Low Carb Cold Spicy Peanut Shirataki Noodles

14 ratings

This is a favorite meal in my house! The dressing is so addictive and the shirataki noodles taste exactly like wheat noodles! The herbs on top of the bowls makes everything so fresh and the bean sprouts give everything crunch. Be sure to grab a variety of bell peppers if you want lots of colors! Place noodles in the fridge before you are ready to serve so they are chilled. I love this dish because it can be prepped ahead of time! I also used Thai basil for this which has a more authentic taste for this dish than Italian basil. For the soy sauce use tamari if wheat is an issue.

    Maybe I didn't understand how to eat this, but did not like it cold. Used my second serving for a lunch and heated the noodles and added the chicken & noodles. Was okay, better than cold.

          The ingredients for the noodles say potato starch and chicken peas which is not good on a keto diet

                        By subbing MaraNatha SF Almond Butter for the PB and Tamari for the soy sauce, you can eliminate 2g carbs per serving.

                          This recipe came up as vegan friendly. It has chicken in it.

                            IKR, I'm just going to substitute some vegan protein and adjust accordingly.

                          I am new to this app. I made this last night for my lunch's this week. Since this said 4 servings, I divided it into 4 containers. Now when I enter this into my log, it says 3/4 servings. What am i doing wrong? Am I just supposed to adjust this to say 1 serving? Was I only supposed to have 3/4 servings of my plate? Am I thinking too hard about this? Thank you in advance.

                            I think your problem lies in your CM setting. When you choose a meal plan there is an option to allow CM to adjust your servings to fit your macros.

                          This says that it has 4.7 grams of sugar! How can you stay in keto with that many grams of sugar and where do they come from?

                            I suspect the sugar comes from the peanut butter. If you use almond butter and adjust the recipe accordingly, it should lower the sugar.

                          Where does the sesame oil come into the recipe? Use it on the noodles or add it to the peanut sauce???

                            Add it to the sauce! I apologize that wasn't clear.

                            I personally use Smuckers Natural in creamy, especially for this recipe. The macro counts were similar to the ones in the recipe.
