Chinese Veggie Lo mein noodles!

As a huge lover of Chinese food, steaming hot noodles laden with vegetables do something to my foodie soul. I see them and no one can control what happens next…..I grab a plate and pile it high with a humongous stack of that deliciousness. In goes my fork….*twirl twirl twirl* and I am soon transformed into a noodle monster with half of the noodles dangling down my smirking mouth. AAhhhhh pure bliss!

You can never have enough noodle variations and Lo mein is one of my favorite one from our nearby Chinese takeout place.

The key ingredients here are egg noodles, good-quality soy sauce, oyster sauce, mirin and that fragrant sesame oil. It’s ridiculously easy to make and perfect for the days when you feel like whipping up some dinner for the fam in more or less 15 minutes.

  5. I’m not a fan of the instant noodles and prefer egg noodles to make veggie noodles at home. In fact had some for dinner today. Have no idea what mirin is.
