This lo mein can be on the table in no time and is packed with flavor without having to use those fancy sauces. The excess liquid will be soaked up by the noodles. Top with sriracha sauce to taste (optional).

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil; cook noodles, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 6 minutes. Drain and toss with 1 teaspoon sesame oil.

  • Heat remaining sesame oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add turkey, onion, and garlic to the hot oil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until ground turkey is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Drain excess grease and return to the pan.

  • Pour in chicken broth, water chestnuts, soy sauce, and onion soup mix. Stir until well combined. Add celery, snap peas, and bell pepper. Cook and stir until slightly softened, 3 to 5 minutes.

  • Add noodles and bean sprouts to the pan. Stir to combine and serve immediately, topped with red pepper flakes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute ground beef or chicken if desired. Use beef broth if using ground beef.

Rice in place of the noodles works great. I've even used leftover vegetables.

You can find lo mein noodles in the Asian foods section of most major supermarkets. If you can't find lo mein, you can substitute linguine or spaghetti.

I was pleasantly surprised! I made this dish verbatim and we loved it. I added crunchy lo mein noodles on top and they added to the dish. I was skeptical at first with the onion soup mix and the sesame oil but it came out delicious. Don’t leave out the red pepper; you hardly notice it but it’s needed. Read More

It's a delicious dish, BUT the sodium content is way more than the Recommended Daily Allowance for one day. The Onion Soup definitely adds a lot of flavor, but it's also loaded with sodium, which takes away the 'healthy' in this lovely dish. I wish that "Lipton' would come up with an (optional) lower sodium version of their dry soups, which many of us use when cooking. Otherwise, this is a lovely dish. Read More

Very easy to make, and a delicious use for lean ground turkey. I didn't have water chestnuts, celery, or bean sprouts, but I replaced them with other stir fry veggies like broccoli. It was saucy and tasty. Read More
