How to make it
- Prepare all veggies in large kettle
- add broth and simmer gently covered for one hour
- add cornstarch that has been stired into one cp of cold water.
- gently cook til thickened.
- In the meantime cook your rice in a rice cooker if you have one. Otherwise cook on stove top till all broth has been absorbed and rice is light and fluffy.
- Fry wonton strips in hot oil (I prefer peanut)
- Toss cashews in hot fry pan till toasty. A few minutes will do.
- Serve chowmein over the rice or the chowmein noodles ( You can also use lowmein noodles if you like). Garnish with fried wonton strips and cashews. If you don't think this is the best chowmein you have tried I will be surprised, and guess what? It is a figure friendly meal. Hope you all enjoy
