Grilled Vegetable Lo Mein Recipe

Yesterday was the first official day of summer, and with the start of summer comes the start of grilling season!

When most people think of grilling, they think meats, like Coffee Crusted Tri Tip, Chili Lime Shrimp, or Chicken Fajita Skewers. While I love all of these meaty dishes on the grill, I also love grilled vegetables!

Over the years I’ve created a couple of different grilled vegetable recipes on the blog like Grilled Vegetable Skewers and Grilled Romaine Salads. This year, I wanted to create even more recipes that I could incorporate grilled vegetables into!

Since noodle bowls are all the rage these days, I decided to combine grilled vegetables in an Asian style noodle bowl and thus Grilled Vegetable Lo Mein was born!
