I used to be terrified to make any kind of Asian dish. Each time I tried the food turned out terrible and tasted nothing like the dishes at my favorite local restaurants. Turns out the problem wasn’t necessarily my cooking, I just wasn’t choosing the right recipes. After lots of trial and error however I’ve got a handful of delicious dishes including this quick and easy vegetable lo mein which is the newest one I’ve added in to the rotation.
