Vegetable Lo Mein

Since my last post was a Pad Thai Salad, I figured I would keep the theme going and post my Vegetable Lo Mein recipe! I know it’s not technically Pad Thai, but it’s close enough 😉 I loved making this because there was very little clean up! Feel free to mix up the vegetables you add and the noodles you use . . . although I highly recommend Soba, they are my favorite! Pad Thai Salad for lunch, Vegetable Lo Mein for dinner . . . yes please!

Vegetable Lo Mein Ingredients

Ingredients:

-Soba noodles

-1 Tablespoon dark soy sauce

-2 Tablespoons light soy sauce — you guys know by now I use Tamari instead of Soy! —

-1 teaspoon sesame oil

-1 teaspoon sugar + 1 teaspoon hot water to dissolve the sugar

-1 Tablespoon oil — I used coconut, duh! —-

-1 bunch of green onion, split at the thick parts & cut into 2″ pieces lengthwise

-1 pepper, diced

-Carrots, diced

-Snow peas, trimmed

-1 onion, diced

^How CUTE is that baby bok choy?!

Directions:

-Boil water in a large pot for the noodles. Cook to package instructions, drain, & rinse in cold water. Set aside

-In a small bowl combine the soy sauces, sesame oil, & dissolved sugar. Set aside

-Heat oil in a skillet (or wok . . . if you have one I am jealous) over high heat & add the garlic & the white part of the green onion. Stir – fry for 30 seconds & add the peppers, carrots, & onion. Make sure your skillet is searing hot & then add the white wine vinegar. Stir – fry for another minute

-Next, add the snow peas, green peas, bean sprouts, & bok choy & cook until the greens are just wilted. Then add your noodles. Make that before you add them to the pan they are somewhat loose & not all clumped together (you can rinse them in warm water to loosen them up before adding them to the pan)

-Pour your sauce mixture over the noodles & stir – fry until the color of the noodles are uniform. A folding or scoop & lift motion works well for that (I use tongs for this!) . Once everything is well combined, dish out the noodles/vegetables & serve
