Veggie Mee Goreng (Fried Noodles)

Veggie Mee Goreng (fried noodles) made with only vegetables and vegan ingredients. Easy veggie fried noodles recipe with ketchup, soy sauce, and lime.

A few weeks ago, I had a small gathering and one of my friends and her family are vegans. I decided to make some vegetarian food for them. As my friend is from Malaysia, I immediately thought of mee goreng, or Malaysian fried noodles, which is a delicious noodle dish commonly found on the street.

I decided to make veggie mee goreng for them and oh boy, I was so happy I did. The veggie mee goreng (fried noodles) was absolutely delicious and very popular, in no time, the noodle dish was gone. I guess everyone just loved the great taste.

Veggie Mee Goreng

Unlike Chinese noodles or Chow MeinMalaysian mee goreng is savory and zesty (from the addition of ketchup and squirts of fresh lime juice). Back in Malaysia, this noodle dish is made with spicy squid, potatoes, fried shrimp fritters, fried tofu pieces, and some boiled potato wedges. It was an easy conversion to make it the dish into vegan as I just had to opt-out the seafood. I added extra bean sprouts to make the dish lighter and more refreshing.

As I said, squirts of fresh lime juice right before serving adds extra flavors to this simple and humble dish. Try this veggie mee goreng recipe and all your carnivore and omnivore friends will be delighted to eat it, too.

            I love the yellow noodles, use them all the time – here in Sydney they are always called ‘Hokkien Noodles’.

            They have a distinctive taste and texture – I’m struggling to think of a good substitute, but one possibility might be Japanese udon noodles, which I’m pretty sure have no egg. Of the same thickness, our Vietnamese grocers here sell a tapioca noodle.

            We have some great sellers of Mee Goreng here – I love the stuff – with everything in it – especially slices of fish cake :)

    Yellow noodles does not contain egg. It most probably contain a bit of yellow colouring. The ones that does not contain yellow colouring is light brown colour.
