You don’t need takeout with this easy Vegetable Chow Mein recipe, just packed with veggies!! Veggie lovers rejoice: snap peas, carrots, broccoli and bell peppers mixed with chow mein noodles in a savory sauce. If you can’t find chow mein noodles, try substituting ramen noodles, which are very similar. What’s really important is the thickness — you want your noodles to be on the thinner side so they crisp up easily when you fry them. This is a very simple healthy and tasty dish.

Do the prep, as the frying process goes very fast, so you really want everything to be ready for you when you need it. You can cut the veggies any way you like. Usually they are cut thinly so they are almost hidden with the noodles. I like to mix it up and have smaller and chunkier vegetable for texture.

Homemade vegetable chow mein that’s better than takeout and almost as easy! Mix your sauce, chop the veggies, and boil the noodles. If you have any leftovers, it will keep in an air tight container in the fridge for a couple of days.
