Units Scale
  • 45 ounces dry lo mein noodles – typically thin egg noodles, but sub any noodle you like- soba, GF noodles, whole wheat linguini, etc. If using fresh noodles, weight will be different, basically use enough for two servings.

Lo Mein Sauce:

Lo Mein Stir Fry:

  • 2 tablespoons wok oil, peanut oil or coconut oil
  • 1/2 onion, thinly sliced ( 1 cup)
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup matchstick carrots
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage
  • 1 cup snow peas or green beans

Garnish: scallions, sliced

Optional Additions: Crispy Tofu , chicken breast, shrimp, thinly sliced beef…etc.


  1. Set water to boil and cook the noodles according to the directions on the package.
  2. Stir together the Lo mein Sauce ingredients in a small bowl (see notes)
  3. Prep any and all veggies and set near the stove.
  4. In a wok or large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and mushrooms and saute 3-4 minutes, stirring continuously. Turn heat to medium, add the garlic and ginger and saute 2 minutes. Add the bell pepper, carrots, cabbage and snow peas and stir often, just letting them get tender, but still crisp, 3-4 minutes.
  5. Add the noodles and give a good stir and toss a few times to incorporate.
  6. Add the Lo Mein Sauce and stir and toss continuously 2 minutes. If it gets too dry add a little splash of water to loosen.
  7. Serve in two bowls, garnish with green onion.


Lo Mein will keep up to 4 days in the fridge!
