VEGGIE LO MEIN

On those days when you’re staring at your fridge full of vegetables but don’t want to spend all night preparing a meal, this meal is for you.

It requires just two pans (or one, depending on the noodles you use), no fancy or difficult-to-find ingredients, and it’s far healthier than the takeout versions.

The recipe can be made to be gluten-free.

 

Lo Mein Ingredients

  • ¾ package spaghetti or other types of noodles can be used. ***(see note below)
  • ¾ bunch broccoli, chopped
  • 2½ cups frozen edamame
  • 3 carrots, shredded
  • 4 cups spinach
  • 1½ tbsp coconut oil, or your choice of vegetable oil
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 tbsp ginger, minced
  • 6 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 6 eggs, beaten

 

*** Lo Mein Noodles: Use your favorite noodles (regular, gluten-free, or grain-free), such as rice noodles, ramen noodles, ribbon noodles, udon noodles, buckwheat, or linguine.

However, I like using SPAGHETTI NOODLES.

Yupp – even your favorite Italian noodles, like spaghetti, work for this vegan Asian recipe and are pretty yummy. (I love Garofalo Organic Noodles that are NOT ENRICHED )

Lo Mein Vegetables: I love this recipe because you can use whatever vegetables you have on hand.

It is so versatile and tasty. Here are some options that you can try:

  • Zucchini
  • Bell Pepper
  • Mushrooms
  • Garlic
  • Green Onions
  • Beansprouts
  • Snow peas
  • Spinach/ kale
  • Bok Choy
  • Cabbage
  • Eggplant

*** If you want to add more protein, you can add tofu, shrimp or chicken.

Lo Mein Instructions

1 – Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Add spaghetti and cook according to package directions, or until al dente, stirring occasionally. Add broccoli, edamame, carrots, and spinach in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Drain and set aside.

2 – Meanwhile, heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and cook until softened, about 4-5 minutes.

3 – Add ginger, soy sauce, vinegar, and sesame oil and stir-fry until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

4 – Add eggs and cook until set, about 2 minutes.

5 – Add spaghetti and veggies and stir to combine. Cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.

STORING INSTRUCTIONS

Keep any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-3 days. You can eat the leftovers cold or reheat them on the stove-top or in a microwave.

I like having the leftovers for breakfast. It is even yummy cold.

Enjoy!
