Get the Recipe: Chilli Garlic Noodles (Vegan)

Make these chilli garlic noodles for a weeknight dinner that's ready in 10 minutes. This Thai-inspired recipe is made with noodles and a spicy, tangy sauce for a vegan meal that's also easy to make gluten-free.


  • 5 oz rice noodles, or any other vegan noodles of your choice
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 red chilli, de-seeded and chopped finely
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 large bell pepper, de-seeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup tamari
  • 2 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp sriracha
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch
  • 2 cups Pak Choi, packed


  • Saucepan
  • Wok or frying pan


  • Cook the noodles according to instructions on packaging. This usually takes between 5 and 10 minutes.
  • Heat the sesame oil in a wok or pan over a medium-high heat for around 30 seconds, before adding the garlic, fresh chillies, onion and bell pepper. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until softened and fragrant.
  • Add the tamari, rice vinegar tomato paste, coconut sugar and sriracha to a bowl and whisk together thoroughly. In a different bowl, whisk together the cornstarch with water.
  • Add the sauce and the cornstarch slurry to the wok/pan, and mix together.
  • Drain and rinse the noodles, then add them to the wok/pan as well together with the Pak Choi leaves. Toss together using kitchen tongs for a few minutes, until the sauce thickens, the noodles are evenly coated, and the Pak Choi leaves wilt.
  • Serve with chilli flakes, and enjoy!



  • These noodles keep well in the fridge for up to 3 days. You can either eat them cold, or warm them up in the microwave. 
  • To make this recipe gluten-free, use a gluten-free noodle variety and tamari instead of soy sauce.
