Shiritaki Noodle Stir Fry


YUM!! I just finished this huge bowl of noodles and veggies and let me tell you, it was amazing. The perfect amount of spice and flavor.


If you have not heard of shiritaki noodles before, you have been missing out! They are great if you know how to prepare them correctly. You get to eat a whole bag (8 oz) for only 40 calories compared to around 400 calories in 8 oz of regular stir fry noodles. They have a weird smell when you first open them, so make sure you give them a good rinse before you cook them up. Other than that, enjoy!

Shiritaki Noodle Stir Fry

(1 huge serving)

Ingredients:
  • 1 8oz bag shiritaki noodles (I used Japanese House Foods brand)
  • 1.5 cups frozen stir fry veggies (with broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts, etc.)
  • 1/2 cup baby corn
  • 2 oz boneless, skinless, chicken breast, cut into small strips
  • Black Bean Sauce (I used Kikkoman brand for 10 calories/tbs)
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • around 1/4 cup water 
  • Sriracha to taste (or other hot sauce of choice)
Method:
  • Rinse shiritaki noodles thoroughly and place into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave 2 minutes. Drain any excess liquid, then use paper towel to dry them even more. Set aside
  • Heat a medium frying pan over medium-high and coat lightly with non-stick spray
  • Add chicken and cook until almost no pink remains. Add in ginger, garlic, and water. Cook until no pink remains
  • Add in frozen veggies and baby corn. Stir fry until cooked to desired tenderness (adding more water if necessary) and all water has evaporated.
  • Add in noodles, soy sauce, black bean sauce, and sriracha. Cook until heated.
