Shirataki Noodles with Brocoli, Oil and Garlic Chips

 Get your Monday off to a great start with my favorite healthy go to meal- Shiratki Noodles with Brocoli, Olive oil and Garlic Chips. I first heard about the 20 calorie tofu noodles on The Dr.Oz Show. At 20 calories per serving and zero carbs I had to give the noodles a try. Don't think these noodles taste like pasta, although folks claim they're a great substitute. There's nothing like a big dish of pasta and these noodles don't come close. But.... They are a terrific alternative and easy way to incorporate healthy menu options into your lifestyle. I purchased mine on Amazon, for just $15.49 for a pack of 6.

Beware, it's been claimed these noodles smell like bad fish when you open them and the claim is true. Just rinse the noodles in cold water for 3minutes to wash away the odor then toss into boiling salted water for 2 minutes, toss with your favorite sauce or veggies and a healthy meal is done in under ten minutes. I love tossing the noodles with crispy garlic chips and nothing more than some extra virgin olive oil and fresh handful of parmigiano reggiano. This is recipe is vegan too, just omit the parmigiano! Want the recipe, email me a tcouturechefs@yahoo.com
