Vegetable Lo Mein


Ingredients (use vegan versions):

  • white soba Japanese noodles (not buckwheat)
  • 1 can water chestnuts
  • 1 can baby corn
  • 5-6 stalks of green onions/scallions
  • 1-2 carrots
  • 3 large handfuls of fresh bean sprouts
  • approx 3 tablespoon soy sauce
  • approx 1 tablespoon sesame oil
  • approx 1 cup sweet spicy chili sauce
  • optional: any other vegetables you enjoy! peppers, broccoli, etc! *note, if you are using
  • broccoli, it is best to blanche or steam first so they are not extremely crispy and
  • uncooked
  • olive oil or peanut oil (anything you prefer)


This recipe is very quick and requires
little preparation, making it easy to
make multiple entrees at once. I serve

problem finding it. It definitely
makes the dish though. A must-
ingredient! enjoy!
