Vegetarian Vermicelli | #MeatlessMonday | TastyBits


Gristle & Gossip’s “TastyBits” feature quick and delicious meatless or seafood recipes that we love! This edition is dedicated to my favorite “Meatless Monday” dish – Vegetarian Vermicelli!

This quick and easy Vegetarian Vermicelli makes Monday night meals a breeze. Although I have listed the ingredients below feel free to incorporate your favorite vegetables into this dish.

Blogger Chungah Rhee of Damn Delicious has a similar lo mein recipe, that I would follow when I first started making this dish at home (about a year ago). Now that I’ve gotten the recipe down, I embellish a bit, by adding my favorite veggies and spices into the mix.

One thing that makes this meatless Monday dish even more spectacular, is that I would bet you already have most (if not all) of the ingredients in your pantry.  The sauce is what makes this Vegetarian Vermicelli pure gold. Any recipe that calls for Sriracha is a winner in my book!

Fresh vegetables are the best for this recipe. Though i’m sure frozen veggies will work too, but the color may night be as vibrant. and texture as crunchy. Veggies like spinach, green peas and green beans are great adds as well.
