Chile-Lime Veggie Noodles

Chile-Lime Veggie Noodles

We love the bright flavor that lime and chile-garlic sauce give to this quick and easy veggie-and-noodle stir-fry. Multicolored peppers make this recipe festive, while the addition of eggs makes it a satisfying vegetarian supper.

Total Time

30 minutes


  • 8ounces whole-wheat spaghetti or lo mein noodles
  • 1/2cup dry sherry
  • 1teaspoon freshly grated lime zest
  • 2tablespoons lime juice
  • 3tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2tablespoons chile-garlic sauce, or to taste
  • 1tablespoon light brown sugar
  • 1teaspoon canola oil plus 1 tablespoon, divided
  • 4large eggs, beaten
  • 3cups sliced shiitake mushroom caps
  • 2red, orange or yellow bell peppers, sliced
  • 6cups thinly sliced green cabbage
  • 1bunch scallions, sliced, divided


  1. Cook spaghetti (or noodles) according to package directions. Drain.
  2. Combine sherry, lime zest and juice, soy sauce, chile-garlic sauce and brown sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. Heat a 14-inch flat-bottom wok over high heat. Add 1 teaspoon oil and swirl to coat the pan. Add eggs and tilt wok to create an omelet. Cook until set, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Turn the omelet over and cook 30 seconds more. Remove to a clean cutting board and cut into strips.
  4. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil, mushrooms and bell peppers to the wok; stir-fry for 2 minutes. Add cabbage. Reserve about 2 tablespoons of the scallions for garnish and add the rest to the wok. Stir-fry until all the vegetables are tender-crisp, about 2 minutes more. Add the chile-lime sauce and the noodles; toss to coat. Add the omelet strips and stir-fry until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes more. Serve sprinkled with the reserved scallions.
