Vegetable Chow Mein (Authentic Chinese Food 3.0)

Back again with more Chinese food!

Authentic Chinese Food

This was actually my favourite recipe of them all. I loved the thick, fresh egg noodles and all the vegetables. It had great flavour and (like all the dishes) was even better the next day as leftovers!

You could easily add chicken or any protein to this dish if you wanted. I liked that we had a single dish without meat, though.
