Plant Based Vegetable lo Mein

by Jill Dalton

One of my family’s favorite dishes is Vegetable lo Mein when we go out to eat but 20 minutes after eating it they usually regret it. They usually feel overfull from the oil, desperately thirsty from the salt and tired from the sugar crash.

This Plant Based, low salt, oil free version will leave you feeling light and satisfied! Spiralized zucchini make up the noodle part of the meal. Mixed into that are red bell peppers, oinions, carrots, tofu and a light but tasty sauce

We love tweaking Asian dishes to be plant-based. Lo mein is one we haven’t tried yet, so I can’t wait to get into the kitchen and give this a go. Thanks for the recipe!

You can’t find a normal size the Keeney and all you can find a zucchini squash? Do you know about how many pounds?

This looks great! Do you do anything to the “noodles” to drain the moisture out of them first?
