Last night I made a recipe that I found somewhere on this board and modified... it's like a spinach frittata. I made a double batch as there are 2 MFers in the house:.
2 pkg noodles.
1 10 oz. pkg frozen spinach.
1C mushrooms (or however much you need for your green).
5 oz ground turkey.
Prepare noodles, season and brown meat (then saute mushrooms in remaining juices), squeeze excess liquid from spinach. Combine all ingredients and bake @425 for 25 minutes..
The original recipe called for 1 pkg noodles, spinach and 8 oz egg substitute... it probalby has a more egg-y or quiche-like consistency that way. Since I doubled it and didn't double the egg (added meat instead) it was just like a pasta bake. I actually used a little less meat and topped it with cheese before it came out of the oven, but I don't know how the lean works out so I didn't want to write it up..
Another thing I do with the noodles is make a peanut sauce (counts as a snack). Mix 1T PB+1T hot water, add 1T rice vinegar (check the carbs) and 1 tsp soy sauce. Make sure you dry out the noodles so the sauce doesn't get watery. I just do a stirfry with chicken or shrimp... green onion and red pepper are good in it too...
Thanks so much for reminding me of the peanut sauce. My favorite...
I didn't write it down at all, I just threw something together.....
Sliced garlic (3 cloves, I guess).
Couple chicken breasts (I measured my portion after cooking - 5 oz).
Diced tomatoes (I measured about 3/4 cup serving for myself after cooking).
Ground chipotle pepper.
Shiratke noodles (measured 1 cup for myself after cooking).
1 tbspn olive oil.
Parsley to garnish.
Sautee galic in olive oil until brown, then add diced tomatoes, oregano, basil, pepper and salt. Reduce liquid a bit until it starts to thicken. Season chicken with garlic salt, pepper and chipotle pepper. Sautee in a pan sprayed with Pam until brown. Dump tomatoe sauce over chicken and allow to simmer until chicken is done..
Put the pasta in a bowl and drain the liquid out of the chicken/tomato pan right into the pasta. Toss the pasta until it's all coated nicely. Plate up 1 cup of the noodles, spoon some of the tomatoes over it, then put the chicken breast on top of the whole thing. Top with the remaining tomatoes. Sprinkle a little parsley over the whole thing and serve!.
Bear in mind that this is slightly over on veggies (1 cup noodles, 3/4 cup veggies) and it uses olive oil. But it's darn good, lemme tell ya!.
Next time, I make sure I get the recipie exactly and I'll take a pic...
OrangeBlood you rock. I love the pics. Thanks for sharing that. I had a hard time with the noodles at first but all these recipes make them delish!!!..
Funny, I was thinking I may try a frittata. Now I know where to start! And I can't wait to try orangeblood's too! The possibilities are endless with these noodles!..
Also, Women's World had a Fettucini Alfredo Recipe in it's June 20, 2006 issue.
The recipe had 88 calories a serving.
If I can find it, I'll post it.
If anyone can point me to a good internet source for shirataki noodles, I'd be really greatful!.
Take care all...
