  • 5 scallions (white and green parts), thinly sliced
  • 3 large cloves garlic (or 5 small), finely minced
  • 1/4 inch piece of ginger, finely minced
  • 1 head broccoli, chopped into small florets
  • 2 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups chopped cabbage
  • 1 lb Lo Mein style noodles (Spaghetti or Fettucini can be substituted)
  • For the sauce:
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon (5 tablespoons) sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 cup cashews, roughly chopped
  • 1 lime (optional garnish)


  1. Bring a pot of salted water (it should taste like the ocean) to a boil
  2. While the water is heating, prep all your vegetables
  3. When the water is boiling, add your noodles and cook according to package instruction and drain with a colander
  4. Meanwhile, heat a wok over high heat with a little coconut oil (vegetable or canola will work as well)
  5. Add your scallions, garlic, and ginger and saute for a few minutes
  6. Add the rest of the vegetables: broccoli, carrots, and cabbage
  7. Stir continuously for about 10 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender but still have a bite
  8. For the sauce, combine everything into a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds-1 minute, or until the sugar is dissolved
  9. Add the noodles in with the veggies and add the sauce
  10. Stir until everything is combined and the sauce evenly coats all the noodles
  11. Saute for another minute or two and then remove from the heat
  12. For a few optional non-traditional additions, top with cashews and squeeze a little bit of fresh lime juice to taste over each bowl
  13. *If you don’t have a wok, a large saute pan will work too!
