Chickpea noodles with low-carb, gluten-free sesame dressing

Another variation of Japanese cold noodle Hiyashi Chuka (cold sesame noodle), this recipe uses chickpea noodles and low-carb, gluten-free, and freshly-made sesame dressing to create a simple, nutritious, and delicious dish.

Why Chickpea Noodles

Instead of traditional wheat based noodles, chickpea noodles are gluten-free and provide higher amounts of protein, fiber, iron, and potassium than traditional wheat noodles. Chickpea is also a rich source of phytoestrogens, which help balance hormones and protect our bones and heart. Pair up with a low-carb, gluten-free dressing made of freshly toasted and ground sesame seeds to increase nutritional density.
