If your tired of never getting enough veggies in your take-out, try making your own, that’s what I did and since then I have not looked back. Versatile and easy to put together vegetable lo mein makes the perfect week night meal.
In this version I used mushrooms, carrots, red bell pepper, bok choy, green onion and mung beans. For the noodles I used millet and brown rice ramen and garnished with crunchy peanuts and diced cucumber slices. So satisfying that a certain carnivorous person around here did not miss a thing. Even seconds were had, now that is saying something.
Vegetable Lo Mein
2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic (grated)
½ bunch scallions, cut into 2 inch thin strips
3 small bok choy, sliced into ribbons
1 medium carrot, julienne
8 ounces cremini mushrooms (sliced)
1 small red pepper (sliced into thin strips and then cut in half
2 large handfuls fresh mung beans
2 cakes organic millet and brown rice ramen (Lotus Foods-bought at Costco).
Notes * you can use any type of noodle even spaghetti, the other day I saw dried edamame noodles, who knew. Also you can substitute any veggie combo that you like, and you can spice it up with peppers and sriracha.
