This is a recipe for the true fan of Asian cuisine.

Not only does it feature crunchy, bean-filled glass noodles, but there’s also a layer of crispy pan-fried tofu to boot.

There’s also a sweet and spicy sauce on top that will make your tastebuds dance.

It’s more than just delicious; it’s also health-conscious, too!

2. Rice Noodles Stir Fry

This recipe is just like the classic stir-fry, only I’ve added in a few extra ingredients!

It has ground beef, mushrooms, bell peppers, and noodles.

I love how it adds some texture to the dish, but you can leave it out if you want a lighter meal.

This is perfect for work or school chow down nights.

3. Chicken Pho

The best thing about chicken pho is that you can add whatever you like to it.

There are no restrictions on ingredients, and your customization provides endless possibilities.

The broth is made by stirring ground beef with a few spices, then letting it simmer for around 30 minutes.

As far as the veggies go, there’s plenty of rice noodles and bean sprouts to get going.

While this isn’t a traditional pho recipe, that doesn’t mean it isn’t delicious!

4. Thai Chicken Noodle Soup

Thai chicken noodle soup is a comforting dish that’ll keep you warm and satisfied.

This recipe uses chicken broth to enhance the flavors of the veggies, which is such a great option for those on low-carb diets.

The secret to this recipe’s success is using organic meaty chicken thighs instead of chicken breast.

They have a richer flavor and make this dish far more filling!

5. Saucy Gochujang Noodles

Gochujang noodles are a Korean classic that’s a must-try if you’re looking for new Asian eats.

The sauce is the star here, so be sure to keep it bubbly.

These noodles have a slightly sweet, savory taste that’s hard not to love.

 It’s easy enough for beginners but can also throw seasoned cooks for a loop.

Serve this with an array of meats and veggies to make it one heck of a meal.

It’s ready in under 20 minutes.

Serve with steamed veggies or a side salad for an appetizer or main meal.

7. Vietnamese Noodle Salad With Tangy Dressing

This Vietnamese salad is a unique way to enjoy a tasty bowl of noodles.

The tangy, sweet-savory dressing complements the flavors of the noodles perfectly.

It has all the best components of simple but delicious Vietnamese cuisine, such as fresh herbs, crunchy peanuts, and crisp lettuce.

This dish is an excellent choice for those who love savory dishes with a bit of sweetness.

8. Thai Red Curry Rice Noodles

I love this recipe for Thai curry rice noodles.

The flavors are so well balanced, the rice is tender and flavorful, and the zucchini provides a healthy dose of color.

It’s a simple dish you can make in minutes, perfect for busy weeknights.

And it’s always super yummy even if you don’t have any meat.

9. Miso Noodle Soup

This soup is comfort food at its finest.

 It’s creamy, cheesy, and insanely tasty.

The broth is the secret to this soup’s success.

 It’s made with stock from Hitachi chicken stocks and miso paste, making it super flavorful.

You need to make a big batch of this miso noodle soup because you’ll want to eat it all for dinner on a regular basis.

10. Pad See Ew (Thai Stir-Fried Noodles)

Pad See Ew is a popular Thai dish that’s so simple to make and full of flavor.

You’ll love how the peanut butter sauce infuses all of the flavors in each bite.

16. Gluten Free Ramen

Ramen is a popular Japanese dish that’s so simple to make.

Packed with noodles, veggies, and protein-rich broth, it’s easy enough to make at home.

This gluten-free recipe takes the traditional ramen flavors and adds in some healthy Asian ingredients like soy sauce and sesame oil.

While you could definitely make this at home, I highly recommend bringing a friend over for a fun night out.

You can even serve it up as an appetizer for your next party!

17. Chicken Chow Mein

This chicken chow mein is the perfect comfort food.

 It’s packed with yummy ingredients that make you feel like you are traveling back in time.

It’s also a quick and easy meal that can be made for dinner, lunch, or breakfast.

You can use whatever protein you have on hand to make this dish, but I highly recommend using chicken.

Once the sauce is ready, the noodles will sink to the bottom of the pan.

 That way, they don’t get soggy and wasted.

18. Chicken And Rice Vermicelli Stir Fry

Have a busy schedule? No problem.

 This chicken and rice vermicelli stir fry has you covered.

It’s easy to make and is loaded with flavor!

19. Drunken Noodles (Pad Kee Mao)

This is a dish that people have been making since the 1600s.

 It’s a classic Cantonese favorite, and it’s delicious.

What makes this dish so yummy?

Well, first of all, it features noodles made of glutinous rice.

It has a cream sauce and lots of crunchy chopped peanuts to add extra flavor.

Okay, so the noodles are what make this dish so addictive but they’re not the only things that make it taste amazing.

The rice noodles themselves are also loaded with flavour.

 They’re seasoned with chili oil and vinegar for added kick!

When you take all these elements together, you get one mouthwatering dish that’ll surely leave your tastebuds on fire.

20. Vegetarian Singapore Noodles

The name of this dish is extremely misleading.

 These are actually not noodles, but vermicelli strands, which can be found in Asian grocery stores.

Although, you could use long-grain rice or any kind of starch for the “noodles.”

If you’re looking for a vegetarian dish to enjoy with your friends and family on a cold evening, this recipe is for you!

It has plenty of texture from the crunchy bell peppers and leafy greens as well as a delicious sauce that’ll make your tastebuds dance.

21. Teriyaki Noodles

The best thing about teriyaki noodles is that you can make them with whatever basic ingredients you already have on hand.

This recipe brings together a few of my favorite Asian ingredients.

 And it’s delicious!

You’ll need to cook the noodles in sauce until they’re tender and coated with marinade.

 Then, pop them in the oven to finish cooking.

22. Microwave Mushroom Cheung Fun (Vegan Rice Noodle Rolls)

These mushroom cheung fun are crunchy, savory, and 100% plant-based.

You can make them with any type of rice noodles you like.

But I recommend brown rice for the most texture, which is what I used here (though white will work as well).

They’re best served with some sweet chili sauce on the side.

 But if you want to make them even more indulgent, try serving them with steamed veggies in a bowl.


23. One-Skillet Singapore Rice Noodles

If you’re looking for a simple and delicious Thai-inspired dish, this is it.

This recipe uses rice vermicelli noodles made from sticky rice.

It’s an excellent base for any number of curries or stir-fries.

The star of the show here is the peanut sauce.

 It has a balance of sweet and salty that will delight your tastebuds.

24. Gluten Free Lo Mein

Lo mein is a Chinese dish that’s simmered in beef broth.

While it’s mainly served with noodles and veggies, you can add whatever you like to make it even more flavorful.

I love to use gluten-free noodles for this because they hold up well to the sauce, which is what makes lo mein so addictive.

You can also stuff your lo mein with whatever you like.

 I usually go for chicken or shrimp but anything will work.

25. Potsticker Noodle Bowls

Potsticker noodle bowls are one of my favorite takeout options.

They’re simple yet delicious, and they’re a great way to get your veggies in.

This recipe is ideal for busy weeknights.

 That means you can make it ahead of time and freeze leftovers.

Just add them to the pot when you want some more vegan goodness!
