I was craving lo mein the other night so decided to make some at home instead of going out and spending a ton of money on Chinese food (which I love doing). I whipped this together with ingredients I had on hand and it turned out pretty good and definitely hit the spot!
Vegetarian Lo Mein Ingredients
- Spaghetti Noodles, Cooked
- Mushrooms, Sliced
- Jalapeños, Sliced
- Green Onions, Cut in Large Pieces
- Onion, Sliced
- Coconut Aminos
- Teriyaki Sauce
- Fresh Garlic Cloves, Chopped
- Hoisin Sauce
- Rice Vinegar
- Pink Himalayan Salt
- Olive Oil Cooking Spray
You can use any vegetables and add in any meat you want! Some of my other favorite vegetarian lo mein add-ins include broccoli, zucchini, bell peppers, pineapple, cilantro, peanuts, peas, carrots, and celery! Ginger would have also been added to this but I didn’t have any on hand.
Once the veggies are chopped and your noodles are boiled and drained, heat a pan on medium-high heat with olive oil cooking spray. Once the pan is hot, add everything right to it! Cook until the veggies are done to your liking.
Unfortunately I don’t measure much of anything when I cook- I just add seasonings and sauces to taste. Start with small amounts. You can always add more but you can’t take away! I probably only used two to three tablespoons of the rice vinegar and hoisin sauce. I went heavier on the coconut aminos and teriyaki sauce and used maybe four garlic cloves (I love garlic).
To accompany the lo mein I air fried vegetable egg rolls and served them with a side of sweet chili sauce for dipping!
For a small hint of sweet, sprinkle in brown sugar, and for extra spice, sprinkle in red pepper flakes!
