These Sesame Noodles are the perfect easy, vegan packable lunch or dinner! Made with fresh vegetables and a tangy + creamy sesame sauce.


Hello friends! Today I’m here to share this game-changing recipe that I’ve been making on repeat in my own kitchen. Working on an ambulance, I need quick and healthy recipes that I can take with me on the go. I’ve been leaning heavily into my arsenal of vegan recipes, which keep for longer in my lunch box. Let me tell you, after a long morning of getting patients to the hospital, I crave these noodles for lunch! They’re also the perfect dinner to pull out of the fridge after a 14-hour day.

Are these sesame noodles vegan?

You bet! Made from 100% plant-based ingredients! The absence of dairy makes these noodles ideal for on-the-go eating. 

How To Make Sesame Noodles

This recipe couldn’t be easier, and it’s done in three parts – cooking the noodles, prepping the veg, and making the sesame sauce. The sauce is probably the best part of the recipe (IMHO). It’s made with creamy tahini, umami soy sauce, tangy lime and a hint of spicy sriracha. I would also recommend the sauce drizzled over steamed vegetables, or mixed into your favorite ramen recipe!

Are these noodles best eaten cold?

I definitely recommend eating these sesame noodles cold or at room temperature. They’re tasty when heated up, but I find the flavors shine a bit more at a lower temperature. And this recipe is also great because it tastes better the longer it sits!
