What are the Asian Garlic Noodles Ingredients?

Noodles 

I used spaghetti for this. But I have used Fettuccine Noodles also and those work well too. Love the chewy texture of this noodle. You can use linguine if you like.

Cooking Oil

You can use any kind. Although Sesame oil is preferred.

Fresh Produce

Garlic Cloves, and bell peppers. You can go ahead and add whatever vegetables you like to make it more “healthy”.

Condiments 

Soy Sauce

Sriracha or Sambel Olek

Vegetarian Hoisin Sauce– I keep a bottle of vegetarian Hoisin Sauce handy in my refrigerator all the time. It is easily available at whole foods. And may be at your local grocery store or Asian store. If you do not have it and want to make it right away, then Ketchup works so good too. Trust me.

Salt and Pepper

Water or Vegetable Broth

Garnish

Green Scallions and sesame seeds if you like

Kitchen Gadgets

Measuring Cups and Spoons

Chopping Board and Knife

Kitchen stirring spoon

Kitchen Colander

6 quart Instant Pot

Instant Pot Liner

 

 

What kind of Noodles can I use for this recipe?

I have used Spaghetti in this recipe. But you can totally use fettuccine or linguine for this recipe. I have tried this recipe with all 3 kinds of noodles and it doesn not disappoint with either of them.

What can I use in place of Vegetarian Hoisin Sauce?

In case you do not have vegetarian hoisin, use Ketchup instead. Believe me that sweet and tart taste of ketchup brings it together.

What kind of Vegetables can I use for this recipe?

Although this recipe does not need any vegetables, but you can personalize it with the vegetables.

I often use classic coleslaw that has finely shredded cabbage and carrots in it. 

Broccoli, carrots, green beans, bell peppers are some vegetables that you can use in the recipe.

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?

Yes you can. Make it ahead of time and re-heat and use when ready to eat.

Can I half the recipe?

Yes you can make this recipe with 8 ounce noodles instead of 1 pound (16 ounce) noodles.

Does the time vary when I half or double the quantity?

The time will remain the same. Most of the long pasta/noodles take 10-12 minutes on gas top. Therefore for Instant pot cooking, we will half the time to 5 minutes and follow QPR (quick pressure release).

Can I make it on gas top?

This recipe can easily be made on gas -top. Boil the pasta separately and drain. Saute the garlic and add sauces followed by boiled pasta. Toss it all together. 

If you are using any vegetables then you will add those after sauteeing the garlic. Finish with the garnish and serve hot.

How to re-heat the leftovers?

You can either microwave it with a spritz of water or re-heat on gas top in a large pan with little water.

What can I serve it with?

You can serve it with General Tso’s Vegan Meatballs, Hot & Sour Soup or Wonton Soup.

How to make Asian Garlic Noodles in Instant Pot?

I have tried making this recipe in 2 different ways and I am going to share both ways. You can pick and choose the one you want. But my favorite is definitely number 1 which is a 2 step recipe.

My favorite way to cook Garlic Noodles in Instant Pot recipe

  1. Place the Instant Pot Liner inside the 6 quart Instant Pot and plug it in. 
  2. Break 1 lb spaghetti or fettuccine into halves. Add these to the inner pot in a matted order or fan order. Check this you-tube from my channel to watch how I place my noodles in the IP. Add 4 cups of water and Pressure cook on high followed by QPR. For this recipe you want al-dente noodles. My packet read 8-10 minutes on gas top. I cooked for 3 minutes followed by QPR which takes about 2 minutes. Therefore the noodles get about 5 minutes in cooking including the pressure release time.
  3. Drain the spaghetti and separate the noodles with a fork. Set aside. Wipe the bottom of the Inner Pot with Kitchen Towel. Put it back inside the instant pot.
  4. Press Saute and set on medium. When the screen displays HOT, add oil to it. After few seconds, add chopped garlic and saute for a 30-45 seconds till garlic brown nicely. Add bell peppers and saute further for 1 minute. Now add Soy Sauce, Vegetarian Hoisin Sauce-, Sriracha, Salt and Pepper. Give a good stir with a stirrer.
  5. Now add the cooked spaghetti (noodles of your choice) back to the pot. Add chopped scallions. Give it all a good toss using the tongs. 
  6. Sprinkle sesame seeds and serve warm.

Another way of making this recipe as a One Pot Recipe

  1. Place the Instant Pot Liner inside the 6 quart Instant Pot and plug it in. 
  2. Press Saute and set on medium. When the screen displays HOT, add oil to it. After few seconds, add chopped garlic and saute for a 30-45 seconds till garlic brown nicely. Add bell peppers and saute further for 1 minute. Now add Soy Sauce, Vegetarian Hoisin Sauce-, Sriracha, Salt and Pepper. Give a good stir with a stirrer.
  3. Cancel Saute. Add the spaghetti to the pot on top of the sauces. Add 4 cups of water/broth and Pressure cook on high for 4 minutes. Follow QPR. Open the lid. Separate the noodles with a fork. Add scallions and sesame seeds and toss together with tongs. Serve warm.

      1. Wow, very flavorful dish. The whole family loved it, from husband to my 2 year old, and the kids in between. Simple to put together and most ingredients had on hand.

      2. This recipe with simple ingredients is so freaking flavorful! I cooked the pasta with all sauces and fried garlic in instant pot. Added fried veggies after opening the lid. This will be my week night to go recipe for sure. Thank you!

      3. This was so easy and was a HUGE hit in my house…my only modifications were that I added shredded carrots and snap peas. This is in our new rotation now. Love it!

          1. Wonderful recipe. I cook this on rotation. Only modification is to add carrots and cabbage. It’s quick to cook in mornings for kids lunch boxes. Stays great in thermos container.

      4. This was such an easy and simple recipe to make for dinner last night! And best of all, my picky kids loved it!

      5. I’m always amazed at all of the recipes that you can make in your instant pot,and this one might be my favourite yet!! This is definitely going to be on my regular dinner rotation, thanks so much for the recipe 🙂

      6. These look so good, I can’t wait to make them! By sesame oil, do you mean regular sesame oil (hard to find here) or toasted sesame oil?

      7. What happens if I use regular hoisin sauce? I don’t think I’ve ever seen vegetarian hoisin sauce but I like most people have the regular hoisin. Thank you for the recipe. I’m excited to try it!
