Vegetable Stir Fry Lo Mein from #lomein #vegetarian 2WM

Sometimes I go through phases where I want to eat little to no meat. I’m sort of going through one of those phases right now. Poultry and seafood are ok this time but red meat and pork are something I just don’t want right now. Now that could all change the minute a juicy burger is put in front of me but for now, the meals I cook at home are either vegetarian or full of chicken or seafood.

I’m quite the sucker for Chinese food. Lo Mein, steamed dumplings (yes, I’d probably jump all over some pork steamed dumplings if they were in front of me too) vegetable fried rice, chicken with broccoli and crab rangoon are some of my favorite Americanized Chinese dishes. Chinese food is pretty simple to make. I’ve made quite a few Chinese dishes ranging from fried rice to crab rangoon. And you can too!

  1. I’m a big stir fry person and this looks delicious Julie! :) I’m a sucker for steamed dumplings too. They are the best!!!

    • Thank you so much, Anne! I have a confession to make…We ordered Chinese takeout last night. Busy day, didn’t feel like cooking. I ordered the steamed dumplings!

  2. Julie-
    Oh yes! Another tasty dish, just in time for dinner tonight:)

  3. I make stir fry all the time. With or without meat. Chicken is my preference. In the summer I could skip meat too.
    Thanks for sharing. I know what I’m making for dinner.

    Wishes for tasty dishes,

  4. YUM! Those noodles look so good, and I love all the other suggestions too! Your photos are gorgeous as always. Nice job :)

  5. I love Stir frys too and they are a staple in my dinner menu. This lo mein looks so good! I love that it’s meatless too…sometimes even carnivores need a break lol!

    • Thank you so much, Zainab! I agree! I think I am slowly slipping back in to my very little meat/mostly vegetarian diet. We will see how long that lasts this time. Last time it lasted for a month and a half.

      Have a wonderful weekend!

  9. Love seeing an Asian dish on your site, Julie! :D I like how easy to put together and it can be main dish or side dish for BBQ. The sauce seems addicting too!

    • Thank you, Nami! I absolutely love the sauce. It is so good! Now maybe one day I can make some sushi and get a sushi recipe on my site. :) Have a wonderful day!

  11. I tried doing meatless Mondays at home, but everyone pitched a fit and made me put meat back in their dinner! Sometimes it’s nice to have a light meal :)

  12. Oh perfect! We love chinese food too. I bought some snow peas for salads, but before I used them my garden peas were ready to pick, so of course I’ve just left the snow peas alone. Now I know what to use them in!

  13. I love Lo Mein! I definitely need to try yours :)
    Thanks for coming to the party!
