Before going gluten-free, big A and I loved swinging by our favorite Chinese food place and grabbing some egg rolls and lo mein every once in awhile. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss it and, finally, after over 2 years, I’m able to dig into a delicious plateful.

I was so surprised at how incredibly easy lo mein is to throw together, and this will definitely be a dinner making its appearance on our table again soon.

For the noodles, you can really use your favorite brand of gluten-free spaghetti noodles. I used these, and they turned out wonderfully. I would really recommend using a rice based pasta. Corn and quinoa tend to be a little too mushy for my liking.
