easy veggie lo mein
Two ramen recipes back to back?? I know, I know, it's a lot, but you know that feeling you get when you discover something new that you really like? Well, that's how I feel about these noodles. They were such a great Costco find! 👏 So, yea I got inspired. And I started craving stir fry/lo mein the other night, so I figured that these noodles would be a great healthier option for a veggie lo mein dish.
This dish is great because it's really quick and easy to make (especially if you can pick up a couple of the packaged veggies at Trader Joe's like I did), and it's definitely a crowd pleaser. With all the veggies to choose from there's something for everyone. The flavors are a combination of savory, spicy and sweet, making this a really exciting weeknight dish!

- 2 teaspoons avocado oil
- Broccoli (I used one bag of broccoli florets from Trader Joe's or 1 head will do)
- Snap peas (I used one bag of snap peas from Trader Joe's)
- 4 oz. cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
- 4 celery sticks, thinly sliced
- 2 large carrots, julienned
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon sriracha
- 1/2 teaspoons black pepper
- 1 teaspoon sesame oil
- 3 Lotus Foods Millet and Brown Rice Ramen cakes
- Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
- Heat a wok or large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add avocado oil, broccoli and snap peas. Toss frequently and cook for about 5 minutes.
- While the broccoli and snap peas are cooking, prepare the sauce by whisking together soy sauce, maple syrup, ginger, garlic powder, sriracha, black pepper, and sesame oil. Set aside.
- After about 5 minutes, add the mushrooms, carrots and celery to the wok and cook until the vegetables are just starting to become tender (about another 5 minutes).
- Once the rest of the vegetables have been added to the wok, add the ramen cakes to the pot of boil water. Cook according to package instructions.
- Once the veggies are tender, add the drained ramen noodles to the wok and pour sauce over the noodles and vegetables. Toss until everything is coated.
