This easy recipe for gluten free sesame noodles is made in under 30 minutes. It is a vegetarian recipe, but you could add cooked chicken for more protein. It has a creamy sauce that is made with peanut butter, sesame oil and tahini butter. I like to serve these warm noodles with lots of chopped veggies.
These make a quick weeknight meal. While the noodles are cooking in my stock pot, I make the sauce in a saucepan on medium heat. I add the sesame oil, coconut aminos, rice wine vinegar, tahini butter, peanut butter, sugar, red curry paste and sesame seeds to the saucepan. Then I whisk them together and heat the ingredients until they are just starting to simmer.
When the noodles are cooked according to the packaging directions I save a cup of the water and then drain the noodles. I add the noodles to my sauce pan of sauce and stir everything together. If the sauce is a bit thick I add some of the reserved water until I get the consistency I want.
You can adjust the spiciness of this sauce by adding a little more or a little less red curry paste. I serve the noodles hot with lots of chopped scallions, julienned carrots, chopped sugar snap peas and sliced red bell pepper on top.
Is tahini butter gluten free?
Yes, it should be if you are purchasing tahini butter that is only made with sesame seeds. I would still check the packaging to make sure it says it's gluten free. I like Mighty Sesame Co. Tahini. There's is vegan, gluten free certified and non GMO.
What are the health benefits of sesame seeds?
- They are a good source of fiber. Three tablespoons of sesame seeds provides 3.5 grams of fiber which is 12% of the suggested daily intake.
- They're a good source of B Vitamins (thiamine, niacin and B6).
- Provide nutrients that support your immune system that include: zinc, selenium, copper, iron, Vitamin B6 and Vitamin E

In a stock pot cook the rice noodles per the instructions on the package. Reserve one cup of liquid before draining the noodles and returning them to the stock pot.
If you are serving this with chicken breasts you can either cook them in the air fryer at 390 degrees for 18 minutes or fry them in a pan. Be sure to check that they are completely done and the internal temperature is at least 165 degrees.
In a saucepan add the sesame oil, coconut aminos, rice wine vinegar, tahini butter, peanut butter, sugar, red curry paste, sesame seeds and minced garlic. Whisk together on medium heat until the sauce just begins to simmer.
