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.
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 10 mins

Ingredients
  

  • 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)

Instructions
 

  • 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!

Notes

  • 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.
