Spicy Asian Noodle Soup

I’m fortunate to have a partner who not only enjoys cooking, but is also on board with this Keto diet. Brittani has compiled some amazing recipes that have me questioning if we’re even on a diet at all. We’ve had things like Chicken Enchilada Casserole, Asian Beef Salad, Delicious pork chop meals, and many, many more things that I hope to talk about over the coming weeks. The recipe I’m going to talk about today is called Spicy Asian Noodle Soup.

The secret to being able to eat noodles on a no-carb / low-carb diet is by not using noodles at all. Brittani has a gluten allergy, so many of the different pastas available on the market are out of the question from the get-go. In fact, she sacrifices her own comfort at times to make pasta meals that she knows I enjoy. However, once she discovered Shirataki noodles, everything changed.

Shirataki noodles are thin, white Japanese noodles that come from the root of the konjac plant. They are tasteless on their own, and are low in calories and more importantly are extremely low in carbs. These noodles are helpful in giving you the texture and appearance of conventional pasta noodles, without the high number of carbs and calories, and without the gluten which causes digestive issues for some. We were able to find them at our local health and organic food store, in the refrigerated section. They come packaged in water, and should be drained before use.

Brittani has these notes to add to this recipe:

Ramen was one of my favorite meals before Keto, so I was so excited when I found this recipe. Here are a couple things I changed to make it a little more my style. I like to use three cups of water and three beef bouillon cubes instead of two because I like more broth. Sometimes I make it with or without meat. I also like to chop up a half of stock of celery to add a little crunch to it. If you are using Shirataki noodles makes sure to rinse very well before using. This recipe takes about 20 minutes without meat.
