These spicy dragon noodles are not for the faint of heart! If you like spicy food then you have landed at the right blog. This quick vegetarian Chinese recipe is loaded with delicious chili and ginger and is sure to get that fire burning.
Just because it is tasty is not the only reason to add this recipe to your favorite list. It has a lot more health benefits as well. With dragon noodles, our focus is on their metabolism-boosting effects! If you want something spicy this one can fit the bill.
With chili garlic sauce and Sriracha, these dragon noodles have a lot of kick- personally I am not a huge fan of spice so I only used half sriracha to keep these dragons slightly spiced but even my son who doesn’t care for spice at all was able to eat them happily over milk nearby because he figured everyone could add more if they wanted.
To be clear: As I said earlier, these Spicy Dragon Noodles are NOT Faint Of Heart; if your idea of “fire” means adding some heat, or even moderate levels it’s there waiting here. If your idea means milder chilis please adjust accordingly.
But before eating these spicy dragon noodles make sure to consider other things – those alone won’t be enough! You need to add some additives to make them tasty!
- For this recipe, you need to buy fresh Udon noodles.
- Take a tablespoon of unsalted butter.
- A large egg which is beaten
- Also, take a pinch of red pepper flakes
- A tablespoon of brown sugar.
- A tablespoon of soy sauce
- A tablespoon of sriracha chili sauce
- A teaspoon rice wine vinegar
- A fresh cilantro
- And chopped scallions
How to Make Spicy Noodles?
- In a small bowl, whisk together brown sugar, soy sauce, chili sauce, and rice wine vinegar.
- Next, cook your udon noodles according to the package.
- Drain them and set them aside for now.
- In a medium skillet (nonstick works best), melt butter over medium heat then add your scrambled egg to the pan once it’s almost cooked enough; season with red pepper flakes when they’re added into the mix as well so that everything is seasoned properly at this point!
- Add in some of our thinned-down spicy udon noodles on top just before serving alongside fresh cilantro scallions!
How Can I make Dragon Noodles Tastier?
The vegetables that you can use are carrots and red peppers, but you can get creative with your own ingredients. Some ideas are zucchini, yellow squash, broccoli; or cabbage/cauliflower. I did not cook the vegetables at all during this recipe because they would become too mushy if cooked along with the chicken and noodles.
Instead of cooking them separately from what was being steamed in a pan (the Instant Pot method) which takes time to do properly-a pot-in-pot method fits perfectly here!
The veggies in noodles are still slightly crisp after going through pressure cooking so that really makes it better for people watching their carb intake but also great for those who don’t mind some crunchiness on their spaghetti noodle meal. The foil option is advised as well.
Sometimes soy sauce is too salty, so I buy low sodium soy sauce to use when I need a little less salt.
Sriracha is super spicy and goes a long way! You can always add more if you want it spicier at any point in the cooking process. Start with 1 tablespoon per serving of ingredients and stir before adding it into your dish.
I sliced boneless, skinless chicken thighs into bite-size pieces. They cooked perfectly at the same time as the noodles. You can also use chunks of chicken breasts or whole tenderloins instead of slices to make it a little moist and more tender.
What could Dragon Noodles do for a Person’s Metabolism?
Now, we’ll look at the ingredients in our spicy dragon noodles recipe and their potential impact on your diet. First, diet is related to weight loss because it can help you burn more or fewer calories. Slow metabolism = fewer calories burnt = more stored as fat while fast metabolic rate means they’re burned off faster and that body stores less of them as fat.
Unfortunately, many factors can affect coffee like genetics and hormones but there are still steps you have control over including introducing certain foods into your daily diet such as this healthy noodle recipe which contains plenty of spices (they might help boost your metabolic activity).
