Make

  1. Heat a wok with first part of oil over medium-high heat. Add tofu and saute until tofu is lightly browned on all sides, 5 to 6 minutes. Season with some salt and pepper and cook for 1 minute more. Set tofu aside and return pan to heat.
  2. Add second part of oil to wok and then mushrooms, snow peas, and carrots. Saute until starting to turn tender, 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add tofu back to wok along with sauce and bring to a simmer. Simmer until sauce bubbles and thickens, ~2 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and add noodles. Toss everything to combine.
  5. Top lo mein with lemon juice and cilantro. Serve with some hot sauce if you’d like. Enjoy!

really good, but could have used a bit more pop of flavor, it was a little bland.

So quick and easy. Really nice use of leftover meatballs. Flavor didn’t wow me, but was pretty good.

Delicious “healthy” lo mein Used snap peas instead of snow, rice noodles because it’s what I had, and added cashews. Great left overs.
