      This version of Vegetable Lo Mein is my own creation after trying out several other recipes. It’s a vegetarian main dish that tastes very delicious and is also healthy. This recipe makes enough for a family of 4-6 people. Cut down on the amounts of all ingredients if you wish to make for only a couple people.

      4 cups vermicelli or spaghetti, uncooked 2 large carrots, peeled, cut into long, thin slices OR 1/2 to 1 pound of baby carrots (cut in half for smaller pieces) 3 large celery sticks, cut into small pieces 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped 1/4 cup olive oil 2 Tbsp white sugar OR brown sugar 3 Tbsp Soy sauce 4 Tbsp Teriyaki Sauce

      Optional Ingredients: 2 bamboo shoots, chopped OR 1 small can (8 oz) bamboo shoots, drained, and rinsed well with cold water 1/2

      onion, sliced 1/2 red, orange, or yellow bell pepper (or use 1/4 of each color pepper) 1 cup sliced or whole snow peas 1 cup bean sprouts

      While pasta is cooking, steam carrots, celery, bell peppers, and any other vegetables. Steam veggies until tender or until a fork easily goes through the carrots. I have a Turbo Cooker that I always use when making Vegetable Lo Mein so everything gets finished at the same time. If cooking pasta and steaming veggies separately, then keep hot until both are done.

      Rinse pasta with hot water when it’s done. Combine pasta with all vegetables. Add olive oil, sugar, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, and mix well. Serve immediately.

      Sometimes the finished Vegetable Lo Mein will get a little dry (if not enough sauces or olive oil are used). Add more olive ...

      • oil if it gets too dry, or add a little water. Following the recipe above will keep the finished Vegetable Lo Mein very moist (even leftovers warmed in a microwave will be moist the next day).

        If making the recipe for only a couple people, then cook 2 cups of dried vermicelli or spaghetti, and cut down on all veggies by half. Also, cut down to only one Tbsp of sugar. For the sauces, use 2 Tbsp soy sauce and 3 Tbsp teriyaki sauce. Keep the olive oil at 1/4 cup otherwise it might dry out.

        Use any combination of veggies you wish, but remember that the finished Vegetable Lo Mein will become dry easier if you use large quantities of many extra veggies. To prevent dryness, simply add more sauces and/or olive oil (or a little water). Adding

        enough soy sauce and teriyaki sauce will keep the Vegetable Lo Mein moist even after it has been sitting in the refrigerator for two days.

        You can leave out the sugar. I used to make Vegetable Lo Mein with white sugar to calm down the taste of the sauces a little bit. One time I switched to brown sugar and it tastes a little different, but is still very good. Now I always use brown sugar instead of white sugar because I prefer the taste over white sugar. The white sugar gives the Vegetable Lo Mein a little bit of a sweet taste (which can be great for getting kids to eat more veggies).

        Vegetable Lo Mein is a very delicious main dish that is also healthy. Every time I make this recipe I always end up eating too much because it tastes super delicious. I highly recommend making this recipe.
