Thai Cabbage Lo Mein | Sweet Pea Living | Plant Based Food | Vegan

My husband is a huge fan of Thai food–me, not so much. I’ve always found the flavors of Pad Thai to taste a little bit like wet dog. Is it just me? Regardless, I have finally found a Thai dish that I love! I was inspired a few weeks ago when we were at Riot Fest in Grant Park. There was a tiny Thai food stand that had the most delightful vegan lo mein. I instantly knew that I had to recreate the recipe for Sweet Pea Living and I am so glad that I did. This has become a weekly staple for our dinners and I hope it will become one for you too!

Red cabbage is easily my favorite ingredient in this recipe. Not only is this vegetable delicious, but it also has some impressive health qualities that you probably are not aware of. Red cabbage is rich in thiamin, riboflavin, folate, calcium, manganese, magnesium, iron, and potassium, as well as vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, vitamin K, dietary fiber, and the B vitamins. These vitamins help fight against cancer cells, aid in weight loss, boost your immune system, and protect against alzheimer’s disease (Organic Facts). With all these awesome health benefits, I try to incorporate more red cabbage into our diets.

Even though the vegetables are the star of this recipe, I cannot forget about our noodles! For this recipe, I added Thai Kitchen Stir-Fry Rice Noodles (affiliate link). I prefer this brand because it has simple ingredients (rice and water) and is not high in fat, sodium, carbs, or calories. These are an easy way to enhance the recipe and still keep it healthy and clean! If you haven’t tried these yet, I highly encourage you to do so in this recipe.
