Recreate a vegan version of the favorite Chinese dish, cold spicy Szechuan noodles, similar to the spicy Dan Dan noodles.
By Elaine Luo
This vegan version of Szechuan-style cold noodles is known as Szechuan Liangmian. With a long history, it is been known as one of most famous Szechuan street snack. Generally, this can be known as a simplified and cold version of Dan Dan Noodles. However it will never disappoint you by the taste.
In China, most people love noodles, all kinds of noodles like hand-pulled, homemade fresh noodles, sliced noodles and dried noodles with hundreds of seasonings and toppings. The traditionally most famous and popular noodles dishes for Chinese people is Dan Dan Noodles (find my recipe here), Wuhan hot noodles, Beijing style Zhajiang noodles (find my recipe here) and Sliced noodles from Shanxi province.
Traditionally, we have one type of fresh noodles made especially for Szechuan cold noodles and Wuhan hot noodles. The common feature is the addition of alkali (Soda). Soda can help to keep the noodles non-sticky after cooking. Since it may be difficult to find outside China, I recommend using thin round egg noodles instead.Print
