Dandan Noodles

Our quick and easy gluten free Dandan noodle hack - low on effort, high on taste. You can make this as easy or as complex as you like. We like to use gluten free spaghetti to replace the traditional wheat or egg noodles, but you can use whatever you prefer. Try making the chilli oil if you want an extra spicy sichuan kick and you have the time - don't have time? use a pre bought one. No preserved mustard greens? use kimchi or omit
