Vegetarian Chow Mein with Mushrooms, Snow Peas & Bean Sprouts

vegetarian chow mein

This vegetarian chow mein is a delicious and a simple meal that everyone will love. The recipe  has the perfect balance of noodles with a crispy goodness served with finely cooked vegetables and a favorable sauce.

Note~ Regular noodles (or the ones you get in a can, Yikes) do not compare. These pan-fried noodle have a wonderful freshness and a fabulous crisp texture. The noodles are commonly served under a bed of snow peas, wild mushrooms and beans sprouts seasoned with a light sauce. However, the recipe is flexible if you want to substitute another vegetable.

  1. Preheat oven to 450’. Immerse noodles into boiling water and cook for 1 minute. Drain and then toss with olive oil. Place noodles on baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes or until crispy, turn and bake the other side.
  2. Heat a wok or skillet with oil. When hot, add mushrooms, onion, garlic and ginger. Cook for 1 minute. Stir in Bok Choy, snow peas, bean sprouts and water chestnuts. Cook for 1 minute.
  3. Add cornstarch water, tamari and salt. Cook until thickened. Serve the vegetables over the pan-fried noodles. I prefer using chop sticks when eating this dish, but a fork will be sufficient.
