Frequently asked questions 

What kind of noodles is best?

It depends on your preference. Any and every type of noodles work well in this recipe. Some of my favorite choices include:

  • Rice noodles 
  • Instant noodles
  • Ramen noodles
  • Udon
  • Zoodles (zucchini noodles)

Are noodles vegan?

It depends on the noodles. Rice noodles are usually vegan and gluten-free naturally, but I always check the packaging just to be safe. Egg noodles usually aren’t vegan, but again you can check the ingredients list on the packaging to make sure.

Can I eat noodles cold?

Yes. This noodle recipe can be eaten hot and cold, making it a great healthy lunch option. The artichoke hearts and sun-dried tomatoes taste amazing both hot and cold so there’s no going wrong with this easy noodle dish.

What noodles are gluten-free?

Rice noodles are usually always gluten-free, but check the ingredients list on the packaging to be sure. 

How can I add plant-based protein to a recipe?

Adding plant-based protein to this 15-minutes noodle recipe is both easy and tasty. There are so many options to add extra protein, but here’s my favorite ms:

  • Peanuts – top with peanuts for added healthy fatty acids and extra protein 
  • Cashew nuts – are one of my favorite ways to add protein to almost any dish. Cashews are high in iron and nutrients and add a healthy amount of plant-based protein as well as a deliciously crunchy texture.
  • Roasted chickpeas – chickpeas are a delicious way to up the protein in any recipe 
  • Tofu – tofu adds a tender texture and lots of plant-based protein 
  • Tempeh – another great option to add protein to any dish
  • Beans – black beans especially. All beans will add extra protein, but black beans take the top spot
