I love dan dan noodles, but traditional noodle dishes are anything but vegan or healthy. So, my dan dan noodle recipe is different from the classic dish. Originating from Chinese Sichuan cuisine, dan dan noodles have a spicy sauce that usually contains preserved vegetables, chili oil, Sichuan pepper, minced pork, and scallions.
