  • Heat up a pot of water to boil the noodles. Follow the instructions on the package. I used Ocean's Halo Ramen Noodles which are clean.
  • Slice 10 cloves of garlic lengthwise.
  • Drain the noodles and rinse with cold water. Reserve a cup of starchy pasta water for later.

Cook Chili Garlic Noodles

  • Heat up a wok on medium heat. Once hot, add oil followed by sliced garlic.
  • Saute the garlic for roughly 2 minutes until you can smell the burnt garlic.
  • Lower heat all the way. Add soy sauce.
  • Add chili vinegar or rice wine vinegar. I used Ching's Chili Vinegar.
  • Add Trader Joe's Chili Onion Crunch. Try and add more crunch than oil.
  • Increase heat to medium and stir. This is what you should have.
  • Add ramen noodles. Work quick and toss well.
  • Now add another tbsp of chili onion crunch.
  • Add scallions and 1/4 cup of starchy noodle water. Turn off the stove.
  • Finish with fresh cilantro leaves. Add a pinch of salt.


for gluten-free - replace ramen noodles with rice noodles or any other gluten-free noodles. Also, make sure you use gluten-free soy or tamari.
