Skuxx Food | 10-minute Garlic Chilli Oil Noodles

If you’re like me and your algorithm is purely food videos, chances are you will have seen this recipe on TikTok. Here’s my take on garlic chilli oil noodles. The perfect recipe to whip up for lunch, as it literally only takes 10 minutes. 

Serves 1 

100 grams of any noodles, I like to use flat rice noodles 
3 tablespoons of oil, preferably vegetable or rice bran 
1-2 cloves of garlic, minced 
2 teaspoons of ginger, finely grated 
2 spring onions, roughly chopped 
2 tablespoons of soy sauce 
2 tablespoons of Chinese Zhenjiang (“Black Vinegar”) or rice wine vinegar 
1 teaspoon of sesame seeds 
½-1 teaspoon of chilli flakes, depending on your spice preference
Optional: 1-2 teaspoons of chilli oil, depending on your spice preference


Cook noodles according to packet instructions. 

Meanwhile, add 3 tablespoons of oil to a separate pot on a medium-high heat. 

In a bowl, mix together the remaining ingredients. 

After 4-5 minutes, when the oil is sizzling, pour it over the ingredients in the bowl and mix together. 

When the noodles are cooked, drain them and pour into the bowl with the rest of the ingredients. Mix well to combine, garnish with more spring onion and chilli oil and eat while they are hot. Thank me later.
