Nutritional Wisdom with Carly Pollack

15 Minute “Lo Mein”

3 tbsp. tamari
1 tsp. sesame oil
1 tsp. coconut sugar
Lo Mein:
1 cup cooked brown rice
4 oz zucchini noodles
2 oz favorite protein (chicken, steak, fish, tofu, etc.)
1 tbsp sesame oil
3 green onions, chopped (separate green parts from white parts – you’ll use both separately)
2-3 cups julienne cut or chopped vegetables like carrots, red peppers, cabbage, bok choy, mushrooms, or broccoli
2 tbsp mirin (sweet cooking rice wine)

1. Sauce: Shake all the sauce ingredients together in a jar.
2. Noodles: Cook the rice according to package directions. Have zucchini noodles ready to go.
3. Lo Mein: Heat the sesame oil in a large wok or skillet. Add the green onions (white parts) and vegetables to the hot pan. Stir fry until fork-tender, about 5 minutes. Add the mirin to loosen the browned bits up off the bottom of the pan. Add the zucchini noodles and brown about half of the sauce – toss around in the hot pan to combine. Add more sauce if needed. Serve topped with remaining green onions!
