Using your noodle(s)Posted: October 13, 2011
I made a great discovery last week, thanks to my friend Brie.
When we had that super delicious dinner at Great Sage last week, our seaweed salad also had kelp noodles in it. They have a really great texture and crunch. The noodles don’t have much flavor on their own, but they are a great addition to any type of salad, and can also be substituted for many different dishes that would have a different type of noodle.
I threw some in my kale salad (sans carrots + tomato) that I had with lunch today.
I haven’t experimented with them much, but there were some recipes on the back of the bag that I purchased that sounded awesome (like stir fry, pad thai, etc.).
The best part? Each serving has 6 calories. And you can eat the entire bag for 18 calories. I can’t imagine how many strands of pasta I could get for 18 calories… maybe 5? It’s all about volume, people!
I was thinking at first that it might be similar to Tofu shirataki noodles that were all the rage a few years ago (I personally DO NOT care for the texture of them)- but these are way better, in my onion.
I’m not endorsed by Sea Tangle products in any way- but GO BUY THESE! (I’ve just gotta share a good product when I find one!)
