Skinny Shirataki Noodles is an awesome pasta substitute because they are gluten free, soy free, vegan, low carb and contain zero to low calories. These noodles can easily be substituted for spaghetti type pastas in your favorite recipes. You can eat them with tomato sauce, with stir fry vegetables or in chicken noodle soup.
The best part of this brand of shirataki noodles is that they are made in the USA and is one of the only brands that doesn't use soy in their products. They are made from a root vegetable that was discovered in Asia.
I love substituting avocado for fats in my recipes like in salad dressings, so when I discovered the 15 Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta from Oh She Glows I had to try it with the Skinny Noodle Spaghetti to make it lower in calories. The creamy sauce was delicious and the Skinny Noodle Spaghetti just soaked in all of the yummy flavor. I felt like I was eating a big bowl of naughty fatty pasta! The Skinny Noodles Spaghetti that I used for this recipe has 0 calories, 0 net carbs, and 3 grams of fiber per serving (1/2 package).
The sauce is so easy to do that all you have to do is take all of the ingredients below and process them in a food processor (Makes 3 servings):
- 1 medium ripe and pitted avocado
- 1/2 lemon juiced and zest for garnish
- 1-3 garlic cloves
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt, or to taste
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
- 2 tblsp extra virgin olive oil
Mix the spaghetti with 1/3 of the sauce until the spaghetti is evenly coated. Put it in a pretty plate to enjoy.
