Vegetable Lo Mein

Chinese take-out at home.
I tried this recipe with Hoisin Sauce and Thai Chili Sauce, but the Oyster Sauce worked the best.

You probably have almost all the ingredients for this!
It goes together very quickly.  For protein add tofu, chicken or pork.
Vegetable Lo Mein

1/2 lb. Lo Mein Noodles or Linguini
Sesame oil
1/4 cup oyster sauce
2 Tbsp. soy sauce (or to taste)
1 Tbsp. canola oil
1 Tbsp. minced fresh ginger
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 scallions, sliced
1 cup julienne carrot
1 cup thinly sliced celery
1 cup thinly sliced shallot or red onion
1 cup fresh bean sprouts

Cook pasta in boiling salted water until al dente.  Toss with a small amout of sesame oil and set aside.

In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp. canola oil and quickly saute ginger, garlic and scallions until fragrant.  Add the carrots, celery and onions and saute for about 2 minutes.  Stir in bean sprouts.

Add pasta, sauteed vegetables and stir in soy sauce and oyster sauce and mix to combine.
If you like a little spice, add some Chinese Hot Mustard or Chili Garlic Sauce.

  1. Oyster sauce is my absolute favorite to use in Asian inspired dishes! Love the recipe!

  2. Oh my goodness, this dish sounds delicious!!! My hubby and I LOVE making Chinese food, and this recipe looks easy and beautiful, too! I think I have most of these ingredients on hand already! Thanks for sharing...coming from Mix it up Monday. :)

  3. I learned a Philippine version of this by watching several women make their version. The idea is to use whatever vegetables you have available. I prefer to use organic veggies from local farmers. It's a easy, healthy way to prepare a wonderful meal. Enjoy everyone.

  4. I have to try this everytime I try making this dish it never comes out right and this is one of my fav chinese dishes besides fried rice

  5. This was a perfect quick dinner fix for a gal with a cold and two hungry fellas;)
