I need to flavor noodles w/out using dairy or gluten

My son has celiac and can't have gluten (wheat, oats, barley, rye) or dairy foods. His foods get a little bland and boring. What can I use besides spaghetti sauce to flavor his noodles?

I make a lot of sauces with ground cashews. Nutritional yeast has a cheesy flavor with out dairy. What about beans? Chickpeas, black beans, etc? Here's a blog that might be interesting: Gluten Free Goddess

Salsa works nicely in noodles. There is a whole range of asian noodle dishes. Sesame noodles comes to mind.

Good call. I love those Szechuan noodles. Hot and spicy with ground pork and peas in a brown gravy.

I think OP's son is a little boy... spicy foods might not be his forte just yet...

How about adding some chicken bouillon to the cooking water? That would add lots of flavor to plain noodles. I know my grands all love plain noodles...

I go long with ChefJune - using any kind of stock for cooking the noodles will add lots of flavour.

Peanut sauce

Do you give him rice and potatoes, too? Potato salad (mayo-based, or vinegar-based, if he'll eat it), all kinds of gravies, mild curries. Does he like hot foods? Some children do Might be a good time to introduce them to him slowly.

There are a lot of blogs that specialize in gluten-free recipes. Karina's mentioned above is a very good one. Here are some more:
