Ingredients

For the noodle

  • 8 oz Lo Mein noodles
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tsp garlic 2 cloves, minced
  • 2 cups cremini mushroom sliced
  • 5.3 oz red bell pepper 1 medium, julienned
  • 2.8 oz carrot 1 medium, julienned
  • 1/2 cup snow peas whole
  • 3 cups baby spinach whole

For the sauce

  • 2 tbsp sodium soy sauce reduced
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Sriracha

Instructions

Prep

  • Put all ingredients in the sauce list into a small mixing bowl. Whisk them together until everything dissolves and set aside.
  • Boil a large pot of water and cook the noodles as instructed on the package. Make sure to take a bite to judge its texture. Remember, it should be soft, not so chewy.

Cook

  • Heat the pan with some oil over medium-high heat and toss in the garlic along with the stiff veggies (carrots, mushrooms, and bell pepper). Stir it for about 3-4 minutes or until tender.
  • Put in the soft veggies (snow peas and spinach) for 2-3 minutes, or until the spinach looks wilted.
  • Stir in the egg noodles and the sauce, gently toss to mix everything.
  • Serve.

Notes

The dish, similar to most Asian dishes, should be served immediately as the noodles if left out for too long could turn soggy over time.
It’s possible to have a fried egg on top. Remember, however, that the egg will offer almost a hundred extra calories.
