Konjac Noodles with Peanut Butter Asian Sauce

Posted by Lasto Foods on

Have you heard of Konjac Noodles? Konjac is an asian root composed of 97% water and 3% of glucomannan fiber. Why do we love them? They are very filling and low on calories. No fat, no carbs, no protein, just fiber!  What we like to do is mix them up with whole wheat grain noodles. I swear you can barely taste the difference.

8 oz whole wheat noodles 

7 oz konjac noodles 

4 carrots, julienned

5 red bell peppers, juliened

5 celery sticks, sliced

1 onion, sliced

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 cup cilantro

salt and pepper

1 tbsp butter or ghee 

1 tbsp sesame seed (optional for garnish)

2 tbsp sesame seeds (optional for garnish)

For the sauce:

1 cup peanut butter

1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce or tamari

2 Tbsp Sriracha

2 Tbsp Nutritional yeast

 

Cook the pasta for about 7-8 minutes until al dente. Cook all the vegetables in a wok or big pan with a little butter until they are cooked but slightly crunchy. Add the cooked pasta and konjac noodles. Add the sauce and stir. Top with cilantro, drizzle a little bit of sesame oil and sprinkle some sesame seeds

For the sauce: blend everything together or mix with a whisk.

Enjoy! 

 

With love,
