Chilled Sesame Peanut Noodles Recipe

Gluten-Free Chilled Sesame Peanut Noodles

If you can boil water, own a knife to chop a few things, and own a food processor (or a whisk and give it a bit of elbow grease), you can make this simple, delicious Chilled Sesame Peanut Noodles recipe!

I’m serious – it’s that easy. Made with a trio of Kikkoman products – sesame oil, gluten-free soy sauce, and rice vinegar – and a few other sauce ingredients like chili garlic sauce and peanut butter, this dish is packed with flavor. What I love most about it is its versatility. Not a fan of tofu? No problem! Sub the tofu with cooked, cubed chicken. Or if you want to keep the dish vegetarian and protein-rich without the tofu, sub out the regular gluten-free spaghetti with a legume pasta like chickpea spaghetti.

Quick, simple, and flavorful – this dish is a true triple threat!
