My husband really fancied noodles last week, and so we set to work cooking up an incredibly anglicised chow mein, adapting where we needed to with ingredients in our fridge and cupboards. I’m not going to pretend for a minute that there is anything at all authentic about this recipe – but I’m not truly sure that most of the vegan Chinese food I’ve eaten in the U.K. has been all that authentic, either.

What this is more, is a vegetable and noodle chow mein inspired dish. And it’s really tasty. The noodles we used were Blue Dragon Wholemeal Noodle Nests, but other vegan noodles will work well.

If nutrition information is your thing, I’ve included an approximation of this at the bottom of the page. If this is not for you, skip over this bit.

I’d love to see your creations should you make this recipe – do go ahead and tag me @wholemealmum or #wholemealmum, so I can see!
