How to Make Asian Garlic Noodles

  • Cook the spaghetti. Cook the spaghetti according to the package directions until al dente.
  • Drain. Drain the spaghetti noodles.
  • Begin preparing the sauce. While the noodles are boiling, add the soy sauce, fish sauce, oyster sauce and sugar to a small bowl and mix to combine. Set aside.
  • Prepare the cooking skillet. Add the butter to a skillet and melt over medium low heat.
  • Add the oil. Add the extra virgin olive oil.
  • Cook the garlic and scallions. Add the minced garlic cloves and thinly sliced scallions and cook and stir for 2 to 3 minutes (or until just fragrant).

  • Toss. Add the spaghetti noodles and shredded Parmesan cheese and toss to combine.
  • Cook. Cook for one more minute (or until the noodles have soaked up the sauce).
  • Serve. Serve immediately.

Are Garlic Noodles Vegan?

Unfortunately, this particular Asian garlic noodle recipe is not vegan as it is. However, it’s quite easy to tweak the recipe in order to make it 100% vegan-friendly. Here are a couple of suggestions on how to make it work:

  • Use vegetarian oyster sauce as a replacement for oyster sauce; it’s made with mushrooms and mushroom extracts instead of oysters.
  • Use coconut aminos as a replacement for fish sauce.
  • And lastly, you can replace the butter with coconut oil.
