A quick and easy noodle dish

On the nights when you’re tired of cooking, easy noodles to the rescue! When I’m feeling lazy, Asian rice noodle dishes tend to be one of my main go-to’s!

The noodles cook up so quickly, and you can add any sauce and veggies you like. Just like that, you’ve got yourself a healthy and fresh dinner ready in minutes!

These Spicy Sichuan Noodles feature sichuan peppercorns, peanut butter, and chilli flakes to fill this dish with bold and vibrant flavours. Plus, if you’re always in the mood for spicy dishes (like me), this Spicy Baked Peanut Butter Tofu and this Spicy Thai Vegan Ramen will be right up your alley!

Tips to making this recipe perfectly

  • I kept this recipe pretty simple, without that many add-ins. However, feel free to add in your favourite veggies or tofu, such as broccoli or spinach.
  • If you can’t find sichuan peppercorns, you can simply use regular chili pepper flakes in this recipe. (However, if you are able to find them, I highly recommend using them for some amazing flavour!)
  • While the noodles are cooking, make the sauce ahead of time! It’s easy to pour over the noodles once they’re ready.

  • 1/2 pack rice noodles (8oz)
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts
  • Garlic sprouts (can sub sliced green onion)
  • 1 handful cashews, roughly chopped



  1. Place the rice noodles in a bowl on warm water and let sit for 5-10 minutes to soak while you prepare the sauce.
  2. Mix all the sauce ingredients together in a small bowl until combined, set aside.
  3. Add about 1/4 cup of water to a large pan on medium heat until the water begins to bubble. Add your rice noodles stirring until they absorb the water, then repeating, adding a few more tablespoons of water at a time until the noodles are soft, but still have a bit of a bite.
  4. Reduce heat to medium low and add the sauce, bean sprouts and garlic sprouts to the pan and stir until combined.
  5. The noodles should be soft but still chewy. If they are too hard simply add a bit more water and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  6. Pour into a bowl and top with chopped cashews.
