Bang Bang Noodles - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

These Bang Bang Noodles pack a tasty, spicy kick and are the perfect combination of salty halloumi and sweet chilli sauce.

They’re really quick and easy to make which means they’re perfect for a midweek meal after a busy day at work. We’ve used halloumi in this dish to make it suitable for vegetarians, but it would also be delicious with a thinly sliced chicken breast instead of the cheese. If you choose to use chicken breast instead of the halloumi, then do make sure that you adjust the nutritional and calorie info accordingly!

Like your food with a bit of extra heat? Simply leave the seeds in your chilli or add some more chilli flakes to turn the spice up a notch. Similarly, if you prefer your food a bit milder, make sure to deseed the chilli as we’ve done and simply add less chilli flakes to suit your taste.

What diets are these Bang Bang Noodles suitable for?

These Bang Bang Noodles are suitable for vegetarian diets.

They can be made suitable for gluten free diets by swapping the following ingredients out for gluten free alternatives:

  • Soy sauce
  • Dried egg noodles

Please make sure to double or triple check all of your ingredients if you’re cooking for people with allergies.
