This is my version of chow mein. I used the produce that I had on hand,  but usually I like to toss in some baby bok choy and some broccoli. Also, to lower the sodium content, I try to use low-sodium bullion and soy sauce.


  • package of wheat noodles
  • 1 bullion cube in 1 cup water
  • 3 stalks celery, julienne cut
  • 2 carrots, grated
  • 1/8 cup low sodium soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tbs peanut oil
  • 1/2 bag of bean sprouts


Step 1

Boil noodles - follow instructions on the package you choose. Drain and set aside.

Step 2

In a large pan or wok, sautee onion, garlic, celery and carrots in peanut oil.

Step 3

Add broth and soy sauce, bring to a boil and turn down heat and let simmer for five minutes. Add noodles and bean sprouts, mix thoroughly. Let sit for a couple minutes and enjoy!
