Faux Lo Mein recipe

faux mein

A scrumptious experiment! Has a bit of a tangy, gingerey little kick overlaid with a subtle nuttiness.

I rate this one’a my elusive 10s … reserved for somethin’ EXTRA special. This one really hit the mark so a 10 we shall give it.

My friend Virginia craves lo mein so I found a way to make it nice ‘n fresh ‘n healthy ‘n big time yum.

Once again … I am in love with a food!

Faux Mein Recipe

First ingredients …

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup snow peas
  • 1 carrot, julienned
  • 1  celery stalk, thinly sliced
  • 2 scallions, chopped
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts  (I used lentils)
  • 8 oz water chestnuts

Next ingredients …

  • 1 inch fresh ginger root, minced or grated
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

And then …

Cook capellini.

Stir fry first 7 ingredients in large skillet or wok on medium heat for 3 min. Add ginger and garlic and stir fry 2 min.

Mix in cooked capellini and toss with Bragg Liquid Aminos. Serve with sesame oil drizzled on top.

If you want more flavor, feel free to sprinkle on a little more aminos for saltiness or sesame oil for nuttiness.

Tips for non-clumping pasta:

  •  Use a large pot so the pasta has room to move around.
  • Add a little salt and a small splash of olive oil to your water.
  • Being water to a rolling boil before dropping in pasta.
  • Immediately stir pasta as soon as it hits the water and for about 2 minutes after.
