    Chow Mein - Comfy Belly

    Chow mein is a one pan (or wok) meal that’s quick and easy to make, and this one is loaded with veggies, so I’m happy!

    This version of chow mein uses carrot and zucchini as “noodles”, and you can use just about any vegetable that can be peeled or spiraled into noodles. I made this dish a month ago or so when my older son was home, and he was amazed at how much it tasted just like “real” noodles.

    I happily eat veggie stir-fries on their own, but I much prefer a protein topping with this recipe, usually stir-fried or grilled shrimp for me, and stir-fried shredded pork and chicken blend in well also. Another great option is adding a fried egg on top, or a sliced or shredded fried egg.

      This looks really good. I can’t wait to be a little further on the SCD phase to try this one. I read that you use a Vitamix for a lot of recipes. Have you ever made the Vanilla Custard Sauce? I tried it subbing almond flour for the APF, but it didn’t work as well as I hoped. It didn’t thicken up very much. Have you tried it with coconut flour? Thanks.

        I love my Vitamix for really pulverizing stuff that I want to get smooth and creamy, but in some cases a food processor or regular blender is fine. It depends on the recipe. I have been thinking about a vanilla pudding or panna cotta recipe for the future 🙂
