11 Jun

I mentioned in an earlier post that I went to the Asian supermarket and got myself some Shirataki noodles. Well, I’ve finally found the time to try them out. These are pretty good! Here is what I had yesterday.

Fried Shirataki Noodles with Tofu and Vegetables

(makes 4 servings)

2 X 200gr packets shirataki noodles

2 cloves garlic, minced

150 gr chinese cabbage, chopped

1 carrot, grated

200 gr tofu, cubed

150 gr bean sprouts

1 small onion, sliced

1-2 stalks green onions, cut into 5cm/2 in lengths

1 egg, beaten

Drain the shirataki noodles, put into a bowl and sprinkle with about 1 tsp soy sauce and 1/2 tsp sesame oil.

Make a thin omelette from the egg and julienne it.

Fry the tofu till nicely browned and drain on a paper towel.

Heat some oil in a wok. Add onions and stir fry till translucent. Then add the garlic and cook for a short while. Next comes the chinese cabbage. Stir fry till half done, then add the grated carrots and bean sprouts. Cook for about 2 min. Then add the tofu, shirataki noodles and green onions. Season the whole dish with soy sauce and sesame oil to taste. Stir in half the julienned egg and use the rest to garnish the dish upon serving.

Of course you can vary the vegetables and instead of tofu, you could use sliced beef, chicken, pork or seafood.
