Vegan Lo Mein Recipe:


For the sauce:

  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup or agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil

For the lo mein:

  • 8 ounces lo mein noodles or other long noodles of your choice
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 medium carrots, julienned or thinly sliced
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage or bok choy
  • 1 cup bean sprouts (optional)
  • Green onions, sliced, for garnish


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce or tamari, hoisin sauce, maple syrup or agave nectar, rice vinegar, and sesame oil. Set aside.
  2. Cook the lo mein noodles according to the package instructions. Drain and rinse them under cold water to stop the cooking process. Set aside.
  3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large wok or skillet over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and grated ginger. Stir-fry for about 1 minute until fragrant.
  4. Add the sliced onion, carrots, bell pepper, and mushrooms to the wok. Stir-fry for about 4-5 minutes until the vegetables are tender-crisp.
  5. Add the shredded cabbage or bok choy, and bean sprouts (if using). Stir-fry for an additional 2-3 minutes until the cabbage has wilted slightly.
  6. Pour the sauce over the cooked vegetables and stir to coat evenly. Cook for another 1-2 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  7. Add the cooked lo mein noodles to the wok and gently toss them with the vegetables and sauce until everything is well combined and heated through.
  8. Remove from heat and garnish with sliced green onions.
  9. Serve the vegan lo mein hot and enjoy!
