  • 8 oz. rice noodles (I use 3 ramen cakes*)
  • 2 green onions
  • 1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • Optional for serving: fresh cilantro, peanuts, cashews, etc.

For the hoisin-peanut sauce:

  • 3 Tbsp. hoisin sauce (gluten-free if desired**)
  • 1 Tbsp. peanut butter (creamy, natural)
  • 1 tsp. pure maple syrup
  • 1-2 Tbsp. water (to thin)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • Optional: freshly grated ginger


  • Cook noodles according to package instructions.
  • Meanwhile, thinly slice green onions. Set aside.
  • Make the sauce: In a medium bowl, add all sauce ingredients and whisk until smooth and peanut butter is combined.
  • When noodles are cooked, drain, and immediately add hot noodles to sauce. Add green onions. Gently toss to combine. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top.
  • Serve immediately. Garnish with fresh cilantro, cashews, peanuts, or a splash of tamari if desired.


*Noodles: My favorite is Lotus Foods "Millet & Brown Rice" ramen noodles. Or simply use 8 oz. of your favorite rice noodles or other noodles.
**For a gluten-free hoisin sauce: I use San-J brand.
Leftovers: Noodles will thicken and become sticky as they sit. If reheating leftovers, I add a splash of water first to help rehydrate.
