Lo Mein

Lo Mein

I really liked this dish but I don't think that Jeremy was overly impressed.  I thought it was a great way to eat a huge variety of vegetables in dinner, and you could easily change the veggies to match your taste.  Add your choice of cooked protein for a complete meal.

-1 box whole wheat spaghetti (or desired noodle type), cooked al dente
-2 Tbsp canola oil
-4 cups shredded cabbage (or cole slaw mix)
-1 cup shredded carrots
-1 pack mushrooms, quartered
-2 cups broccoli, cut into bite size pieces and steamed in the microwave for 6 minutes
-4 green onions, sliced
-6 Tbsp soy sauce
-3 Tbsp rice vinegar
-6 Tbsp brown sugar
-1.5 tsp sesame oil
-1 Tbsp ginger, minced
-2 cloves garlic, minced
-1.5 tsp sriracha sauce
-2 Tbsp cornstarch

Heat oil in large stir-fry pan or wok over medium heat, add shredded cabbage and carrots, cook until the veggies begin to soften.  Remove cabbage mixture and set aside.  Add mushrooms to pan, cook until almost done, then set aside with cabbage.

Whisk together sauce ingredients.  Add sauce to the pan.  Cook for 2 minutes (or until thickened), stirring often.  Add cabbage mixture, mushrooms, broccoli, green onions, and spaghetti to the pan.  Cook, stirring well until everything is well mixed and warm.   Serve.
