20 Calorie Dinner – 3 Carbs, and It Doesn’t Taste Like Ass? No Way!
I had a dinner tonight that was uber healthy. It was delicious, and all three of my kids gave it a thumbs up. I'm sure you're dying to know just how healthy it was, right?
I'm gonna break it down for ya right now. These noodles have:
- 20 calories
- 3 carbs
- No cholesterol
- No sugar
And they taste goooood!! I'm not the type to like “diet” or “health” foods just for the sake of liking them. They have to taste good or I don't eat them. Guess that's why I'm still fat, eh? Ha.
So anyway, I am going to share with you a recipe that takes about 15 minutes, start to finish.
You will need:
- Shirataki noodles (I used the angel hair variety)
- stir fry veggies of your choice (I used mushrooms and broccoli)
- seasonings of your choice (I used cajun, and a little soy sauce)
Drain the shirataki noodles well. Rinse them in cold running water for at least a minute. I used two packages of shiritaki noodles for 5 of us. Heat the wok or frying pan up, and start cooking the vegetables. Add the shirataki noodles and continue cooking for 5-10 minutes or until all veggies are thoroughly cooked.
It is that simple. The noodles are already cooked, so all you have to do is cook the veggies! I actually steamed the broccoli in the microwave (took 3 minutes) and then added it to the pan with everything else.
Have you ever tried shirataki noodles? You'll find them in the produce or tofu section (usually those two sections are combined) at your local health food store. They have them at Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, etc. They have the consistency almost like ramen noodles.

This is what they look like for those that asked.
Obviously you add in the calories for the veggies, but the noodles are 20 calories and that's what makes it SO AWESOME!
