Have you tried shiritaki noodles? If you love noodles but don’t love all the calories, you’ve GOT to check them out.
I was contacted by Nasoya to try out their product Nasoya Pasta Zero Shiritaki Noodles and got straight to work coming up with a delicious recipe.
First things first, if you’re not familiar with shiritaki noodles, they are a traditional low carb Japanese noodle that are 20 calories per serving. Total calorie bargain – you save about 200 calories over regular pasta. Plus, they are all natural, vegan, fat free and gluten free.
Shiritaki noodles alone have no taste, but when you add them to your favorite dish, they absorb the flavor. They have a great texture and completely take care of any pasta craving! I’ve seen these noodles used in traditional pasta dishes, like spaghetti and fettucini alfredo, but I wanted to try them in dish with Asian flair.
This noodle bowl is pretty amazing if I do say so myself. All the flavors come together brilliantly – spicy, sweet, salty – and the noodles and vegetables add enough bulk to the dish that you feel satisfied – for less than 300 calories!
One word of warning…shiritaki noodles have a very distinct odor. You must rinse them. Once rinsed and added to your dish, the odor completely disappears. All you are left with is a guilt free noodle-fest.
