How to Make Veggie Lo Mein
A Must-Try Recipe
This recipe is a must-try for two reasons: Firstly, it comes together really quickly—so if you're short on time, this is a recipe for you. Secondly, it's so tasty that it's always a crowd-pleaser. The sauce has the right balance of sweet and salty, and this recipe makes just the right amount to coat all the veggies and spaghetti.
I make this dish often because I can vary the vegetables and it always tastes delicious. Sometimes I'll add in bell peppers, snap peas, or whatever I have on hand.
- 6 oz spaghetti
- 1/2 cup soy sauce or tamari
- 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon honey
- 2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon fresh minced ginger (or powdered)
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 2 cups broccoli, cut into small florets
- 1 cup carrots, shredded
- 1 zucchini, cut into small pieces
- 1 sweet yellow onion, thinly sliced
- 1 cup corn kernels, can used canned or fresh corn cut off the cob
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds, to taste
- 1/2 cup green onion, thinly sliced
- Cook spaghetti according to the package directions. Drain and set aside.
- In a medium bowl, combine tamari, rice wine vinegar, honey, sesame oil, garlic powder, and minced ginger. Whisk and set aside.
- In a large skillet over medium heat, add olive oil. Once it is hot, add onions and sauté until they are almost translucent. Add broccoli and zucchini.
- Once tender, add carrots and corn kernels and cook for 2-3 more minutes.
- Remove veggies from the skillet and add all sauce ingredients to the pan. Stir prepared sauce and bring to a low simmer.
- When sauce has thickened slightly, add veggies and spaghetti to the skillet and toss to combine.
- Add ingredients to a bowl and garnish with sesame seeds and chopped green onions.
- Serve and enjoy!
- This can be refrigerated up to 3 days and reheated in the microwave or on the stovetop.
