Veg Chow Mein

Whenever my fridge gets an overdose of fresh veggies from the market I make veg chow mein for the two of us. It’s such a great way to eat vegetables. I almost hate veggies in curries...almost because I really love eating them in a fish curry, so veg chow mein is kind of my escape route to have a perfect veg meal without feeling gory. I think you have got my point.
