  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced ginger
  • cooking oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds optional, for garnish
  • chopped fresh cilantro for serving


  • 1 tablespoon oyster sauce can substitute with vegetarian oyster flavored sauce
  • 2 teaspoons low sodium soy sauce can substitute with gluten free tamari or coconut aminos for paleo-friendly version

  • 1 teaspoon honey or dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes or Sriracha sauce optional, to taste


  1. If using fresh lo mein noodles, remove from package and separate loosely in a large bowl. If using dried pasta, cook noodles according to package directions, drain well and set aside.

Add prepared noodles and sauce; toss and cook until hot and evenly mixed, about 2 minutes more.
