Vegetable Lo Mein

It is no secret we love all types of Asian food, we make some version of stir fry at least once a week in our Wok. We have Chinese, Japanese and Thai delivery places on our speed dial. We never seem to get sick of the fresh vegetables and sweet tangy flavors Asian cuisine has to offer. Although it is always delicious from a restaurant it is definitely healthier to make yourself. I have never made Lo Mein before or a dish with this many vegetables so it was worth a try. This turned out to be quick and easy, plus it made me feel healthy. If you are looking for a different Asian dish take a peek at our Teriyaki Lettuce Wraps.

2 Tbsp Vegetable Oil
12oz Package Snow Peas
1 Large Red Pepper - Diced
8oz Package Mushrooms - Sliced
4 Scallions - Diced
1 Cup Carrots - Diced
12oz Package Fresh Bean Sprouts
4 Cloves Garlic - Minced
1 Tbsp Fresh Ginger - Minced
1 lb Thin Spaghetti - Cooked al dente
1/2 Cup Soy Sauce
Sesame Seeds for Garnish

Start by getting a pot of salted water boiling on the stove for your noodles. Cook your noodles according to their package. Next prep all of your vegetables. Our grocery store did not have fresh snow peas so I got a bag that was frozen. Make sure to use fresh bean sprouts instead of canned which can be found normally by the tofu. Wash and cut the red pepper, carrots, mushrooms and scallions. Mince the ginger & garlic.
By now your noodles should be done. Drain them and set aside. Heat your wok or very large pan over high heat. When the pan is hot add the oil. If vegetables aren't enough and you want to use a protein this is where I would add some chicken or beef to the recipe. If not, immediately add the snow peas, pepper, mushrooms, scallions, carrots and bean sprouts. Stir Fry for 2-3 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic, stir fry another 2-3 minutes.
Add the noodles to the wok and toss everything to combine. Once the noodles are mixed in, add the soy sauce and continue sitring so that everything is coated evenly with sauce. Stir fry for another 2 minutes stiring constantly. Transfer to bowls, garnish with seasme seeds and serve immediately.

Enjoy!! - Nicole

  1. This dish was FANTASTIC! In fact, I enjoyed it so much...I made it twice in a week! I love cooking stir-fry and am always looking for new healthy and light recipes. The second time I cooked the dish, I made it for my boyfriend and he thoroughly enjoyed it as well. The only thing we added was some broccoli as we both love using the vegetable in our stir-fry dishes. I can't wait to continue to make this dish. Thanks Nicole for the awesome recipe! :)
