Lo Mein is one of our favorite vegetarian dinners, so trying Instant Pot Lo Mein was something we were excited to try! If you have not started the new Weight Watchers Freestyle program yet, now is the time! They've added over 200 zero point foods, including lean chicken and turkey (which you can easily add to this recipe without adding points).
