Edamame Lo Mein


8 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti (used Nasoya Chinese noodles)
2 cups frozen edamame, (shelled soybeans)
4 scallions, thinly sliced
1/4 cup oyster sauce, or vegetarian “oyster” sauce
1/4 cup rice-wine vinegar
3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons sugar
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 tablespoons canola oil
2 medium carrots, cut into matchsticks
2 small red bell peppers, cut into matchsticks
*1 cup frozen corn

Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add spaghetti and edamame and cook, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain.

Meanwhile, whisk scallions, oyster sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil and crushed red pepper in a small bowl until the sugar is dissolved.

Heat canola oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add carrots and bell peppers and cook, stirring often, until slightly softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the pasta and edamame. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the pasta is crispy in spots, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the sauce and stir to combine.

*Noodles and edamame are one of the favorite foods of my boys. So, it just made sense to make it when I found the recipe. I didn’t have red bell pepper I just substitute it with corn. They loved it…it is family approved. You can add  leftover shredded chicken and it’s a complete meal. enJOY!!!
