This gluten free pasta ramen noodles is low in carbs and packed with flavour.
Ramen noodles have become super trendy in the past few years, and coincidentally so has going gluten free. Gluten free pasta is now pretty easy to find, but low carb gluten free pasta? WHAT?
Gluten Free Pasta That’s Also Low Carbs?
It’s true. While most gluten free pasta products out there are actually higher in calories, I found a solution that will make everyone excited to slurp up a big bowl of noodles.
Thank you Tofu Shirataki noodles. Seriously guys, this is THE OFFICIAL Low Carb Gluten Free Pasta.
A half cup (half the bag) is just 15 calories, 0.5 grams of fat, and only 3 grams of carbs. The result is a bowl of comforting noodle soup without the calorie bomb bloat. I also added in some easy baked chicken breast and a soft boiled egg for extra protein and flavour.
Remember when ramen restaurants completely took over your city as the hottest thing since sliced bread? Remember having to line up for like 45 minutes just to get a seat and a bowl of hot steaming carb-loaded noodles? Forget about it. This recipe delivers all the flavour and comfort of those restaurant ramen noodles but without the heavy hit of calories or the queue in the cold. Yep, and lots of gluten free pasta goodness.You’re welcome.
