April 16, 2018

Hey guys! As promised, here’s another recipe on the blog which I’m sure you will find so easy to do! It’s the QUICK AND HEALTHY ASIAN STIR-FRIED NOODLES!

Here are the ingredients :

  • 8 oz packet 7 Grains Pantry Skinny Carbs Shirataki Noodles
  • 4 oz chicken thigh, cut into strips
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 1/4 cup carrots, cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup green bell pepper, cut into strips
  • 1/4 cup onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tbsp spring onions, sliced
  • 4 tbsp peanuts (optional)
For the sauce :
  • 1 tbsp 7 Grains Pantry Skinny Seasoning 
  • 1 tbsp rice wine vinegar 
  • 1/2 tbsp chili garlic sauce (optional)

Now you may have noticed that I named this recipe as “Healthy” — because it is really very HEALTHY!

Why, because of two important ingredients that I used here :

1) SKINNY CARBS SHIRATAKI NOODLES and 2) SKINNY SEASONING

Let me tell you a little bit more about these amazing ingredients (which I get from 7 Grains Pantry — click their website here.)

Shirataki noodles are low calorie, low carbohydrate Japanese noodles made from the Konjac plant. It is made largely of water and a highly soluble dietary fiber known as glucomannan. It is virtually taste-free and will absorb the flavor from soups and sauces. It  aids in weight loss, controls blood sugar and lowers cholesterol.

It is a vegan product that is also gluten, wheat and soy-free! And recently, these noodles have been dubbed as the “holy grail” of dieting in European and US whole food stores. They are also included in the top health foods in Japan and are slowly getting recognition as a superfood because of its nutritional benefits.

I say, this is our best alternative to our favorite but high carbohydrate, high calorie, gluten rich pastas and Asian noodles!

The Skinny Seasoning meanwhile is an all purpose seasoning that is a good, natural and healthy alternative to sodium-rich soy sauce and other liquid seasoning! It is made from USDA selected soybeans that are naturally fermented to give you a distinct “umami” flavor that is both full bodied and healthy. You can drizzle it on your meats and vegetables or add it to sauces, dressings, rice and soups.

This seasoning has no added coloring, preservatives, or artificial flavoring. It is low calorie with 1.6 calories per serving  — as opposed to reduced sodium soy sauce, which has 15-25 calories. It does not use any table salt or sodium, and no alcohol as well. Health benefits wise, it contains 16 amino acids, 10 times more antioxidants than red wine and oligosaccharides which support the growth of “friendly” bacteria in our digestive system.

Now that we know this recipe is not just quick but healthy too, let me share with you now how to cook it!

Let’s watch the video :

 

Instructions : 

1. Cook the Shirataki noodles in boiling water for about 2 minutes, drain and pat dry. Set aside.
