Veggie Teriyaki Lo Mein

Satisfy that Chinese food craving with this healthy vegan veggie teriyaki lo mein


The healthy Chinese food alternative

This veggie teriyaki lo mein is weirdly good and will leave you satisfied. Let’s face it, sometimes you just need a night in with some Chinese food and a glass of wine. Chinese food is delicious but the aftermath for my stomach…not so much. Not to mention the alarmingly high levels of sodium, msg, and grease definitely don’t make the cut when it comes to the “eat good, feel good” dietary quota. That’s why on a rainy Wednesday night I created this super simple recipe with whatever I had lying around the kitchen. This veggie teriyaki lo mein is now a personal favorite of mine that satisfies my tastebuds and tummy.

*PERK ALERT: this recipe can easily be made on a two burner stove top!


Veggie Teriyaki Lo Mein
Prep time: 5min Cook time: 10min Total: 15min
Servings: 3-4

– 2 rice noodle cakes (I use Lotus Foods brown rice ramen)
– 2 tbsp coconut oil
– 1 head of broccoli florets
– 1bell pepper
– 1 yellow onion, largely cubes
– 2 carrots cut into .5inch
– 2 fresh ear of corn, or 1/3 cup frozen corn (optional)
– 2-3 tbsp teriyaki sauce
– 2 tsp garlic powder
– scallions & sesame seeds for topping

– prepare a small pot of water, bring to a boil while continuing following steps
– add coconut oil to pan
– add cut vegetables to pan on medium heat
– sauté for about 5min
– add teriyaki sauce (or teriyaki substitute)
– add garlic powder
– sauté for another 3min or until veggies are cooked to your liking (I like mine with some crunch to it. It maintains the nutritional value.)
– reduce heat to medium-low
– place two rice noodle cakes in boiling water
-once cakes begin to separate (About 1-2min), immediately transfer onto veggies in pan (this lets them stay more on the solid side and not turn into mush.)
– mix well
– serve topped with sesame seeds and chives

Note: The corn is optional, I had a fresh ear that I didn’t want to go to waste so I threw it in and wasn’t upset about it, it adds a slight sweetness. You can also add mushrooms to the mix. I wanted to try and keep chopping to a minimum. Also, add nutritional yeast if you’re lacking those B vitamins in your life!
