  • 3/4 cup 3/4 Fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems, chopped

  • 3 pcs 3 Scallions, sliced on a bias

  • 6 ounces 6 Edamame, frozen and defrosted

  • 1/2 tsp 1/2 Sea salt

  • Garlic Chili Oil
  • 1/3 cup 1/3 Neutral-flavored oil (such as grapeseed oil, avocado oil, canola oil)

  • 2 tsp 2 Sichuan chile flakes or red pepper flakes

  • 2 tbsps 2 White sesame seeds

  • 6 cloves 6 Garlic, minced or crushed with a garlic press

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 Dry-roasted peanuts, roughly chopped (unsalted or salted, either is fine)

  • Sauce
  • 3 tbsp 3 Soy sauce or tamari

  • 2 1/2 tbsp 2 1/2 Chinese black vinegar**

  • 1 tbsp 1 Maple syrup or agave nectar


  • Cook udon noodles in a large pot of salted boiling water for 2 minutes until tender but chewy. Drain and rinse with cold water, then transfer to a large bowl.
  • Prep other ingredients, including mincing garlic, chopping peanuts and cilantro, slicing bell peppers and scallions, and tossing edamame with sea salt.
  • Make the Garlic Chili Oil by heating oil in a small-medium saucepan over medium heat. Add chile flakes, sesame seeds, garlic, and peanuts to a bowl. Once the oil is hot, pour it over the mixture and let sit for 1 minute. Stir in soy sauce, vinegar, and maple syrup or agave.
  • Pour half of the chili oil-soy sauce mixture over the noodles and reserve the rest for later. Add the bell peppers, edamame, cilantro, and scallions, and toss well. Add a packet of turmeric for additional kick.
  • Serve the vegan chili garlic noodles at room temperature or chilled after refrigerating.
