A super quick n' easy gluten-free and vegetarian dish... One pan, 15 minutes and dinner is served!
Easy Asian Noodles
Easy, Savory and Delicious!
This may be one of the easiest and yummiest dinners everrrr.
One pan, 15 minutes, and dinner is served.
Gluten-Free noodles, frozen edamame, shredded carrots, watercress & sesame seeds all tossed in a 3-ingredient Asian dressing… simple, cozy and delish!
And all you need is your favorite gluten-free spaghetti or noodle (we used Barilla gluten-free spaghetti. Click here to see what other pasta brands we like), frozen shelled edamame, shredded carrots, watercress, green onions, toasted sesame seeds, gluten-free tamari or soy sauce, rice wine vinegar and sesame oil.
A quick note on watercress. It is not a green I normally eat which is why I love it so much in this dish!
It has a peppery almost spicy taste to it but wilted and mixed with the asian dressing it’s a perfect pairing and unbelievably delicious!
Some of my grocery stores sell it in a bunch, others loose. If you can’t find it, feel free to substitute spinach or another green.
Back to the dish — it comes together super quickly and in one pan!
The edamame and carrots cook up with the pasta.
Then, after reserving some pasta water, everything is drained into a colander than tossed back into the cooking pot where all the other ingredients are mixed in.
When the watercress wilts, it is ready to be served!
Such an easy, crowd pleasing meal. Tastes warm or room temperature.
These Asian Noodles are a super quick,easy and delicious gluten-free dish. It requires only one pan and 15 minutes.. that's it! And it's packed with flavor.

¼ cup gluten-free, low-sodium tamari or soy sauce
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1 12 oz package gluten-free spaghetti or other noodles
1¼ cups frozen, shelled edamame
1¼ cups shredded carrots
1 small bunch watercress, coarsely chopped or approximately 3-4 cups bagged watercress (some stores sell it in bags, others loose)

Whisk together soy sauce, vinegar and sesame oil in small bowl or liquid measuring cup. Set aside.

Add edamame and carrots to boiling water, and continue cooking until noodles are tender. (If package says noodles cook in 5 minutes, add all ingredients at once.) Reserve ½ cup pasta water, then drain into a colander.
Return entire mixture to the cooking pot. Stir in watercress, green onions, sesame seeds and dressing, and stir while watercress wilts. While stirring, add reserved pasta water as needed to get desired consistency.
Add more watercress, scallions or sesame seeds as desired.
