Best gluten free noodles for stir-fry

There are a few factors to consider when choosing the best gluten free noodles for stir-fry. 

Rice noodles are the most popular and widely available, but they can be tricky to cook with. Rice noodles tend to stick together, and if you’re not careful, they can turn into a mushy mess.

If you want something more robust, glass or cellophane noodles are another excellent option. They’re made from rice flour and tapioca starch, so they’re quite strong and won’t break apart easily. They have a slightly different texture than rice noodles, but they’ll still hold up well in a stir-fry.

In this 15 Minute Gluten Free Schezwan Noodles dish, we found that gluten free ramen noodles work the best. There are various gluten free ramen noodles available. Here are 3 of our favorites;
