Have you heard of konjac noodles? Over the past year they have become quite popular as a low carb, gluten-free and paleo/keto friendly pasta option.
These noodles are also high in fiber but what I love the most about them is that you don't have to cook them! Typically all you have to do is rinse them and then add them to your dish and let heat for about 2 minutes.
Now you can impress your family or friends by whipping up quick dishes like my Quick Thai Noodle Bowl!
Serves 1 (sauce makes a bit extra)
1 package of NuPasta or konjac noodle brand of your choice
1 cup of cooked shrimp
1 cup spiralized carrots or shredded is just fine
1 tbsp of green onion, diced
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp avocado oil
1 tsp red pepper chili flakes
1 tbsp almond butter
1 tbsp of sesame oil
1 tbsp of water if needed
1. Add the avocado oil to a frying pan with garlic powder, green onion and carrots. Cook until the carrots start to soften
2. In the meantime combine almond butter, chili flakes and sesame oil. If you need the sauce to be thinner you can slowly add some water or more oil. This amount of sauce will serve 1-2 people
3. Once the carrots begin to soften, mix in konjac noodles and cooked shrimp. Let heat for a couple minutes.
4. Remove from heat and drizzle with almond sauce
