Healthy variation of "Lo Mein"
· Chicken or beef (I used organic, free-range chicken)
· 1/4 cup almonds, chopped
· 1/2 cup shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and cut in half
· 1/4 cup celery, chopped
· 1 tablespoon minced garlic
· 2 cups broccoli
· 2 cups shredded cabbage
· Toasted sesame oil
· Coconut aminos
· Sesame seeds to garnish
Clean all vegetables and trim fat from meat (if applicable).
Cut broccoli, chicken and mushrooms into bite sized pieces.
Thinly slice 2 cups of cabbage (about half the head of cabbage).
Chop almonds, celery; mince garlic.
Heat wok over high heat.
Add sesame oil, swirl to coat bottom of wok, then add meat.
Cook meat for 3-4 minutes, until mostly cooked.
Add in broccoli, celery and shiitake mushrooms; cook for 2 minutes
Add in almonds, cabbage, and garlic. Add a splash of coconut aminos (2-4 tbsp). Cook 2-3 minutes, until cabbage softens a little.
