Daikon Noodle Vegetable Lo-Mein

Daikon Noodle Vegetable Lo-Mein

This was the first recipe I cooked since the Inspiralized cookbook published! I mean, I haven’t cooked since Tuesday, February 24th.

Unless I’ve been on vacation, I’ve never gone a whole week without cooking.

I couldn’t have asked for a better “pub week,” I still feel like my adrenaline is rushing. I feel like I’ve just begun!

Actually, I have another exciting announcement to make. The cookbook, the Inspiralizer, now what?!

Daikon Noodle Vegetable Lo-Mein

The blog will be shutting down at midnight today (EST) and “re-launching” around noon tomorrow (EST, again.)

I feel badly having to close down the website, especially at such an exciting time for Inspiralized, but it’s necessary.

Why?

WE’RE LAUNCHING A NEW WEBSITE!

Daikon Noodle Vegetable Lo-Mein

Yes, on top of releasing a cookbook, launching my own spiralizer and planning my wedding, I’ve also been coordinating the launch of a new look for Inspiralized – a newly designed, better website.

Most importantly, along with this revamped website, we’re officially launching pre-orders for The Inspiralizer. If you haven’t joined the pre-order list, click here to do so and you’ll be emailed with limited-time promotional offers, just for being the first to sign up.

Again, just like last week, I feel like it’s Christmas Eve. I know you’re going to love the new look and I can’t wait to show it to you.

In the meantime, you’re going to love today’s recipe – it’s easy and quick, but jam-packed with healthy flavor. If you can’t find daikon noodles, you can substitute in zucchini noodles. However, be careful when serving the noodles – make sure to use pasta tongs to let the excess moisture drip out into the wok.

This dish is exponentially easier to make with a wok. I recommend this wok, because it’s affordable and effective!

I was looking through some old recipes from when I first started blogging, and I was inspired to recreate them, using the spiralizin’ skills I’ve learned over the past two years. For example, today’s lo-mein recipe was inspired by this lo-mein, a mere three weeks into starting Inspiralized.

This lo-mein is an easy dinner idea especially if you’re participating in the #30daysinspiralized challenge (I hope you are!) Also, these noodles store well – the daikon doesn’t release much excess moisture and holds the flavors well.

What do you think of revamping older Inspiralized recipes? Should I do this more often?

  1. Excellent! And soooo pretty! I will double the sauce next time. The servings were very generous as well! This one’s a keeper! Thanks Ali!

  2. Just the right amount of heat, very good sauce.
    I will use this sause for other dishes too.

  3. Hey, really sorry but this recipe isn’t technically vegan as there is honey in the ingredients :(

    • Vegans could substitute “Bee Free Honey” if available where you shop. According to their website it’s available at Whole Foods, Sprouts, and other locations. I’ve tried it myself and it’s pretty close to the real deal IMO!

  4. I followed the recipe exactly and unfortunately didn’t care for this dish at all. I expected it to have a lot more flavor. Perhaps I should have doubled the sauce as Susan recommended. A lot of chewing with not much flavor reward. Oh well. My first failure from the Inspiralizer but I’m not discouraged.

  5. This was awesome. I made it last night and brought it to work for lunch. It reheated well and veggies were still crisp. I’ll definitely be making this again.

  6. Michele Pryse :

    Such a clean-tasting dish. Love the mix of vegetables and the sauce is lovely. What a neat trick to sub spiralized daikon for the noodles. A keeper, will definitely make again. Thank you.
