A savory Vegetable Lo Mein Recipe with sumptuous Homemade Pasta. The base of this dish is a two ingredient pasta dough that is so simple, you’ll be looking for excuses to make it!
Sometimes I feel like I was born on the wrong continent. I would happily eat rice, pan-fried noodles, sushi, and spicy curries the rest of my days without complaint.
When we visited my parents in Tulsa, OK this summer, my secret goal, each day, was to eat at my favorite Vietnamese restaurant. It was the constant joke with my family, “Will Sommer find a way to sneak in her lunch appointment today?” Triumphantly, I did most days.
One of my favorite midweek go-to meals is stir fry. My kids get really excited when they see me put on a pot of rice and pull out my wok. Yet for a slightly more luxurious meal, I like to pull out my KitchenAid Mixer and Pasta Attachment to make my Vegetable Lo Mein Recipe!
Preparing homemade pasta takes very little time for the impact it has on the dinner plate.
This pasta dough takes me less than 15 minutes to mix, knead, and send through the pasta attachment.
Then it takes only a couple minutes to boil. It’s worth every second, to have tender doughy homemade pasta, that tastes and feels fresh.
I use this pasta dough for all sorts of ethnic dishes, but my favorite way to prepare homemade noodles is in vegetable lo mein.
As with any lo mein recipe or stir fry, it’s best to start with a really hot wok (or big ol’ skillet) and a scant amount of oil. Then pan fry each item alone in small batches.
That way the veggies are bright, crisp and lightly fried instead of limp and steamed, under the weight of the other veggies.
Don’t be hindered by the amount of ingredients in this vegetable lo mein recipe.
You can add or eliminate as many of the veggies as you want.
As for the sauce, you may already have soy sauce and sesame oil in your pantry, but look for good fish sauce and Chinkiang Vinegar (Chinese Black Vinegar) in the international section of your grocery store, or at an Asian market.
If you love stir fry dishes, you will want to have these ingredients on hand!
