Forget about takeout when you can make this Vegetable Lo Mein at home is less than 20 minutes! The perfect quick pasta dish with a light and healthy twist.
I remember the days of playing college football and going to the Chinese buffet ready to kick ass and take names! Speaking of the food, that is. 🙂
One dish that would always be on my plate first was the lo mein noodles. Lo mein is a Chinese stir fry dish that consists of egg noodles and a variety of vegetables along with an optional meat addition like chicken or beef (or even tofu).
Today I bring to you my version of the dish I truly enjoyed growing up and that's the simple and easy to make Vegetable Lo Mein. I decided to rock out with a veggie-only dish and the flavors from the stir-fried shiitake mushrooms, carrots, red peppers, and spinach bring this dinner idea full circle.
The aroma from the garlic and green onions are awesome and once the noodles are added to the pan you can bet the soy sauce mixture is coming along with it. The noodles soak up all the tangy sauce and the vegetables share in the celebration. This came to be one of those dishes that makes frequent guest appearances at my dinner table.
