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.

5 servings, about 2 cups each


  • 8 ounces whole-wheat spaghetti or lo mein noodles

  • ½ cup dry sherry

  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest

  • 2 tablespoons lime juice

  • 3 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce

  • 2 tablespoons chile-garlic sauce, or to taste

  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon canola oil plus 1 tablespoon, divided

  • 4 large eggs, beaten

  • 3 cups sliced shiitake mushroom caps

  • 2 red, orange or yellow bell peppers, sliced

  • 6 cups thinly sliced green cabbage

  • 1 bunch 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.


Equipment: 14-inch flat-bottom wok

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
