This post is sponsored by Better Than Bouillon, all opinions are my own.

Today I’ll be making a scrumptious Vegetable Lo Mein Recipe that uses Better Than Bouillon vegetarian line roasted garlic base as the sauce for a flavor punch.

It’s amazing how much of a flavor boost Better Than Bouillon Roasted Garlic Base can add to any recipe, but most specifically to my Vegetable Lo Mein Recipe shared today.

What is in Vegetable Lo Mein?

Vegetable Lo Mein contains stir-fried noodles, a variety of vegetables and a sauce that’s usually made from soy sauce.

In this Lo Mein recipe, I’ve added Better than Bouillon Roasted Garlic Base as an added flavor burst which really makes it absolutely delicious.

Some of my favorite recipes to serve along side this include Beef and Broccoli, The Best Sweet and Sour Chicken and Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Why this recipe works:

  • This recipe contains minimal ingredients that are easily available in your ethnic section at your local grocer.
  • It whips up from start to finish in under 30 minutes.
  • You can swap out any vegetables that you like for your preference.

Is Vegetable Lo Mein Vegan?

You really have to read the recipe ingredients and pick a specific Vegetable Lo Mein in order to be certain that the recipe is actually vegan.

It’s important to make sure your lo mein noodles don’t contain eggs and to make sure the sauce you’re using is from a vegetarian line such as Better Than Bouillon’s vegetarian line of sauces.

When you opt to make your own Vegetable Lo Mein Recipe then you’ll be more apt to know for certain if it is vegan or not.

The list of certified vegan products and vegetarian line of sauces come in the following flavorful options; Seasoned Vegetable Base, Roasted Garlic Base, Organic Seasoned Vegetable Base, Vegetarian No Beef Base, and Vegetarian No Chicken Base.

How to make Vegetable Lo Mein:

For the Sauce:

  1. Place all ingredients in a bowl and whisk together, set aside.

For the lo mein:

  1. Cook the noodles per the instructions on the back of the bag, drain, and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add the oil, the vegetables, and the white part of the scallions to the pan.
  3. Stir fry for 5 minutes until charred but still tender crisp.
  4. Add the noodles to the pan and add half of the sauce.
  5. Toss to combine, until everything is coated in the sauce. Add more sauce if you like a darker look to the noodles, I typically only use half.
  6. Once everything is coated in the sauce and the noodles are heated through, add the rest of the scallions, and serve.

Look how easy this recipe is? I mean how can you not want to make this? It is one of our favorite recipes that we make, and we make it at least once a month.

These flavors can be used as a marinade or broth in your favorite meatless dishes as well which is absolutely convenient. 

Better Than Bouillon doesn’t expire as quickly as the canned broths that can often have issues with dissolving in your favorite meals.

In addition to this, Better Than Bouillon’s vegetarian line is certified vegan allowing you to indulge in a flavor burst without getting away from your vegetarian diet.

This product is also fabulous used in dipping sauces and pretty much any other recipe that requires a little flavor boost.

How Long Does Better Than Bouillon keep?

One of the benefits of Better Than Bouillon is that it’s very shelf stable.

You can keep an unopened jar of Better Than Bouillon on the shelf until it’s been opened.

Once you’ve opened a jar of Better Than Bouillon it’s important to store it in the refrigerator. Better Than Bouillon has a shelf life of two years as long as it’s been refrigerated after opening.

How to store: 

If you store this in an airtight container such as a Tupperware container of a ziptop bad then this recipe will last about 3-4 days. 

You can reread in the microwave or in a wok if you like.

This recipe can also be frozen! Which we love especially when we make a double batch since we love it so much.

To freeze this recipe place again in an airtight container and place in freezer and it should last for up to 3-4 months.

To reheat let defrost in the refrigerator then reread in a wok or in the microwave, you may need to make a little more sauce if it seems to have soaked up most of it.

Is Lo Mein Healthy?

Lo mein can be occasionally healthy if you opt to make your own vegetarian lo mein such as this recipe I’m featuring today!

Using Better Than Bouillon’s vegetarian line does provide with you a more vegetarian based sauce as a base which is a better-for-you option than other brands.

The lo mein you order at a restaurant, such as a Chinese restaurant, will not be as healthy for you as it tends to be high in carbohydrates, sodium, and use lots of excess oil.

What is the difference between Chow Mein and Lo Mein?

Different methods are used to make the stir fry noodles for chow mein than for lo mein.

While both options will frequently use wheat-flour egg noodles, most chow mein dishes have had the noodles cooked a bit longer to create a more crispy texture than the softer lo mein noodles in the vegetable lo mein I’m featuring here today.

Tips and Tricks:

  • We use fresh vegetables for this recipe, but you can also use a vegetable blend from the freezer section at the grocer.
  • This recipe can be froze, see my tips above on how  you can do that.
  • You can easily make a double batch for serving larger crowds.
  • You will want to use the whole green onion in this recipe the green and the white part!

When making this recipe you’ll need to get the Roasted Garlic Base Better Than Bouillon brand along with the vegetables of your choice.

In addition, you’ll need your stir-fried noodles and the other ingredients listed below to whip up this delicious vegetarian based dish!
