Vegetable Lo Mein

This is another recipe that I have found in my quest for healthier cooking at home.  It was really easy and quick to make.  Feel free to change up the vegetables and use whatever you have in the house.

This can be made gluten free by using gluten free soy sauce and rice noodles.  I've been able to find both at the grocery store with no problems.

Vegetable Lo Mein:
(Can You Stay for Dinner- serves 2)

For the Sauce:
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
1/4 teaspoon Chinese five spice powder
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon Sriracha hot chili sauce
2 teaspoons cornstarch

Remaining Ingredients:
2 teaspoons canola oil
2 cups bean sprouts
1/2 cup thinly sliced scallions, white and green parts
1 cup shiitake mushrooms, sliced
1 cup shredded Napa cabbage
1/4 cup grated carrot
6 oz rice noodles or whole wheat spaghetti

Cook the egg noodles or spaghetti according to package instructions, drain and set aside.

Stir all sauce ingredients together in a small saucepan set over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until thickened and glossy, about 3 minutes. Set aside.

Meanwhile, set a large wok or skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the two teaspoons of canola oil and swirl to coat. Add the bean sprouts, mushrooms, cabbage, and carrot. Saute for about 3 minutes, or until the vegetables begin to soften. Add the cooked egg noodles and the sauce, tossing to combine. Serve immediately.
