Tahini Chili Oil Noodles

Watch how to make it here

This 5-minute tahini chili oil noodle is creamy, savory, and has a slight spicy kick to them. The perfect meal for those days when you don’t feel like cooking but want something satisfying.

A few notes:

  1. The dried sliced/knife-cut wheat flour noodles can be food in most Asian grocery stores. Look out for the wavy-shaped noodles.
  2. Any Chinese chili oil can be used in this recipe. My preferred brands are Lao Gan Ma Spicy Chili Crispy oil or Momofuku Chili Crunch.
  3. Tahini is what makes these noodles creamy. They can be found in most grocery stores. Tahini is different because it is made from raw sesame seeds while sesame paste is made from roasted sesame seeds.
  4. The fire-roasted red peppers used in this recipe were already prepared in a jar. These peppers used in this recipe are from Trader Joe’s.
  5. Although toppings are optional, they are highly recommended as they elevate the dish.
  6. This meal is best enjoyed immediately. It is not recommended to store as leftovers.

  1. This was fantastic! Wow, we were licking the bowl for the sauce. We didn’t have furikake at home so we just used everything bagel seasoning lol but it did the trick 🙂
