Vegetable Lo Mein

1/2 box of cooked angel hair pasta
3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
1 cup of snow peas
2-3 carrots, cut into matchsticks
1/2 a bell pepper (any color), sliced
1 small onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 inch piece of ginger, grated
2 cups fresh bean sprouts
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 cup vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
4 tablespoons hoisin
2 tablespoons soy sauce

peanut sauce (optional)

Heat the oil in a large skillet and saute the snow peas, carrots, bell pepper, onion, garlic and ginger. Add in the bean sprouts and cook for a minute or two.

In a small bowl, stir together the cornstarch and broth then pour over the veggies. Now stir in the cayenne, curry powder, hoison, and soy sauce, then allow to cook a few minutes until the sauce has thickened.

Have the cooked angel hair ready in a large serving bowl and pour the veggies and sauce over the pasta. Combine thoroughly then eat up!

(If you like, set out a small bowl of peanut sauce and add to your taste)

*lol* Hair Angels :) Angel hair pasta is like really thin spaghetti, but you can use any sort of Asian pasta for lo mein.

I haven't made it for ages, thanks for the inspiration!
