This gluten-free Saucy Thai Noodles dish tastes just like takeout Thai food. The rice noodles and fresh vegetables are coated in the most delicious sweet and spicy Thai sauce made from scratch. You can add tofu or chicken, but it is not needed. This Thai noodle recipe is super easy and speedy, making it a perfect mid-week meal.

What I love about this Thai recipe is that I get to use plenty of fresh garden vegetables, such as carrots, peppers, sugar snap peas, green onions and mushrooms making this a healthy meal. This noodle dish can be served for lunch and is hearty enough for dinner. For me, I like a small bowl as a healthy snack. This Thai noodle dish is big on flavour, you will love it!
