Vegetable Lo Mein
  • 4 large zucchini
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced, or 3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp grated fresh ginger, or 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 red, yellow, or orange bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 1 cup shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 2 Tsp toasted sesame oil
  • 4 Tbsp reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • ground black pepper to taste
  • hot sauce (optional)
  • 1 scallion (green onion), sliced, for garnish
  • To make zucchini noodles, cut off the ends of the zucchini and julienne using a spiral slicer to create noodle strands. If you don't have a spiral slicer, use a vegetable peeler or knife. (You can peel the zucchini or leave the skin intact.) Wrap the noodle strands in a few layers of paper towels and squeeze to remove some of the moisture.
  • Liberally coat a large skillet with nonstick oil spray and warm it over medium heat. Saute the onion, stirring frequently, until it is slightly browned.
  • Add the garlic, ginger, and belle pepper. Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes, or until the pepper is tender. Add the carrot, chicken, sesame oil, and 2 tablespoons of the soy sauce. Continue to cook for an additional 3 minutes.
  • Finally, add the zucchini and the remaining 2 tablespoons soy sauce. Cook for about 2 minutes, or until zucchini noodles are tender. Add pepper and hot sauce, if desired. Serve with scallions on top.
