Gluten-Free SunButter Sesame Noodles
The simplicity in this SunButter Sesame Noodles recipe is only rivaled by its bold flavors. With the tiniest amount of chopping (just green onions and lime) and minimal cooking skills required (if you can boil water, you can make this), this dish will be a welcome addition to your repertoire.
I like to make this for a quick and simple lunch or I’ll whip it up for dinner and add a bit of shredded rotisserie chicken on top. You can also add a side salad or veggie dish alongside it, if you’d like. If so, I suggest my Roasted Broccoli Coleslaw, which has some of the same sauce ingredients as this noodle dish.
Speaking of the sauce, I used a very simple combination of SunButter (sunflower seed butter), lime juice, tamari (or soy sauce), honey, sesame oil, and chili garlic sauce. Many of these ingredients might already be in your pantry or fridge, especially if you like making Asian dishes.
If you have 20 minutes to spare, this dish can be on your table! Enjoy!
- Kosher or fine sea salt
- 12 ounces gluten-free spaghetti
- 1 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
- 4 green onions , thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
- ½ cup creamy SunButter
- ¼ cup fresh lime juice
- 3 tablespoons tamari or gluten-free soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoon sesame oil
- 1-2 tablespoons chili garlic sauce
- Lime wedges for serving , if desired
Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Cook the spaghetti according to the package directions. Drain, reserving some of the pasta cooking water.
While the pasta is cooking, make the topping and sauce.
Make the topping by combining the cilantro, green onions, and sesame seeds in a small bowl.
Make the sauce by combining the SunButter, lime juice, tamari, honey, sesame oil, and chili garlic sauce in a small saucepan. Heat over medium-low heat until the SunButter is fully warmed and melted. Stir until smooth.
Put the spaghetti back into the pot it was cooked in, add the SunButter sesame sauce and toss to coat. Add some of the reserved pasta cooking water, a little at a time, to thin the sauce as needed. Put in a serving bowl and top with the cilantro topping. Serve immediately with lime wedges, if desired.
