SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was amazing. Lo mein was my favorite in my pre-vegan days and its been so long since I've had it. I used broccoli instead of cauliflower and instead of crumbling tofu, I fried it with some general tao's sauce. Can't wait to make this again.

We LOVED this! I used all Braggs, but think next time I will do half Braggs and half soy sauce. I didn't have any onion (I was so mad!) but used red pepper, zucchini and summer squash. I also omitted tofu because mine was frozen and we forgot haha But it was fantastic, the sesame oil gives it a great flavor.

This was great! I made it for a family party, and everyone loved it! (Unfortunately, there weren't any leftovers for me :( )
