Vegetable Lo Mein is Healthy
This easy Vegetable Lo Mein recipe is healthy, delicious and low in calories. It has my favorite vegetables: bok choy, shiitake mushrooms and red bell peppers that add lots of texture and colors to this beautiful dish. This noodle dish can be adapted to fit your taste; you can add the vegetables and mushrooms you like.
What Types of Vegetables To Use?
As the Lo Mein noodles are pretty soft, you want to use vegetables that are crisp, have a crunch or a bite. Here are some of my recommendations:
- Napa Cabbage
- Baby Bok Choy or Bok Choy
- Green, Red and/or Yellow Bell Peppers
- Green Beans
- Shiitake, white or brown mushrooms
Lo Mein is not the same as Chow Mein, they are actually very different. If you find a Lo Mein recipe that tells you to stir-fry the noodles, you are not making Lo Mein and the recipe is not authentic. Lo Mein is soft, slightly wet, with every strand of the noodles coated with the Lo Mein Sauce because the noodles are stirred in with the sauce and not stir-fried.
Please take note that even thought this recipe is made with vegetables, it’s not exactly vegan because Lo Mein noodles are egg noodles. If you want to turn this into a vegan dish, you may use Vegan Lo Mein noodles or Soba noodles.
