Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Cook the ramen

Bring a medium sauce pot of water to a boil. Stir in the ramen and cook until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain and rinse with cold water. While the water is heating and the ramen is cooking, prepare your protein.

2

Prep your protein

  • Chicken, steak, or pork strips: Cut a small corner from the packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer the meat to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Shrimp or scallops: Rinse and drain the shrimp or scallops. Pat dry on a paper-towel-lined plate. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  • Tofu: Pat the tofu dry with paper towels; cut into ½-inch cubes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Plant-based chicken: Pat the plant-based chicken dry with a paper towel; season with salt and pepper.

3

Cook your protein

In a wok or large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 to 3 teaspoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add your protein and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and just cooked through, 2 to 4 minutes for regular shrimp; 4 to 6 minutes for jumbo shrimp, scallops, steak, pork, tofu, or plant-based chicken; and 6 to 8 minutes for chicken. Transfer to a plate. Do not clean the pan. Meanwhile, prepare the vegetables.

4

Prep the vegetables; make the slurry

  • Thinly slice the celery on the diagonal.
  • Trim the root ends from the scallions; thinly slice the scallions, keeping the white and green parts separate. Set aside the white parts for the stir-fry and the green parts for garnish. 
  • Cut the zucchini in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ¼-inch-thick half-moons.
  • In a small bowl, using a fork or whisk, mix together the arrowroot powder and stir-fry blend to form a slurry.

5

Cook the vegetables; finish the chow mein

In the same pan used for your protein, if dry, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil. Warm over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Stir in the celery and white parts of the scallions and cook until crisp-tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the zucchini, season with salt and pepper, and cook until crisp-tender, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the ramen and carrots and cook until heated through, about 1 minute. 

Stir the arrowroot slurry to recombine, then add the slurry and your protein to the pan, toss to coat, and cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Transfer the chow mein to individual plates, garnish with the green parts of the scallions, and serve.
