Vegetable Lo Mein

I love lo mein and it's so easy to make. I should make it more!

The reason that I think it's such a great dinner it that you can really use whatever you have in your fridge to make a great meal. It's such a good way to use up what you have.

You can really use any vegetables you have on hand - be creative!

2 carrots, peeled and chopped

1/4 c. or more soy sauce
2-3 tbsp. vegetable or canola oil

I haven't made lo mein with spaghetti but I imagine it tastes delicious... and spaghetti much easier to to use than the ethnic noodles I tend to use!
