FroGro Finds: Veggie Noodle Stir Fry That Will Blow Your Mind (But Not Your Diet)
If you haven’t heard of the new trend of “miracle noodles,” you’re missing out. This keto, gluten-free, and grain-free pasta alternative is almost completely calorie– and carb-free, consisting solely of water and glucomannan fiber.
Admittedly, if eaten alone, they taste how you would expect them to – like water and glucomannan fiber (in other words, like nothing). But when you add the right ingredients, you may begin to understand why they’ve earned the title “miracle” noodles. Although they’re exploding in the health food scene, you don’t need to go to a fancy store to buy them – look no further than your beloved Fresh Grocer, which stocks Shirataki Tofu Noodles in the produce section. In fact, all of the ingredients used in this recipe can be found at Fresh Grocer, so there’s no excuse to not take 10 minutes to prepare this low-calorie, high-delight meal.
Put vegetables in the microwave for 5 minutes. (The bag is microwaveable, so you can keep it in the bag for the full portion.
Squeeze out the water from the noodles and put them in the microwave for 1.5 minutes.
While the vegetables and noodles are warming up, put the stove on medium heat. Spray a pan with Pam and add liquid egg whites.
Scramble the egg whites around and then add in the vegetables and noodles.
Add soy sauce to the pan and mix all ingredients together into a stir fry.
Heat up 1 tbsp of water (either in a kettle or for around 1.5 minutes in the microwave). Add the hot water to the PB2. (In my opinion, PB2 tastes best when warm, and it has a better consistency when hot water is added than when heated up in the microwave.)
Put the stir fry in a bowl and add the PB2 and sesame seeds on top. You can add chicken for more protein or remove the egg whites to make the recipe vegan. You can also substitute soy sauce for teriyaki sauce for more flavor. Enjoy!
