Calorie-Free Noodles with Thai Sauce

When a friend told me about calorie-free noodles, I couldn’t wait to try them.  I’d had similar low-calorie varieties in the past, but this new version, AKA the “miracle noodle”  was completely calorie-free, and soy-free.  After trying them with tomato sauce, I quickly discovered that these noodles should really be eaten Asian style.  They are most similar to rice noodles and have a slightly rubbery texture that lends itself to Thai and Asian cuisine.  Any sort of sesame/soy sauce or low-fat peanut sauce works well with Shirataki noodles. I decided to add broccoli, cabbage and bell peppers to mine and used a store bought low-fat peanut dressing along with my good old PB2, reconstituted with rice wine vinegar, to add more pea-nutty flavor without extra fat or calories.  The result was a filling meal, bursting with flavor and vitamins from all the veggies.  Add 3-4 ounces of grilled chicken for a complete meal.  Some benefits to these noodles include:  naturally water soluble fiber with no fat, sugar, or starch; contain zero net carbohydrates and zero calories, no gluten -made of a healthy natural fiber called Glucomannan; easily absorbs the flavors of any soup, dish, or sauce; are instant and come in a variety of styles;  have shown beneficial effects backed by medical studies for Type II Diabetes, Constipation, Obesity, and Cholesterol!


  • Cooking Spray
  • 1 package Shirataki Noodles
  • 2 tablespoons Low-fat Thai Peanut Salad dressing (I used Lite House) or marinade
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup shredded cabbage
  • small handful of broccoli
  • 6 slices yellow or red bell pepper
  • 4 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons PB2 (or 2 tsp. regular PB)
  • 1 tsp. agave
  • sprinkle of crushed red pepper
Rinse the noodles following package directions and drop in boiling water 1 minute.  Remove and pour into a colander.  Reconstitute the PB2 in rice wine vinegar and set aside.  Heat a large saucepan over medium heat with cooking spray.  Add garlic, followed by the veggies.  Stir fry for 2 minutes and then add in your dressing, PB2, agave and pepper.  Stir for another minute then add noodles to the pan to coat.  If you like more sauce, simply add a little peanut butter and rice vinegar, or coconut milk to the pan.  Serves 1.
This is a flavorful dressing or marinade that doesn’t break the calorie-bank.
