Garlic Chili Oil Noodles/Lao Gan Ma Noodles
These noodles are my go-to for a quick and flavorful meal! They take less than 15 minutes to make and are made with ingredients that I always keep on hand.
- 2 oz cooked noodles (I like to use Ocean's Halo Ramen Noodles)
- 2 tsp neutral cooking oil (I use avocado oil)
- 3 cloves garlic thinly sliced
- 1 tbsp white part of scallions chopped
- 2 tbsp soy sauce
- 2 tbsp mirin
- 2 tbsp Lao Gan Ma spicy chili crisp (found at your local Asian market)
- 1 tsp kashmiri chili powder
- 1 tbsp green part of scallions chopped (to garnish)
- ½ tbsp sesame seeds (to garnish)
- 1 tsp white pepper powder (to garnish)
Heat up oil on a pan on medium heat.
Add the garlic and white part of scallions to the pan and sauté until the garlic starts to turn translucent.
Add in the chili oil, soy sauce, and the mirin and sauté for a minute or two until the sauce reduces a little bit.
Add in the kashmiri chili powder and the cooked noodles and mix it all together.
Plate the noodles and top with green scallions, white pepper powder, and sesame seeds, and enjoy while hot!
- You can also add in 2 tbsp of saké with the soy sauce and mirin for a little extra depth!
- If you don't have Kashmiri chili powder, you can substitute paprika instead.
- If you want to make them spicier, add in red pepper flakes to the oil with the garlic and white part of scallions.
