Veggie Lo Mein

Anytime we order Chinese food, we always order lo mein. Always. So when Mr.ShoeFanatic talked to me about doing an "Asian night" I immediately asked if lo mein was part of the menu.

And of course it was. :)

6 oz lo mein noodles (we used linguine)
1 T oyster sauce
2 T soy sauce
1/4 c chicken broth
Pinch of red pepper flakes
1/2 T canola oil
1 small onion, chopped
2 bell peppers, seeded and sliced thin
1 c sugar snap peas
8 oz broccoli
8 oz. sliced mushrooms
1 c carrots, sliced
1 t sesame oil

Bring a pot of water to boil. Cook pasta. Drain and set aside.

In the meantime, make the sauce by combining the oyster sauce, soy sauce, chicken broth and red pepper flakes in a small bowl. Whisk well and set aside.

Heat the canola oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over high heat. Stir fry each set of vegetables one at a time, until tender. Once they are just tender, take out and set aside. When all the vegetable are cooked, add them all back into the wok together.

Add the sauce to the pan, and then the cooked noodles. Toss the mixture well to coat everything. Drizzle with the sesame oil and toss once more. Serve immediately.

This was for sure the winner in our night of Asian cuisine! I am in love with these veggies! They were cooked perfectly.

Mr.SF gets two thumbs way up for this! I can't wait to try it with chicken!
