What Ingredients do I need?
- Garlic: The flavor powerhouse! Freshly minced garlic brings a rich and savory taste, setting the stage for a delicious noodle experience.
- Tamari: Think of it as the umami conductor. Tamari adds a savory, soy-based depth to our dish, ensuring a satisfying flavor in every bite. This is my favorite organic tamari!
- Rice Vinegar: A touch of brightness! Rice vinegar adds a hint of acidity, balancing the savory and spicy notes for a well-rounded taste.
- Chili Flakes: Spice it up! Chili flakes bring the heat, allowing you to customize the dish to your preferred spice level.
- Green Scallions: The freshness factor! Both the white and green parts of the scallions add a mild onion flavor and a visually appealing touch.
- High-Quality Veggie Broth: The flavor base! A good veggie broth provides a savory foundation, letting all the other ingredients shine in harmony. I’ve always ONLY trusted Pacific Veggie Broth!
- Chili Oil: The secret kick! Drizzle chili oil for an extra layer of heat and a touch of luxurious richness to complete the flavor profile.

20 minute Spicy Chili Garlic Noodles
Rice Ramen - I used the whole bag (4 ramen pouches)
1-1.5 tbs avocado oil (optional - omit to make it oil-free)
4 cloves garlic - minced
1.5 cups scallions (white parts separated and green part separated)
3.5 tbsp Tamari
2 tsp rice vinegar
1/2 cup organic veggie broth
1-1.5 tbsp chili flakes (adjust according to taste)
1 tbsp hot chili oil (optional - omit to make it oil-free)
Cook noodles according to package instructions (tip: use chopsticks to separate the noodles and prevent them from sticking to each other)
Chop your scallions, separating the white parts and green parts.
In a deep pan or wok, add the oil, white parts of the scallions, and garlic - saute for 2-3 minutes on medium heat. Be sure to keep mixing so the garlic doesn’t burn.
Add the chili flakes and saute for another 2 minutes
Let the sauce simmer for 5-7 minutes on medium-low heat. If it looks a little on the thicker side, add a tbsp of broth at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
Add the cooked ramen noodles and toss until they are well combined with the sauce.
Add the chili oil on top, toss again until well incorporated
Garnish with the green parts of the scallions and enjoy :)
