Recommended Ingredients

I recommend the following veggies for this recipe:

  • broccoli or baby broccoli florets
  • bell peppers (various colors, chopped, and seeds removed)
  • 14 oz shirataki noodles rinsed in cold water and drained in a coriander
  • shallots
  • mushrooms
  • carrot
  • red onion

If you’re on a low carb diet, all of these veggies are perfectly fine. However, some strict keto dieters will restrict their intake of onion and carrot.

Shirataki noodles: how to make them taste great

You’re either going to love shirataki, or hate them. At first, I was not a fan, but then I learned how to make them properly. Use these tips for the best shirataki noodles in any dish:

  • remove and drain
  • rinse with cold water
  • then, rinse again
  • do not pre-cook (they are already soft and do not need to be boiled)

I always add shirataki noodles toward the end of my cooking, then add sauces for the noodles to absorb. As always, if you do not like them, or haven’t tried them before, do a little test-run first.

  • tofu
  • chicken, steak, or pork

FAQ
