Asian Noodle Dishes

Veggie Lo Mein

Veggie Lo Mein recipe

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.

Vegetable Chow Mein

Vegetable Chow Mein recipe

I learned something new recently — chow mein refers not so much to the specific types of noodles used (though it sometimes does use wider and sometimes shorter noodles than lo mein), but that the noodles are stir-fried along with the veggies. The amount and varieties of vegetables can be varied. Why call for take out when it’s so easy (and less greasy) to make this at home? Serve with a simple tofu dish and a salad or slaw dressed in sesame-ginger dressing for a great meal. Photos by Evan Atlas. more→
