One Pot Coconut Gochujang Noodles

A big, steaming bowl of saucy noodles is always one of my favourite kinds of fakeaways. This lovely creamy gochujang version is made in one pot to save on washing up and takes less than 30 minutes. It’s the kind of recipe that's easy enough to throw together after a long, busy day but still feels special and comforting. The star here is the flavour-bomb paste of spicy sweet gochujang, soy sauce and chilli oil which provides a fab base to the sauce.


Based on 4 servings, adjust as needed.

Step 1

Add the gochujang paste, chilli oil and soy sauce to a small bowl. Use a fork to mix well, then set aside. This is your "flavour paste".

Step 2

Set a saucepan over medium heat, then add the flavour paste and cook, stirring for 2 minutes, to let the flavours intensify. Pour in the coconut milk and vegetable stock, then stir to combine into a pale orange broth. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes.

Step 3

While the broth is simmering, slice your pak choi into thin strips and finely slice your spring onions.

Step 4

After 10 minutes, add the noodles straight into the broth to cook (use your packet to guide you here). Once the noodles are cooked, add the pak choi and stir through the broth for another minute, then remove the pot from the heat.

Step 5

Divide the noodles and sauce between bowls, then top with spring onions. Serve with lime wedges on the side and an extra drizzle of chilli oil if you like.
