Chongqing Noodles

Cooks in 7 Minutes Difficulty Easy 0 comments
Spicy, savory, delicious Chongqing Noodles with bok choy, mushrooms, shrimp, chili oil, and noodles.

YUM! That is all that needs to be said about Chongqing noodles.

Chongqing noodles are the perfect any time of day! Fast, easy, and so delicious. What more could a person want in a dish. They’re spicy, savory, and so satiating. The fresh cilantro and bok choy, paired with the deeply aromatic chili oil, ginger, garlic, and vinegar. Seriously, just yum!

Lets face it, right now, more than ever before, we’re all home (hopefully) being responsible citizens and lowering the curve – so that means we’re either excited to cook or in pajamas (penguin pajamas if you’re me) at 4:50 pm thinking you need more pizza. In cases like the latter, the last thing you want to do is spend an hour in the kitchen, and for that reason, this dish is perfection! The noodles are chewy, the broth is amazingly complex in it’s flavor profile thanks to the homemade chili oil and the veggies add the perfect texture and pop in flavor. Start to finish this dish takes me about 10-15 minutes simply because of how often I make it.

I love Indian food with all of my heart and could eat it every single day, and for weeks on end I do, but ugh, it really does take forever if you want something wickedly fabulous. For that reason alone that I end up doing a lot of fusion Asian cuisine. Vietnamese, Chinese, and Thai dishes are often super fast to make, amazingly delicious, and akin to the Indian palate. So especially on days like today when I seem to have my lost my fucks to give, this noodle dish comes to the rescue. Hot, hearty, flavorful, and always a crowd pleaser!
