Lo Mein is one of our favorite vegetarian dinners, so trying Instant Pot Lo Mein was something we were excited to try!
Instant Pot Lo Mein
If you don't have an Instant Pot yet, make sure you check for deals (grab it when it's under $100 here)! If you have an Instant Pot but haven't taken it out of the box yet, this dish is a great one to start with. It's simple, and you can switch some of the spices up a bit if you want, without messing anything up.
2 cups partially cooked rice noodles (I use precooked Kame brand Thai Rice Noodles)
1/3 cup sliced carrots
1/3 cup chopped broccoli
1/3 cup snow peas
1/3 cup fresh spinach leaves
1/2 cup soy sauce – reduced sodium
1/2 cup water or veggie broth
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tsp garlic
1 tbs corn starch
1/2 tsp fresh ginger
pepper to taste
Pour 1/2 cup water in your Instant Pot, and cover with noodles and chopped veggies except for spinach.
Mix up soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, corn starch, ginger, and pepper. Add to noodle mixture.
Close cooker lid, set to high pressure, and cook for 2 minutes. (If using uncooked noodles, cook for 4). Use QUICK RELEASE.
Stir in spinach as soon as you open the lid, then serve. Sauce is very watery at first, but will thicken when cooking.
