You'll love this vegetarian take on the classic Chinese takeout dish. It'll be difficult to go back to delivery again! The chow mein also comes together in one pot, making cleanup a breeze. This recipe is chockfull of garlic, ginger, leeks, carrots, zucchini, water chestnuts, mushrooms, and tofu. Tofu takes on the flavour of the foods with which it's cooked, so spice it up, and don't limit yourself to Asian flavour—you should try Cajun and chili seasonings. We call for cooked spaghetti here, but if you can find dried chow mein or lo mein noodles, feel free to use those instead.
