Quick & Easy Lo Mein
4–6 ounces uncooked soba noodles or noodles of choice
3tablespoons olive oilor oil of choice
3cupsjulienne cut or chopped vegetableswe used broccoli, brussel sprouts and carrots
Optional: 1 1/2 Tablespoons minced garlicadd to veggies when stir frying
In a large pot of boiling water, make sure you cook noodles according to package instructions and drain well when done. (See soba noodle tips below)
Heat olive oil in a large skillet or wok over medium high heat.
Add broccoli, brussel sprouts and carrots.
Cook, stirring frequently, about 2 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons of water and minced garlic (if using). Continue cooking for 2 more minutes.
Stir in soba noodles and soy sauce mixture, and gently toss to combine.
Tips for cooking noodles: In order to avoid the gummy quality, do not salt the water before cooking to keep them sticking and rinse the noodles immediately after straining them. After pouring the noodles into a colander, transfer them to a bowl of cold water and whirl them around. Or simply rinse them under running water. Keep them moving in or under water for a minute or so to remove the excess starch that creates that gummy texture.
