Country-fried chow mein


Frankly, I’m pretty bad at cooking Chinese food. I often wonder if one doesn’t need to be born Chinese to do it properly. But, if you’ve got a pile of home-grown mung bean sprouts, what are you gonna do?

It’s the noodles that make the chow mein. I have no idea where one might get proper chow mein noodles around here. But whole wheat linguini will do in a pinch. After the linguini has been cooked, brown the noodles lightly in an oiled pan and add some soy sauce, then add the vegetables and stir-fry.

You do make your own sprouts, don’t you?

Mushrooms, onions, garlic, and celery — easy winter vegetables

You know you like ’em fried.

    Hi David

    I mentioned your recipes to my daughter. She’s going to check them out and hopefully adopt a few. I can’t do it yet… though the Quiche looks really good. I’ve always loved Quiche, except for an Onion Quiche…blah. I’m hopeful my wife will do your CFCM 🙂
