In Solidarity

A dear friend of mine is having some health problems and has been placed on an extremely restricted diet. The hope is that this can reverse the problem and avoid a lifetime of medications.

Since I am (mostly) a vegetarian, I offered to show my friend how tasty vegetarian fare could be. I decided to cook some vegetarian meals that they could replicate and thought you might like to read about them, too.

Lo Mein for two

Start with some noodles:

I cooked up one bundle and set them aside.

Now chop the veggies:

Saute the garlic and ginger in a little oil:

Add the carrots, celery and onions (sorry for the steam in the photo):

Add the mushrooms, broccoli and snow peas:

Add a few tablespoons of water and cook until veggies are somewhat tender. Add in the noodles and some sauce* (and some sesame oil if you have it):

Let cook for a few minutes until the sauce thickens.



*sauce: I mix one cup of veggie broth with 2-3T of soy sauce, 1 T of rice wine vinegar (optional), and 1 T of cornstarch. I only use maybe 1/4 cup of this sauce for this amount of lo mein.
