Have you tried Shirataki noodles before?
They’re often called “Miracle” noodles or “Zero” noodles because of the fact they contain no calories, fat or carbs! Sounds too good to be true, right?
They’re naturally gluten-free and grain-free, meaning they are also suitable for Paleo diets too.
Suffice to say, they’re often used by people trying to lose weight and make an excellent alternative to wheat or rice-based noodles.
So how does it taste? I had heard mixed reviews about the shirataki noodles and their texture but I found them surprisingly good!
They are definitely more chewy but it’s not at all unpleasant, in fact I enjoyed it.
Coconut aminos do an amazing job at creating a soy sauce flavour without containing any soy and the almond butter could almost be mistaken for peanut butter in this dish, especially when mixed with the rest of the ingredients.
You could also use cashew butter or tahini.
So all in all, you’ve got a healthy, vegan & paleo-friendly (minus the mange tout) dish that is easy to make low carb and keto friendly (by using low carb vegetables) and tastes just like a classic peanut noodle stir fry. Delicious!
Not only is this dish so healthy but it’s SO easy too and can be ready in under 10 minutes! That’s always a good thing.
You simply need to stir fry the veg, add the noodles and the rest of the ingredients to make a sauce.
One pan, minimal washing up, ready in a flash and all for under 200 calories. It’s a dream come true…
