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.

Daikon Noodle Vegetable Lo-Mein

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?

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!
Anonymous says:
Just the right amount of heat, very good sauce. I will use this sause for other dishes too.
Daisy says:
Hey, really sorry but this recipe isn't technically vegan as there is honey in the ingredients :(
Ingrid says:
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!
Audrey says:
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.
Angela says:
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.
Ali Maffucci says:
So happy you enjoyed it!! Thank you for the feedback, Angela.
Michele Pryse says:
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.
Joe says:
I made this tonight. My wife and I loved it! I doubled the sauce because my radish was huge. The flavors were perfect. Thank you for sharing!

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
