So excited for you to try these Gluten-Free Lo Mein Noodles!

Sometimes you just want a big bowl of Lo Mein and, as it’s not a common gluten-free offering at restaurants, luckily it’s easy to whip up one that tastes just as good, if not better!

Quick and easy to make, loaded with veggies, this Gluten-Free Veggie Lo Mein is a real win any night of the week.

We make this often because it’s great flavor and can be made with any vegetables you like or have on hand.

Some of our favorite veggies to use in this dish are carrots, yellow squash, red peppers, broccolini (broccolini is like a more thinner and tender version of broccoli) and bok choy.

So here’s how you make it..

All you need:

3-4 cups chopped veggies of choice

gluten-free spaghetti

green onions

a tablespoon or two of mirin

and an easy lo mein sauce.

The lo mein sauce is super easy and is just:

gluten-free tamari (or soy sauce)

a little sugar

and corn starch for thickening whisked together.

And the dish come together really quickly.

While the pasta water comes to a boil, cut your vegetables.

Then the while the pasta cooks, saute the vegetables and whisk together the sauce.

Remember to serve some pasta water before draining the pasta.

You can use this water to thicken the lo mein sauce when the noodles, sauce and veggies cook up together.

Easy Lo Mein Sauce

  • 6 tablespoons Gluten-free tamari or soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon corn starch optional, but we prefer a thicker sauce so add the cornstarch

Lo mein

  • 12 ounces gluten-free Spaghetti noodles prepared al dente according to package
  • 1-2 tablespoons sesame oil enough to just cover base of pan
  • 1 bunch green onions chopped (separate green parts from white parts)
  • 3-4 cups julienne cut or chopped vegetables Here I used carrots, yellow squash, red pepper, mushroom, broccolini, and bok choy
  • 1-2 tablespoons mirin



  • If you haven't already, bring a large pot of water to a boil and at the same time you start sauteing the vegetables, start cooking the pasta.
  • Before draining noodles, reserve 1 cup of pasta water so that you have the option to add into your lo mein if you need. Drain noodles and set aside.

Easy Lo Mein Sauce

  • In a liquid measuring cup or small bowl, whisk all the sauce ingredients together until well combined. Set aside.

Lo Mein

  • Heat the sesame oil in a large skillet or wok. When oil is hot, add the white parts of green onions and saute for about 1 minute or until starting to get tender. Add the vegetables. Stir fry until crisp-tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Add and stir in the mirin, loosening any browned bits up off the bottom of the pan.
  • Whisk sauce once again, then add the cooked noodles and sauce to the vegetables, still over medium low heat.
  • Toss to combine and cook, stirring, over medium heat to let sauce thicken a bit, about 1 minute, adding some reserved water as needed to get the desired sauce color and consistency.
  • Remove from heat. Stir in green parts of onions.
  • Serve and enjoy!

Note: If adding an additional protein - tofu or chicken - quickly stir fry the protein before the vegetables, set aside, then add back into the pan with the noodles.

      I made this last night and both my husband and I loved it! He added some shredded chicken to his and I kept mine vegetarian. I used red pepper, baby corn, zucchini, bok choy, and water chestnuts. As soon as my husband tried it, he said it could be added to the rotation!

    2. This is the best lo mein recipe I’ve found to date. I love that i had everything for it already in my kitchen. Easy, loaded with veggies, and a hit with my whole family! 10/10

      Such a great recipe. I have tried many on this site and am so thankful I found it. I have a young baby at home and am able to make these meals easily.

    4. This may be a new favorite of mine!!! Made it for the first time last week and have already made it again! The flavor is amazing and makes enough for leftovers for my husband and myself! Love this recipe!!! I definitely added more vegetables than instructed but it still worked out great!!!

      This recipe is so good! It’s become a weekly staple in our house and everyone enjoys it, including our 3 and 6 yr olds. Thank you!

      Oh wow! I’ve been wanting to make this since I saw it on IG a few weeks ago. Finally had a chance tonight and it is AWESOME! I loved it! I only wish I’d added more veggies but my skillet couldn’t hold more! I used Rice Noodles and I can’t stop picking at it. Didn’t add protein but had grilled chicken with it on the side. Delicious! I used all the sauce but only half the cornstarch as I like the thinner quality. Thank you!!! Your recipes are always so good and easy to make!

      1. Great! So happy you loved it and glad you were able to adapt the recipe to your tastes so that it was perfect for you! That’s exactly what I want! And thanks so much for making our recipes and letting me know what you think 🙂

    7. This recipe is amazing!.. everything came together so quickly and the kids loved it!… my 5yr old is an extremely picky celiac and vegetables are always a challenge…he could not get enough of the veggies in this dish! Will definitely be making this again… and AGAIN!

    8. I’ve made this many times and never commented. Made again today and as
      always myself along with my husband really
      like it! I’ve used regular spaghetti noodles and today used whole grain noodles and both were great. Can you make other Asian recipes (we really like Asian food) hahahah. Jk but thanks for the recipe!

      1. Thanks so much Nadia! Happy to hear they are a regular in your dinner rotation too! And yes! We love Asian food too! Is there a particular dish you’re looking for? Have you tried our General Tso’s chickpeas? We love that one too!

      Made this recipe this week. I thought I followed the recipe properly but it was a little bland. Kids added lots more soy sauce and everyone loved it. Will def make again.

    14. Just made this so we have it ready for lunch. Added some chicken I had left over too. Cleaned out our fridge. I love the diversity: add red pepper flakes, change up the veggies, …
