Vegetable Lo Mein Made with Homemade Vegan Pasta

So, I recently purchased pasta attachments for my Kitchen Aid mixer.  I wanted to try my hand at homemade pasta.  Also,  I had this craving of vegetable lo mein.

I got the recipe for homemade pasta* from a blog site called Vegan Dad.  Below is the recipe with a few modifications.

INGREDIENTS
Makes 1 lb
– 1 cup all
purpose flour
– 1 cup semolina flour
– dash of salt
– 1 tbsp olive oil
(optional)
– about 1/2 cup water (plus 1/4 cup extra)

Directions:
1. Put flours and salt in a food processor fitted with the blade attachment and process briefly to mix.
2. With motor running (around speed 6-8), drizzle in oil and then the water. You will notice that the flour will resemble fine bread crumbs as the liquid is added, then coarse bread crumbs, then it will begin to bunch together.
When it does this, it is ready.  I had to actually add more water because it wasn’t coming together.
3. Remove dough from processor and knead briefly until smooth. Pass through your pasta machine as per its instructions, dusting with semolina flour as needed.

Dry the pasta for 30-45 minutes.
Meanwhile, saute the vegetables.  I added 2 Tbsp canola oil and 1 Tbsp Sesame Oil.  I used 1 sliced red onion, 3 peeled and chopped carrots, 1 bag of snap peas, 2 red and green peppers each sliced and seeded, and 2 cups bean sprouts.  Once vegetables soften turn the heat to low.

Next, cook the pasta in boiling water with a little bit of salt.  Stir occassionally for 3-5 minutes until the pasta can stick to a woodened surface.

Drain the pasta.  Add to the vegetables and stir.  Add about 1/4-1/2 cup of soy sauce.  Not too much you don’t want it to be salty.  Remove from eat and rest for 5 minutes.

Then serve.

*Of course if you don’t want to make the pasta, purchase a 1lb box of whole wheat spaghetti.

It is very delicous, and can say it makes good leftovers. 🙂
