Healthy Recipe Tips and Suggestions

This dish is so easily customizable you can make it exactly as you like it. Are you vegetarian or vegan? This dish is for you. Maybe you would prefer meat? Add some! Here are some ideas of what you could include:
  • Add more veggies. Red bell pepper, snow peas, water chestnuts, spinach...pick your favorites and add them in Step 2 of the recipe.
  • Make it a meat lo mein. Add chicken, steak, turkey, salami, or pastrami. Make sure to fully cook your meat before adding it into the lo mein.
  • Salmon or kani lo main. Thankfully kosher cuisine is no stranger to using kani. This is the imitation crab meat that can be found at most kosher grocery stores. Kani tastes great mixed in with the other lo mein ingredients. Either raw or cooked salmon is also a nice flavorful addition. If you really want to try something different, taste our Brown Sugar Smoked Salmon in lo mein.
  • Use alternative proteins. Try eggs, tofu, or seitan to add pareve proteins.
