These nooooooods. You guys. I can barely keep it in my pants right now.

Forever swooning over any bowl of cozy noodles with a creamy sauce of sorts but this one has won me over.

Allow me to introduce the easiest Sesame Peanut Tahini Noodles with grilled halloumi on top. I am looking for anything and everything simple and easy these days that also makes some leftovers to last us for a few days. These noodles do just that.

Better than takeout kind of peanut noodles…

This recipe is made with all gluten-free ingredients and the creamy sauce? YUP, it has both tahini and peanut butter in it. I combine creamy tahini, peanut butter, coconut aminos (instead of soy sauce), hot sauce, Bonafide Provisions Organic Bone Broth and a couple other gems to make the most flavorful sauce to pour on top of the gluten-free rice noodles.

Cooking with bone broth is truly a staple over here. Our fridge and freezer is always stocked with some broth for sipping and cooking. It adds so much flavorful to the recipe and some extra collagen and protein to it. Bonafide is my personal fave after trying many of the bone broths on the market (more on bone broth here). You can find it in most national retailers in the freezer section.

I also love making 10-minute Bone Broth Cauliflower Fried RiceHomemade Bone Broth Ramen Bowls and Skillet Turkey Burgers with their broth too. The possibilities are endless.

But for now, enjoy these Sesame Peanut Tahini Noodles and the flavor bomb. Especially when you add that grilled halloumi on top. Or feel free to add any other toppings you wish. I added slice chicken a couple weeks ago too and it was delicious!

What ingredients are in this sesame peanut tahini noodles:

  • Gluten-free noodles of choice – I used brown rice noodles noodles but you can use any noodles you want. Soba noodles would be great too.
  • Scallions – these add a ton of flavor. I love using just the green part but feel free to use as much as you want.
  • Roasted or unsalted peanuts – I mean…these are a must for crunch and flavor. If you want to use another nut, cashews or almonds could work too.
  • Halloumi – I found in the cheese section at grocery store! I love love love this in salads too. It’s a crispy salty cheese – what could be better?
  • White sesame seeds – for pretty garnish and compliments the tahini flavor
  • Creamy peanut butter – bet you didn’t know I used peanut butter for something besides desserts and spooning huh?! If you can’t do peanuts or want to switch things up – get almond butter too or just use more tahini.
  • Creamy tahini – I usually use the organic one from Trader Joe’s
  • Chicken Bone Broth –  oh heck yes. And if you want to keep things vegetarian just use a vegetable broth. Use code RACHL for 15% off of my favorite one.
  • Water – simple enough here guys.
  • Coconut aminos – I use this all the time as a healthier alternative to a soy sauce.
  • Hot sauce – you can also omit this if you want no spice.
  • Lime juice – we used fresh lime here.
  • Sesame oil – oh my gosh what a game changer in this dish!! Adds so much flavor.

How to cook these noodles in just 20 minutes with grilled halloumi:

  1. Cook noodles per instructions on package
  2. As noodles cook, combine the sauce ingredients in a small sauce pan and warm over medium-low heat (don’t do high heat or it’ll burn!)
  3. Continue to stir the sauce until ingredients are well combined and melted together
  4. Let the sauce continue to warm over low heat as you begin making the halloumi
  5. Slice halloumi into small squares and crisp over a skillet in a little avocado oil on each side for 3 minutes
  6. Remove from heat and set aside
  7. Once the noodles are cooked, strain and rinse with cold water then add back to the pot you cooked them in and toss with the sauce, mix in halloumi, peanuts scallions and sesame seeds
  8. Add noodles to bowl of choice and enjoy!

  1. These noodles were awesome and seriously quick to make. I love how much protein is in this recipe! I added an extra dash of water to thin out the sauce a bit and some minced garlic that I had on hand for extra flavor. Yum!!!!
