby!). At The Real Food Academy, we have also made this recipe with hundreds of kids and just after we got their seal of approval (kids can be harsh recipe judges) we decided on going public with it! TIP: Serve it with our Sweet and Tangy Coleslaw with Apples and top it with avocado slices and sprouts. Next time you have a gathering your guest will be impressed with your new plant-based burger! This recipe is been done in our cooking class as Turkey Burgers and Meatballs, always a hit! They are super tasty and super delicious! You won't ever make any other recipe after this! Definitely a keeper. This is a quick recipe that you can play with by adding 1 or 2 cups of vegetables instead of the chicken. Combine sprouts, cabbage, snap peas right at the end with the mushrooms and other veggies. What would happen if you served Zucchini, Carrots and Quinoa to your kids? Maybe you'll find some resistance...I'll give you an idea - hide them in these sliders! Served on whole wheat slider buns, with or without cheese, your kids will keep asking for more. This recipe is super beneficial since it carries all of the antioxidants in the carrots, the quinoa and the tomato. By consuming antioxidants, you help your body to get rid of the free radicals that cause damage on your cells. So go ahead and have a slider!
