Our pick of gluten-free noodles below can work in pasta dishes, too, because we know it can be challenging to find gluten-free pasta that is tasty and not mushy.

Unfortunately, regular egg noodles are not gluten-free as they are made with flour. However, don’t be too disappointed because we have five more amazing gluten-free noodle options below! Keep reading to find out.
Top 5 Gluten-Free Noodles
1. Rice Noodles
Yes, most rice noodles are gluten-free because they contain rice flour and water, although as always, please check the ingredients, just in case.
You will find it in most supermarkets as they are traditional in Asian recipes.
They are best cooked in boiling water and then into ice-cold water as otherwise there is a tendancy to overcook them and they lose their structure.
2. Soba Noodles
Warning! Please always check the packaging of soba noodles as some brands may use a combination of wheat and buckwheat flour.
The word soba is Japanese for buckwheat. Despite the name, these are actually gluten-free. Soba noodles are thin like spaghetti, they are used in hot and cold dishes in Japan and have a nutty, earthy flavour. They are full of protein and fibre
3. Shirataki Noodles
Shirataki noodles are made from konjac starch, a Japanese root vegetable. They are again full of fibre which will help keep you full for longer. They are known for being low in calories, so bare in mind to top your noodles with healthy fats, veggies and proteins to get nutrients in.
They have little to no taste but mix with sauces and other ingredients, and it’s sure to be super delicious.
Price: £13 (pack of 6)
4. Kelp Noodles
Korean noodles made from kelp are specifically low in carbs and calories. They are also gluten and fat-free.
Similarly to Shirataki noodles, they don’t have much taste, and they are clear and crunchy.
Kelp noodles are ready to eat and great in salads, or you can use these in vegetable spring rolls, soups or stir-frys. Whatever you fancy because they are super versatile.
You can find kelp noodles on Amazon or Asian supermarkets.

Brown rice noodles are versatile, nutritious, and delicious. They are easy to cook and add a nice natural oriental flavour to any dish. Stir fry them with vegetables and your favourite sauce for a quick and easy dinner.
