Veggie Lo Mein, By Nava Atlas
It’s so easy to make vegetable lo mein, a Chinese take-out favorite, at home—and it’s lighter and less heavy on the oil than its restaurant counterpart. Serve this with a simple combo of corn and edamame as shown in the photo; or with a tofu dish. Either way, round out the meal a simple crisp salad. Recipe from Plant Power: Transform Your Kitchen, Plate, and Life with More Than 150 Fresh and Flavorful Vegan Recipes by Nava Atlas. ©2014, published by HarperOne, reprinted by permission.

Serves: 4 to 6
- 8 ounces udon or soba, preferably whole-grain
- 1 tablespoon safflower or other high-heat oil, or 3 tablespoons vegetable broth or water
- 2 teaspoons dark sesame oil (optional but highly recommended)
- 1/2 small head green or napa cabbage, cut into long, narrow ribbons (see Note)
- 2 cups small broccoli florets
- 2 cups fresh green beans, trimmed and cut in half (see Note)
- 1 cup sliced mushrooms (optional)
- 3 to 4 scallions, white and green parts cut into 1-inch-long segments
- Vegetable broth or water for moistening
- Reduced-sodium natural soy sauce or tamari to taste
- Freshly ground pepper to taste
Cook the noodles according to package directions in plenty of rapidly simmering water until al dente, then drain.
Meanwhile, heat the safflower oil, broth, or water and 1 teaspoon of the sesame oil (if desired) in a stir-fry pan. Add the cabbage, broccoli, and green beans. Cover and cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the mushrooms, if desired, and scallions and stir-fry over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are just tender-crisp. Add a small amount of vegetable broth or water, just enough to keep the pan moist. (Enter the contest at the bottom of this blog).
