The Lo Mein noodles and sesame oil can be found in the Asian section of most supermarkets. Even though this recipe is vegan you could easily add some stir fried pork, chicken or beef if you prefer; simply double the sauce to have enough to coat the entire dish.

Lo mein noodles covered in a soy garlic sauce and loaded with carrots and broccoli.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups broccoli, chopped (about 2 heads)
  • 1 cup carrots, chopped
  • 12 oz lo mein
  • 1/2 cup garlic, minced (about 1 bulb)
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce

Instructions

  1. Chop broccoli, carrots and garlic.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add broccoli and carrots. Cook 3 minutes.
  3. Add lo mein to pot and cook 3-5 minutes or until tender. It cooks quickly so keep a close eye on it.
  4. While cooking the vegetables and noodles, in a small mixing bowl combine soy sauce, ginger, 1/4 cup sesame oil and cornstarch. Whisk to combine.
  5. Once lo mein is tender pour into a strainer and drizzle lightly with sesame oil to keep from sticking together.
  6. Return the empty pot to the stove and add a tsp of sesame oil and garlic. Cook 3 minutes.
  7. Add sauce and stir to cook until it thickens, about 2 minutes.
  8. Remove pot from the heat and add lo mein and vegetables back to the pot. Toss to coat with sauce.
  9. Serve and enjoy!

Notes

Lo Mein noodles can be found in most grocery stores in the asian foods section.

My entire family enjoyed this for dinner tonight! My son even asked to have the leftovers in his lunch for tomorrow. 🙌🏻 We added rotisserie chicken on top and didn’t use as much garlic. It was delicious!
