Chowmein

chowmein3

A complete meal! A perfect combination of all nutrients contributed by the vegetables and starch from the noodles.

Chow mein is a style of preparing noodles separately and then topping them with a choice of ingredients. Here we have used carrots, capsicum and cabbage.

Though these I have made using spaghetti rather then normal noodles. You can alter it as per choice.

Serves 2.
