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)
- 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)
- 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.
