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 creammy sauce that is made with peanut butter, sesame oil and tahini butter. I like to serve these warm noodles with lots of chopped veggies.



2 - 8 ounce packages Rice Noodles
1/4 cup Sesame Oil
4 Tbsp. Coconut Aminos
2 Tbsp. Rice Wine Vinegar
2 Tbsp. Tahini Butter
2 Tbsp. Smooth Peanut Butter
1 Tbsp. Granulated Sugar
2 tsp. Thai Kitchen Red Curry Paste
2 tsp. Sesame Seeds, toasted
1 Tbsp. Minced Garlic
1 - package Scallions, thinly sliced
1 - package julienned or shredded Carrots
1 - package Sugar Snap Peas, chopped
2 Red Bell Peppers, sliced

3 Chicken Breasts, cooked and sliced (optional)


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.

Add the sauce to the rice noodles and stir together. If the sauce is too thick add some of the reserved water until you are happy with the consistency.

Serve the noodles hot with sliced scallions, julienned carrots, chopped sugar snap peas, sliced red bell peppers and sliced chicken breast on top.


Any of Lotus Foods rice noodles will work with this recipe. I prefer this brand because the noodles hold their shape really well.
