Szechuan Spiced Late Night Noodles

December 17

These Szechuan noodles are the perfect late night craving! Loaded with easy ingredients, rich flavours and a slightly mouth-numbing kick from Szechuan peppers, it’ll satisfy all your hunger needs. I use a plant-based mince in this, but you can easily substitute for any mince meat of your choice.

Method
  1. Heat a large non stick pan over a medium heat, add the ground and fry for 5-6 minutes until golden, add garlic, five spice, szechuan peppercorns and stir through the mince to coat along with the sugar.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk the hoisin, soy and peanut butter along with 100ml water, to create a smooth sauce, stir through the contents of the pan to evenly coat the mince, allow to simmer for 4-5 minutes until slightly reduced then stir through the cooked noodles and pak choi. Serve in bowls sprinkled with the remaining chilli along with the spring onions, coriander and peanuts.
