Ingredients

Chinese chefs love traditional, rustic cooking techniques that limit food waste. In this lo mein, the (usually discarded) starchy water of the rice noodles is stirred into the light soy and sesame oil sauce, creating a velvety and nourishing patina on each strand of noodle - much like how Italian pasta sauces are emulsified with pasta cooking water. The accompanying Chinese cabbage (aka ‘napa’ or ‘dàbáicài’) has a sweet juiciness that pairs well with pickled or fermented flavours, as in Korean kimchi or this delicately salty glaze of savoury miso.
