The Dago's Dilemma

You love pasta, but you hate love handles -- this is the Dago's Dilemma. Pasta packs on the pounds, and even the whole wheat varieties are surprisingly high in carbs & calories. Shirataki noodles, however, are only 40 calories per pack with no carbs, no cholesterol, no sugar, and no guilt. See? It says it right there on the package.


Shirataki noodles are made from tofu, and have a slightly chewy texture.  Their taste is neutral and goes well with most sauces and preparations, but my favorite way to prepare this Japanese treat is a riff on cold noodles w/ peanut sauce.


Cold Sesame Noodles w/ Peanut Sauce
2 pkgs Shirataki noodles
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1 TBS soy sauce
1 TBS rice vinegar
1 TBS sesame oil
1 tsp sriracha hot sauce
1/2 shredded carrot
1/2 cup bean sprouts
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1 tsp sesame seeds

  1. drain and rinse Shirataki noodles thoroughly! the liquid they are packaged in smells a bit off-putting, but has no implication on the flavor. 
  2. cook in salted boiling water for 4 minutes.  drain, toss w/ a drizzle of canola oil and allow to cool.
  3. combine the peanut butter, soy sauce, rice vinegar, sesame oil, and hot sauce.  whisk to combine. mixx in carrots,  bean sprouts, and cilantro. toss to combine.  add the drained & cooled noodles.  toss to combine.  
  4. garnish w/ sesame seeds & enjoy!
