This 15 minute vegan garlic sesame noodles recipe is gluten-free, satisfying, healthy, and so easy to make! It's made with ginger, a little spicy and customizable with veggies. 


  • 8 oz rice noodles or spaghetti (gluten-free if preferred)
  • 2 cups snow peas
  • 2 green onions (sliced)
  • 1/4 cup tamari (sub for low sodium soy sauce)
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger (minced)
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp corn starch (sub for arrowroot)
  • 1 tsp Sriracha or hot sauce
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds (optional for topping)


  1. Cook the noodles according to package instructions; drain well.
  2. While the noodles are cooking, make the sauce by whisking together tamari, garlic, ginger, maple syrup, corn starch, sesame oil, and Sriracha in a small bowl and set aside.
  3. In a large pan or skillet over medium heat, pour the sauce and simmer for 1 minute until it thickens a little bit. Add the green onions and snow peas, cook for 2 more minutes.
  4. Add the cooked noodles and mix it around really well for 30 seconds, turn off the heat. 
  5. Garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds. 


Make sure to use low sodium soy sauce if subbing, regular soy sauce will be too salty!

Always adjust to taste, add more tamari or soy sauce if needed. If you like it very saucy, double the sauce.

Feel free to change up the vegetables but keep the proportions the same. 

Add tofu for protein and texture. 

To make it spicer, add more Sriracha or another favorite hot sauce.
