Spicy Mango Sesame Noodles
If you’re like me, your favorite part of getting Chinese food is the Sesame noodles. Cold or hot, there is just something so appealing about a giant bowl of carbs slathered in a crunchy peanut sauce. Unfortunately, those aren’t good for you. Fortunately, I’ve come up with what I think is a pretty darn good replacement!
If you’ve never tried Shirataki noodles, they’re AMAZING! They range from 0-30 calories per bag, and they fill you up! If your grocery store carries them, you can find them in the tofu section, but the ones I used for this recipe are the regular Shirataki noodles which are made from yam flour. The noodles come in a variety of shapes (even macaroni), and while I won’t lie to you and tell you that it’s the same texture as regular pasta, I’m also serious that this is the best pasta replacement ever.
Spicy Mango Sesame Noodles (Generously serves 1 – Double or triple recipe to use as a side dish):
- 1 bag 0-calorie shirataki noodles
- 1/4 mango, sliced into thin strips
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 1 tbs. crunchy peanut butter (I used Earth Balance coconut peanut butter)
- 1 tsp The Heat is On peanut butter by Peanut Butter and Co. (or sriracha to taste)
- 1 tbs. Bragg’s liquid aminos or soy sauce
- Sesame seeds (you can choose to toast them if you wish)
Rinse, drain, and dry noodles according to package. Place noodles in a nonstick pan with garlic. Add remaining ingredients once pan is heated and stir in pan until combined. Garnish with sesame seeds.
