10-Minute Chili Almond Butter Noodles

Introducing 10-Minute Chili Almond Butter Noodles! Simple. Quick. Spicy. And ridiculously delicious!

These 10-minute noodles are not fancy but pack a ton of flavor! From smoky Korean chili flakes to garlic, ginger, and almond butter, we’ve got an amazing bowl of noodles that is creamy, nutty, and comforting! Let’s do it!

10-Minute Chili Almond Butter Noodles

First, you want to cook the noodles, since that’s what will take the longest. I went with linguine, but spaghetti or fettuccine will work just as well.

While the noodles are cooking, we prepare the sauce. Aromatics like ginger, garlic, green onions, and shallot are sautéed for a couple of minutes in toasted sesame oil. Next, we add finely diced mushrooms for umami and a meaty texture.

Add Korean chili powder, soy sauce, and maple syrup to balance the spiciness. If you don’t have Korean chili powder on hand, feel free to use ground chili. The flavor will be slightly different, and you will have to decrease the amount, but it will still be delicious.

For a nutty flavor, I also added almond butter, taking the sauce to another level.

Finally, to dilute the sauce, we will use some of the noodles’ water. Using the noodles’ water brings saltiness and creaminess to the sauce, thanks to the leftover starch from the noodles! It’s almost a secret ingredient!

Toss the noodles with the sauce and serve with a mandatory squeeze of lime to round up the flavors and bring freshness!

These noodles are smoky, spicy, and so comforting! You can serve these alone or with tofu and vegetables on the side for a complete meal.
