Easy Chow Mein Recipe
We have here an Easy Chow Mein Recipe that makes putting this dish together, even easier than chow mein already is. So get the family together, and make it as a group to have some fun with a dish that does not take much time or skill to prepare, but packs big flavor punch as well as great nutrition (but you do not have to tell the kids you are making something that is good for them). Be sure to use the authentic ingredients that are listed for this Easy Chow Mein Recipe as they contribute great flavor and will make you feel like you have made something that is truly from the East. As well, these flavors are fantastic.
This easy chow mein recipe contains two parts, a sauce, and the main dish. The main dish is a vegetarian one, but you could easily add chicken, shrimp or beef (sliced very thin) to this chow mein recipe. You could get some help in the dicing of all the veggies. This includes carrots and celery as well as mushrooms. Be sure to chop the carrots and celery on the diagonal, the traditional shape that is usually (or at least, often) found in an easy chow mein recipe. This dish is also chock full of goodness. Veggies such as celery and carrots bring plenty of vitamins and minerals as well as other nutrients. The big contributor to flavor as well as nutrients lies with the garlic. Be sure to let it sit a moment before you add it to heat so that the alliinase, a very important anti-oxidant can begin to go to work before being neutralized by the heat of the pan.
Various oils are recommended as great for this dish, but you might want to consider grape seed oil. Did you know that grape seed oil is made from green grapes? As such, grape seed oil contains only 40 calories in one tablespoon, much less than in a tablespoon of melted butter (just as one comparison). Also, grape seed oil does not contain any protein or carbohydrates (like sugar). And a tablespoon of this oil contains only about 13.5 grams of total fat, and these fats are mainly polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats, the best kind you could consume. That is because they are loaded with omega six fatty acids. As well, recent research suggests that grape seed oil helps improve inflammation as may lower insulin resistance in people who are overweight. So enjoy this great dish, and the authentic flavor an easy chow mein recipe has to offer.
