Are Instant Pot Thai Peanut Noodles Gluten Free?
The recipe as written is not gluten free, but with a few simple substitutions you can make this dish gluten free. The spaghetti noodles and soy sauce are the two ingredients that contain gluten. The spaghetti noodles can be swapped for rice noodles (or any other gluten-free pasta), and you can replace traditional soy sauce with Tamari which is a wheat-free soy sauce. Tamari has a darker color and richer flavor than the common soy sauce you may be more familiar with. It also tastes more balanced and less salty, so it may be a desirable substitution for those who are not sensitive to gluten.
