Veggie Lo Mein

One of my favorite take-out foods is Chinese.  In fact, part of our New Years Eve tradition is ordering in Chinese take-out.  Unfortunately, now that our bodies are no longer used to junk, and it wreaks havoc on our digestive systems.  I have made it my mission to make it at home, and make it well.  

The first thing on the list?  Veggie Lo Mein.  

This recipe looked like a good starting place. 

I needed to make enough for us to have for lunch, so I doubled the recipe right off the bat and cooked a full box of spaghetti.  While that cooked, I started cooking up the veggies that would take the longest (celery, onion, garlic).  
When they were partially cooked, I added in the faster cooking veggies (red cabbage, scallions, mushrooms).
While that cooked up, I made the sauce. 
1 cup soy sauce, 2 t. sesame oil, 2 T rice wine vinegar, and 2 T Coconut Oil.
I poured it into the pan with the veggies and mixed it in with the spaghetti.  
While it didn't taste like take-out Lo Mein, that wasn't a bad thing.  I really enjoyed it, and it reheated well.  I liked that I can adapt it based upon the veggies I have around the house.

  1. Looks delicious! You know, I've been using coconut oil too for noodles and pastas and love the flavor.
