Bento Recipe: Lo Mein Noodles


Back to the
or the


Lo mein noodles are... well, another kind of noodle you see a lot. The ones I get in restaurants are round like spaghetti, but the ones I find in stores are wide and flat. Hmm.

Just about the simplest way to cook these is to boil them per the directions on the package, drain them, then stir-fry them for a few minutes in a bit of oil with some yakisoba sauce. I use just enough sauce to darken the noodles. You can leave out the oil if you want, and just cook the noodles in the yakisoba sauce over low heat. They'll be fine if you eat them right then. However, if you pack this in your bento the noodles will become very sticky and clumpy!
