What Are Shirataki Noodles?
If you’ve never heard of shirataki noodles, they are noodles made from the konjac plant. They are composed of water and glucomannan starch.
They have anywhere from zero calories to very little calories, depending on which kind you get. They are low in carbs and rich in fiber.
The texture of this low carb pasta is similar to regular pasta. It comes in a few different noodle types, including spaghetti, fettuccine, macaroni, capellini, ziti, and angel hair. There’s even shirataki rice.
I used the spaghetti noodles for this recipe because I think the texture is closer to regular pasta than the thicker shirataki noodles.
There’s also tofu shirataki noodles, and shirataki noodles with spinach or herbs mixed in. There’s even ready to eat meals. Talk about convenient!
It’s All About The Sauce
When you add a flavorful sauce to shirataki noodles, they take on those flavors, and you don’t even notice you aren’t eating traditional pasta.
Besides these Vegan Pesto Shirataki Noodles, this low carb pasta tastes great with the Walnut Sauce that I used in my Vegan Zucchini Lasagna with Tofu Ricotta and Walnut Sauce. Both are a perfect addition to a vegan keto diet.
