My partner is a lo mein fiend and while it's not always vegan at restaurants (egg noodles), we've found some great noodles so we can make it ourselves. The thing is, I'm not sure what combo of sauce(s) to use to coat the noodles - I think I've made it differently every single time, to varying degrees of success. So, do you have a favorite recipe for lo mein?

I haven't made it in years, but to my memory, the version that tasted closest to the noodles I obsessed over growing up at the local Chinese restaurants was made with soy sauce, vegetarian oyster sauce, a little sugar and maybe sesame oil? And green onions (though I enjoyed those much more as a child). I also liked doing little strips of baked tofu to implicate the pork.
Good luck!

Here's your fix for awesome vegan lo mein...

The PBS recipe below for Asian baked tofu is the BEST recipe for baked tofu I've come across. Either use the leftover marinade and add it to a stir fry pan with Asian noodles of your choice (soba, udon, rice, even regular spaghetti) and serve the baked tofu on top of the lo mein. Or just make a tiny bit of the marinade if you want to make lo mein without making the baked tofu. This baked tofu is the shiitake tho.


And here's the ingredients for those adverse to clicking on links. I'd cut everything in half if you aren't making the tofu and just want lo mein sauce to add to some noodles.

2 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp soy sauce
1 tbsp rice vinegar
3 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp sriracha sauce
pinch of garlic powder
pinch of onion powder
pinch of sea salt
