Sweet and Sour Chilli Garlic Noodles
These Sweet and Sour Chilli Garlic Noodles are made with wide rice noodles, lime juice, garlic, and a spicy sauce. They’re vegan, gluten-free and take only 15 minutes to make!
Savoury noodles bursting with flavour
I will never get tired of creating new Asian-style noodle recipes.
Last month was this Northern-Style Thai Vegan Coconut Soup (which is loaded with noodles), and in January it was these Life-Changing Peanut Butter Noodles.
Today, I bring you these Sweet and Sour Chilli Garlic Noodles! Filled with a few different flavours and classic Asian ingredients like sweet chilli sauce, soy sauce (light and dark), sriracha, lime juice, and garlic. This recipe only calls for 2 cloves of garlic, but let’s be real – you can use as many as you’d like.
The perfect balance of sweet and sour
These noodles are my latest obsession. They have that perfect balance of sweet from the sweet chilli sauce, salty from the soy sauce, and sour from the lime juice.
Noodle dishes are a staple in my kitchen because they are SO quick and easy to make. It’s always handy to have a couple packs of rice noodles on hand, as well as some key Asian sauces in the kitchen.
Some sauces I always make sure to have on hand are light soy sauce, dark soy sauce, sesame oil, sriracha, hoisin sauce, sweet chilli sauce, and rice vinegar. With these sauces, you can create so much magic in the kitchen!
Having rice noodles and these sauces in the kitchen will be your saviour when you need to throw together a meal in less than 15 minutes, or are running low on groceries but still need to eat dinner.
If you’re wondering the difference between light and dark soy sauce, dark soy sauce is aged for a longer period of time and is sweeter and less salty in taste. It has a really nice bold & rich flavour which tastes amazing in this dish!
How to make these noodles
First, cook the rice noodles until they’re al dente. Heat crushed garlic in the pan, add all of the sauce ingredients, and coat the noodles in the sauce. Heat everything up in the pan until warmed and ready to eat.
Top with sliced green onions and sesame seeds – if you’re making more noodles than 8oz of them, I would recommend making double the sauce. You can also double the sauce anyways – it’s just that good!

If you can’t find dark soy sauce you can substitute with regular soy sauce
I love using wide rice noodles for this recipe, but you can use any shape or size rice noodles!
Depending on how many rice noodles you use, you may need to add more or less sauce.
I left this recipe simple with no veggies, but add any of your favourite vegetables to this dish!
You can also add some tofu or tempeh to this dish to make it higher in protein.

Super easy and tasty. I didn’t have Sriracha sauce. So I used red pepper flakes. It worked fine but the heat was a little inconsistent.
So happy you enjoyed it Sue! 🙂
