easy veggie lomein

Why get greasy takeout when you can make your very own veggie lomein? There’s a Chinese food place near where my parents live and they have the BEST veggie lomein ever. This is my attempt to recreate it. It’s a lighter version and does the trick when I’m craving Chinese!

You can modify this with preferred veggies- next time I would add baby corn. This took about 15 minutes to make from start to finish. You can prepare the veggies and sauce while the noodles boil!

recipe adapted from damn delicious 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cups cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1/2 cup snow peas
  • 1/2 green pepper, julienned
  • 1 cup broccoli florets

FOR SAUCE:

please note that you can add more or less of any of these to taste!

  • 2-4 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon Sriracha
