Recipe: Noodle yums (gluten-free, dairy-free)

I’m sure this recipe has an official name, but we simply call it noodle yums. The original recipe comes from my brother in law, Ted, who is a really good cook – I love it when he’s in the kitchen!

You can use either fresh rice noodles from Asian supermarkets or any other gluten-free grain or pasta in this recipe.

Also in this recipe you’ll see the use of tamari. Tamari is usually gluten-free (be sure to check the label) and is a good alternative to soy sauce which has a similar taste but usually contains wheat.


Approx 1 Kg of beef

Green vegetables for stir-frying e.g. bok choi, pak choi

Rice/fresh rice noodles/gluten-free pasta

4 Tablespoons Tamari (gluten-free)

3 Tablespoons of Sesame Oil

Approx 1 Tablespoon arrowroot or cornflour

Quarter cup water

Chop up approx beef into bite sized pieces. In a bowl mix tamari and sesame oil. Add beef to bowl and allow to soak for an hour.

Chop up greens e.g. pak choi, bok choi and place to the side.

Cook rice noodles/pasta/rice, drain and set aside.

In a separate bowl mix three eggs, a pinch of salt and pepper to taste. Pan fry egg mixture (you’re making an omelette here). Once ready, cut omelette into bite sized pieces and remove from pan.

Pan fry beef with tamari/sesame oil mix and water. In a small cup, mix arrowroot or other thickener (eg. cornflour) with a small amount of water. Slowly add the mix to the pan until thickened to the desired consistency. If the mix gets too thick, just add a bit of water.

Once meat is browned, add greens, egg mixture and rice noodles and mix.

Add salt, pepper and more tamari to taste. Voila!
