Cheat’n Chow Mein
There has been a lot of talk about zucchini pasta on food shows and blogs lately. It is a great way to cut carbs and get your vegetable servings at the same time. I purchased a spiral vegetable slicer, however there are other ways that you can create vegetable strands. Check out this post on Food 52.
My sister told me about the “pasta” in a chow mein recipe that was discussed on an episode of The Doctors television show. She loved the dish.
I served it as a side to grilled chicken. My great nephew Abraham was a willing hand model for this photo.
I made a slight adaptation to the recipe when I substituted zucchini noodles for the sweet potato noodles.
