  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons fresh ginger minced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 cup bok choy chopped (both green and white parts)
  • 2 large carrots peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 red bell pepper chopped
  • 8 oz shiitake or oyster mushrooms chopped
  • 8 ounces fresh or dried chow mein egg noodles
  • 1 cup fresh bean sprouts
  • 1 to 2 cups snow peas
  • 1/4 cup vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce + more if needed
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 green onions diced for garnish


  • Using a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. After a minute or so, add ginger and garlic and saute for a minute or two. Add all of the vegetables from the bok choy to the mushrooms and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables begin to soften a bit. Feel free to add a touch more vegetable oil if needed.
  • Next, add in the egg noodles and stir to combine. Cook for about 2 minutes and then add in bean sprouts and snow peas and cook for about 3 minutes or so. Add in the vegetable broth, hoisin sauce, soy sauce, and honey. Bring the mixture to a boil and stir until slightly reduced and thick, for about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste and garnish with the diced green onions before serving.
