As a kid my Mom and I used to both race for the last bit of lo mein any time we got Chinese food. The weird thing, we were racing to the fridge the morning after, wanting the leftover lo mein for breakfast. My whole family loves leftovers for breakfast so this was no surprise, but since we only got Chinese food every once in awhile, lo mein was a prized leftover.
Thinking about those memories over the weekend, I decided it was time to make my own homemade, healthier lo mein. I had a bunch of spinach and mushrooms in the fridge I wanted to use, so I decided to incorporate those as the main veggies. You could definitely substitute in more typical lo mein veggies if you prefer. Then all you need is a simple lo mein sauce and dinner is ready in about 15 minutes. And just in case you're wondering, the leftovers are delicious, especially for breakfast.
