VEGETABLE LO MEIN

Chinese cuisine is one of my favorites… no doubt! This post is all about my recipe for vegetable lo mein, an easy and delightful dish.

SERVINGS: 3-4

INGREDIENTS

  • 200g chowmein noodles
  • 1 cup sliced sweet peppers
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 2 cups cabbage
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 pimentos, chopped
  • 3 cloves grated garlic
  • 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2-3 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp dark soy sauce
  • JGM Products cayenne pepper (optional)
  • TAI Kong Fried Rice Seasoning (as you like)

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Place noodles in a pot of boiling water and boil according to package instructions. No salt is added in this step.
  2. Heat olive oil in skillet or wok over low/medium heat.
  3. Saute garlic, onions and pimentos.
  4. Add onions, carrots and sweet peppers. Cook until for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Add cabbage, sesame oil, oyster sauce, soy sauce, fried rice seasoning and cayenne pepper. Mix well.
  6. Cook until vegetables are to your liking in terms of crunchiness.
  7. Add cooked noodles and toss well to mix all ingredients together.
  8. Taste and adjust fried rice seasoning if more salt factor is needed.
  9. TIME TO EAT! 😀

NOTE:

    The fried rice seasoning contains salt so no additional salt is required.
    All ingredients and measurements listed above can be adjusted to your liking.
    If you wish to have a ‘saucy’ noodles, be sure to add more of the oyster sauce, sesame oil and soy sauce.
    Soy sauce will add a salt factor to the dish so ensure you add a little at a time.
    Any veggies can be used in this dish. I have even used pak choy (bok choy) and snow peas when preparing this.
