Gluten-Free & Vegan Peanut Noodles

Gluten-free, Vegan, Plant-based diet and yet, still satisfying! With a choice of cooking methods – FBC or pan frying the noodles at the end.


Gluten-Free & Vegan Peanut Noodles


In a gallon freezer bag –

  • 8 ounces rice noodles (stir fry noodle size), broken in half

Mix at home, pack in a pint freezer bag or small container –


Bring 4 cups water to boil, take out ½ cup, stir into peanut mixture till smooth, cover and set aside. Add the remaining water to the ice noodles (for FBC) or add the noodles to water in the pot. Let sit for time on package (about 8 minutes for mine). Drain water off, toss with sauce until coated.

For a tasty touch, heat a non-stick 2 Liter pot over a medium flame, add the noodles, stir-fry until sizzling and turning golden. Dish up. Drizzle on more sweet chili sauce if desired (source it in packets here).

Serves 2 large or 3 smaller portions.


The sauce carries fine for a day, due to the salt and vinegar. For more protein, bring along cooked and dried garbanzo beans (soak to rehydrate), a block of extra-firm shelf-stable tofu (dice and panfry, add to noodles) or if you eat meat, add in a can or pouch of gluten-free chicken. If pan-frying the noodles, a non-stick pan, that is very slick, is important. Otherwise the noodles will burn onto your pot!

  1. What in the sauce would make it not last longer on the trail than 1 day? Just asking, because I often go out for several days at a time, or make up cache buckets for longer trips.

  2. Personally, I would carry it for a couple of days without worrying – but I’d leave the onion powder out. Otherwise, yeah, the sauce has a LOT of vinegar and salt in it to preserve it.
