After the cucumber noodle failure, I was feeling dismal about the possibility of ever finding a low calorie substitute until I stumbled upon TOFU SHIRATAKI.
The entire bag is 40 calories, 0 grams of fat and vegan! There is angel hair, spaghetti and fettuccine. Each bag costs about $2.50 at Whole Foods. It takes 2 minutes to prepare – simply drop the noodles into boiling water for a few minutes, lightly pull apart, strain and serve. A good homemade sauce completes the meal. Farewell, Kroger brand pasta…
1. Strain well or your bowl of pasta will be too watery.
2. The noodles have a strange smell when they first come out of the bag, but boiling for a few minutes eliminates this!
3. Eat with a hearty sauce. Remember, the whole bag is only 40 calories!
4. Eat often.
