Easy Garlic Noodles

  • 5 72 grams instant noodles Note 1
  • 8 cloves garlic skins peeled, Note 2
  • ½ cup peanut oil
  • 1 tbs sesame oil
  • 1 tbs chilli flakes
  • ½ cup shallots green onions (approx 3) Note 3
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese
  • coriander to garnish (optional)


Easy Garlic Noodles

  • Bring a medium size saucepan to the boil, add noodles and cook according to packet instructions. Drain and reserve ½ cup of the noodle water.
  • Add peanut oil, sliced garlic and chilli flakes to a medium sized flat bottom sauce pan. cook for approx 5 mins, stirring occasionally.
  • Add cooked noodles to the cooked garlic, pour in reserved noodle water, drizzle over sesame oil and stir to combine.
  • Portion and plate noodles, garnish with green onions, coriander and parmesan.



  • Note 1 I use 5 packets of 72 gram instant (2 minute) noodles. You can use your favourite noodles. We don't use the seasoning or packet of dried ingredients, rather, just the noodles. 
  • Note 2 I don't recommend using minced garlic. It is all squishy and you loose the 'garlic texture'. For this dish, it is worth it to take the extra couple of mins, a sharp knife and finely slice your garlic! 
  • Note 3 You can either add the shallots (green onions) in the final few moments of the cook time for the garlic and chilli or raw at the end as garnish. Some people won't like the taste of raw green onions (shallots) as it can be bitter and harsh. Cooking the onions for a couple of mins will take away this sharpness.
