Vegetable Faux Mein

This recipe was created by Karen Wiens on 12/13/14.

Here’s another take on vegetable lo mein we call “faux mein” since we use whole wheat spaghetti instead of Asian noodles. Not a single hard to find ingredient in this one. You can find everything you need at a regular grocery store. We all love this, it’s super easy and it’s really good left over – even cold!
