From the Test Kitchen

In this easy, Asian-style dish, springy lo mein noodles and veggies are tossed with a sweet and savory sauce made with orange juice, sweet chili sauce, and more. For a gourmet-style garnish, you’ll toss crunchy peanuts with furikake—a vibrant Japanese blend that highlights dried seaweed, sesame seeds, and chile flakes.
