Szechuan Noodles

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Kozmic Blues

This spicy Asian inspired dish is absolutely delicious. I saw this made on one of Ina Garten's cooking shows and immediately HAD to try it. I omitted the oil called for in the original recipe and replaced it with water instead. I also gave alternate ingredients to replace the honey as a sweetener in order to make this vegan friendly. Hope you like it!

The flavor of this sauce is FANTASTIC, but I would make 2 changes: less garlic and less water. When I make this again I will probably leave the water out and then add as needed. My sauce was soupy even after adding some cornstarch. I used gluten-free spaghetti and added some broccoli florets during the last few minutes of cooking. I used the agave nectar option and subbed sri racha for the hot chili oil. I agree with Elisa72 that the crunch of the almost-cooked peppers and scallions is lovely. I also added some mung bean sprouts. All in all this is a nice fast, easy, and delicious meal! Made for Veg*an Swap, June 2010
