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!

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!

ramen is the perfect meal for this season of life. it’s cozy, comforting, filling, and satisfying. 🙏🏼 needless to say, I’ve been eating tons of ramen bowls lately, and I’m extra excited to share this one with you, a take on Japanese miso ramen: Miso Noodles with Smoky Tempeh (using @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh) and Kale. 🥬 🍜 #LightlifePartner⁣

this is kind of like two recipes in one, because this smoky tempeh is good on everything – in sandwiches, on salads, in grain bowls - it’s my go-to flavor when I’m making tempeh (especially for those who aren’t as far along on the tempeh train as I am.) the other recipe is the simplest miso ramen with kale, which you’ll be making over and over again. 👏🏼 also, you can simply sub in @lightlifefoods’ Smoky Tempeh product here, to save time!⁣

you can find @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh at @acmemarkets or @wholefoodsmarket, but use their Store Locator on their site to find out where it’s sold near you. 🛒⁣

recipe below 👇🏼👇🏼⁣

Miso Ramen with Smoky Tempeh and Kale⁣
Serves: 4⁣

Ingredients⁣
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil⁣
8-ounce package @lightlifefoods Original Tempeh, cubed⁣
¼ cup soy sauce, low sodium⁣
2 tablespoons maple syrup⁣
¼ teaspoon smoked paprika⁣
1 teaspoon liquid smoke⁣
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder⁣
2 garlic cloves, minced⁣
1-inch knob ginger, minced⁣
4 cups vegetable broth⁣
1 tablespoon miso paste⁣
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce⁣
4 cups finely chopped kale⁣
12 ounces ramen noodles⁣

Directions⁣
Heat half the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the tempeh slices and cook for 5 minutes until browned, stirring frequently.⁣

While tempeh cooks, stir together ¼ cup of water, soy sauce, maple syrup, smoked paprika, liquid smoke, and garlic powder. Pour that over the cooked tempeh and stir to coat. Let cook another 5 minutes or until moisture is evaporated and tempeh is browned. Set aside on a parchment lined plate.⁣

Heat the remaining oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is shimmering, add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute or until fragrant. Add the broth and 2 cups of water and bring to a boil over high heat.

taco mondays are the new taco tuesdays! 🌮 but seriously... every day is a good day for a taco, right? 🥑⁣

the whole family loved these tonight, so I figured I'd share the recipe with you all! for so long, I over-thought fish tacos and now, I've got them down to a pretty easy science: slaw in an avocado sauce, a garnish, and pan seared cod. oh, and some quality corn tortillas, warmed in a skillet first (it makes such a difference!) 👇🏼⁣

cod fish tacos⁣
makes 9 tacos (3 servings) ⁣

ingredients ⁣
~ 1 ripe avocado⁣
~ 1 lime, juiced⁣
~ 1 small garlic clove, sliced⁣
~ 1 large handful cilantro⁣
~ salt and pepper⁣
~ 4 cups coleslaw mix ⁣
~ 9 corn tortillas ⁣
~ avocado oil ⁣
~ 3 boneless, skinless cod filets (about 3-ounces each) ⁣
~ 2/3 cup pineapple mango salsa (or similar) ⁣

directions⁣
in a food processor, place the avocado, lime, garlic, cilantro, 1/4 cup water, and season with salt and pepper and process until smooth. place the coleslaw in a large bowl and add the avocado crema and toss to coat. set aside.⁣

warm the tortillas in a large skillet and set aside, 3 on a plate. ⁣

add the oil to the skillet and once oil is hot, add the cod. cook for 5 minutes, flip, and cook another 5 minutes or until the cod flakes and is opaque. using a spatula, break the cod up into pieces. divide the cod onto the warmed tortillas. top with avocado slaw and mango salsa. serve.⁣
