In Chinese culture, Chow Mein noodles are one of the most used and most popular dishes. When I was in China, I tried this delicious dish many times and always liked it. But, after having eaten it many times, I was still not satisfied. I wish I could upgrade the dish anyhow and make it my way!
In Chinese, they called this crispy Chow Mein noodles. According to my opinion, they are crispy as well as good, but the main issue with this dish is that they tend to absorb too much oil and taste really bland. In fact, some people say that eating this dish will make you fat. But, when I first tasted this dish, I was really shocked at the taste. It was extremely bland.
The main difference between this traditional Chinese stir-fried noodles and the Chow Mein noodles is the use of egg in the stir-fried mixture. Usually, Chow Mein noodles are served cold. This can cause the egg to soak up the flavor and nutrients from the noodles. Therefore, the more you eat it, the less nutritious it becomes.
The next question that comes to my mind is that why would you want to upgrade to crispy Chow Mein noodles? Well, to start with, these noodles were very cheap. In fact, most restaurants sell them for just a few dollars.
Chow Mein Noodles – What If You Are A Vegetarian?
Secondly, if you are a vegetarian, the Chow Mein noodles are a great choice. While other stir-fried foods tend to be too oily, most of them have egg and dairy in them, which is very unhealthy for the body.
In addition, Chow Mein is also inexpensive. Since these noodles are already cooked and not fresh, there is no need to buy any extras; for example, the seasoning. Chow Mein is usually seasoned using salt and onions and soy sauce. It is a cheap dish to serve and yet they make a huge profit on it.
Another benefit of upgrading to crispy Chow Mein noodles is the fact that it is made from scratch. Unlike many other stir-fried dishes, the recipe is completely organic. There is no cooking oil added or any kind of preservatives added.
Lastly, Chow Mein noodles come in so many varieties that it is easy to prepare. You can make a big batch and then serve it over rice for breakfast or even for dinner. For example, you can make a batch of Chow Mein noodle soup for breakfast, a small batch for lunch and then a large batch for dinner.
What Else Should You Keep In Mind?
When it comes to taste, all you have to do is try Chow Mein noodles. Most people say that they are one of the tastiest stir-fried recipes there is. In fact, some restaurants even have their own Chow Mein restaurants. However, this dish may take a bit of effort and patience to prepare because of the extra time that is required in its preparation.
The basic Chow Mein noodle soup base consists of onion, garlic, soy sauce, chicken, carrots, celery and other vegetables. Then, you add any seasonings that you prefer. This can be anything from soy sauce, sesame oil, ginger, chicken bouillon and any other condiments that are used to enhance the flavor.
One thing you may want to keep in mind is that when it comes to adding seasonings, you must only add what you like. Some people prefer to use different seasoning depending on the season of the food that you are serving. For example, if you are serving Thai food, you may want to avoid onions and garlic.
On the other hand, a vegetarian Chow Mein meal may want to include onions and garlic. Some people even add fish to their noodle soups, but again, it is up to them. The benefits of upgrading to this stir-fried dish are that they are very healthy and can be prepared quickly. Moreover, they are very tasty.
