Veggie Lo Mein

Guys, I’m not sure I ever had straight-up, cheap-o ramen out of a package before. I was much more an Easy Mac kind of gal in my college days and early 20s. BUT-I’ve always enjoyed veggie lo mein, but haven’t been able to recreate the right noodles at home. Enter the $1 package of ramen. Get two and a bunch of veggies and you’ll have a slurpable dinner in minutes!

Ingredients

  • 8 oz ramen noodles
  • 2 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 4 tbsp soy sauce
  • tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion thinly sliced
  • 4 tsp garlic, minced
  • 2 cup carrots shredded (about 5 carrots)
  • 2 bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 6-8 oz snow peas

Instructions

  • Boil a large pot of water; cook ramen noodles for 1-2 minutes, stirring to unfold. Drain, rinse, and set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together oyster sauce, sesame oil, and soy sauce. Set aside.
  • In a large pan, heat vegetable oil over medium heat. Add onion slices and cook for 4-5 minutes until tender. Add garlic, continuing to stir for 1 minute as it becomes fragrant. Add carrots, bell pepper, and snow peas. Cook for 4-5 minutes until tender.
  • Add cooked noodles, sauce, and stir to coat. Continue to cook for 2 minutes until noodles are cooked through and sauce is distributed evenly. Serve and enjoy.

Notes

  • No oyster sauce? No problem. Replace with a little hoison, fish sauce (smaller amount!), or any bottled stir fry sauce from the back of your fridge.
  • Stir in some Sriracha or garlic chili paste for a spicy kick!
  • A sprinkling of peanuts or cashews on top would add a fun crunch. 
 

MEAT LOVERS

  • If you want to add a protein, cook it with a bit of oil in the wok first and remove when cooked through. Add it back in at the end with the noodles to warm up.
 

VEGETARIANS

  • Keep in mind, with the use of oyster sauce, this isn’t technically a vegetarian meal.
