Sichuan Dan Dan Noodles has been a classic dish on the streets of Chengdu for decades. The noodles are named after the pole that the walking street vendors carried (dandan) when selling this dish with two baskets of noodles and sauce attached at either end. Rather than the traditional broth style dish, ours is more like the American Chinese version of Dandan noodles where tender boiled egg noodles are topped with crispy mince with a slightly smoky and spicy chilli oil drizzle.

Our 20 minute recipe

  1. Make your own chilli oil

    Sprinkle the CHILLI OIL MIX into a large pan and set it over a medium-low heat. Stir for about 40 secs to lightly toast the spices (careful not to let them burn), then add 4 tbsps of oil. Mix together for 20 secs then pour it into a small bowl to let it infuse. (This is your chilli oil for later.)

  2. Fry the quorn mince

    Heat a little oil in the same pan over high heat and fry the quorn mince for 2 mins. 

    Add the DAN DAN STOCK and mix it in, then continue to fry the mince, breaking it up into small pieces with your spatula for 3-4 mins.

    Meanwhile, get a pot of water on to boil for the noodles later on. 

    Add the SICHUAN PASTE to the quorn along with 1 tbsp honey and stir fry for 3 mins. (If you need a little more oil, take some from your chilli oil bowl.) 

    Stir the spring onions into the quorn, then turn the heat off and move onto step 3.

  3. Boil the noodles

    Put the noodles into the boiling water and cook for 3 mins. 

    Add the broccoli to the noodles and cook for 3 more mins until both are tender, then drain in a sieve. 

    Tip the noodles and veg into the quorn, turn the heat back on to medium and mix it all up.

  4. Serve!

    Serve the noodles in bowls and drizzle the chilli oil (take it lightly if you don't like too much heat) over the noodles. Sprinkle some sesame seeds on top and/or a tiny drizzle of sesame oil over it (if using).

Delicious! Easy to make vegetarian too!

Added a little water while cooking and did not add as much mince as recommended instead a added some veg. As a result the meal did not taste dry at all and I really enjoyed it. It was one of my favourite.

This was so tasteless and dry! We threw it away!

Beth - 16th November 2020

Really bland! I added soy sauce/more chilli oil/even a bit of sriracha - but it was just so dry. First meal from SimplyCook I barely ate half of.

Really enjoyed this one! Not massively spicy or tasty but it was fantastic, and pretty easy to cook!

Tasty enough but surprisingly bland, the chilli oil wasn’t very spicy either. A nice dish but for the spice box to be worth it, needs more flavour.

Jen - 29th October 2020

Smelt awesome but was bland and mushy :( super disappointed as we were really looking forward to it. Won't be ordering it again, sorry.
