Vegetarian Chow Mein

This is my favourite Chinese dish, I always eat this at the restaurant and it's vegetarian.

Basically you need 2 things. The egg noodles and the vegetable mix. Let's start with the egg noodles.

1) Egg noodles

You need to find yourself these thin dried egg noodles. Any brand is ok. I use the Sau Tao Egg Noodle brand.

Boil them in water for 5 minutes until they are loosened up. Strain them until dry, then fry them in sunflower oil until they are crispy. Don't fry them too long. That's the first part.

2) Vegetable mix

You will need fried tofu, blanched broccoli, shitake, green vegetables, sliced carrots. Anything will do. Put a good amount of oil in your wok and add all your ingredients. Stir fry them while adding some salt and pepper. Also add water to create a base for the soy sauce. After cooking it for several minutes you will add the soy sauce. I use a mixture of oyster sauce, dark soy sauce, sesame oil and light soy sauce. When the taste is ok, lower the heat and add a potato flour/water mixture to thicken the sauce. It's all experimental. Just try it. What you can also do is add all the ingredients together and then pour the sauce in the vegetable mix all together.

These are the sauces that I use.

Wan Ja Shan Vegetarian Oyster Sauce
Kimlan Light Soy Sauce
Lee Kum Kee Dark Soy Sauce
Potato Flour to Thicken Sauce
Then you just pour the sauce on top of the fried egg noodles and it's done!
