This Gluten-Free Vegan Chow Mein is all about – balancing the vegetables with noodles and the flavourful sauce is the success of this stunning dish. I replaced tofu for the chicken in this recipe to keep it vegetarian. However, it’s a filling meal even without the chicken.

Chow Mein is an easy stir-fry dinner

Stir-frys are a quick way to cook healthy meals because the ingredients retain most of their flavour, texture and nutrients. The idea is to toss the ingredients continually, so they stir-fry rather than fry.

You can vary the vegetables to your liking, but Nappa cabbage, carrots, zucchini, bean sprouts and green onions bring out the ethnic chow mein flavour. This gluten-free noodle dish mixes the deliciously flavoured veggies with chow mein noodles and tofu.

Easy way to make Chow Mein


This vegan chow mein recipe is for a tasty dish made with vegetables and noodles, briefly stir-fried in a tasty sauce. When it comes to any stir-fry, it is all about prepping the ingredients in advance.

Once you start cooking, everything goes very quickly. So, before you start, bring out all the ingredients you will need to make the stir-fry.

Clean and cut all the veggies and set them aside until you are ready to cook. For the noodles, you should also cook them before you start making the chow mein. Now that you are prepared, it goes very quickly, no need to panic because you have everything ready to go.

When I am making chow mein for dinner, I prep all my veggies well in advance, that way, I can have the entire meal on the table in under fifteen minutes. The plant based gluten-free noodle dish comes together quickly for a satisfying, Asian inspired delicious meal.
