This is a fun family meal that lets you use your creativity and tailor the meal to your own individual tastes. It's a great way to sneak in whatever veggies your family likes. TIP: Use instant rice in place of uncooked rice if you're pressed for time.
1 C. uncooked brown rice

1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 C. chow mein noodles** (I used La Choy-no hydrogenated oils!)
