Spicy Garlic Noodles 11

There is no better recipe than one that comes together in mere minutes, and it is these Spicy Garlic Noodles. A viral TikTok recipe inspired me and you know some of the best content is on that app, albeit the endless scrolling. This noodle recipe takes its cue from Szechuan noodles, where it’s spicy, tangy, and garlicky. It’s the absolute perfect combination and makes use of stuff you already have in your kitchen.

The only thing I urge you to do is get the thickest and chewiest noodles you can find—the wider the noodle, the better the mouthfeel and slurp-worthy goodness. I got these knife-cut noodles that did the job pretty well.
