Think being keto means you can never slurp down another noodle? Not so!
While, yes, classic wheat pasta—and even super-trendy chickpea pasta—will have to go, there is a type of noodle you can enjoy without overloading on carbs. In fact, they’re practically carb-free.
Meet shirataki noodles: Made from the starch of a yam-like Japanese plants called konjac, these noodles contain just about 10 calories and two grams of carbs (both of which are fiber) per serving.
With a somewhat sticky, rice noodle-like texture, they’re a great way to turn your favorite Asian-inspired dishes low-carb. So if you’re keto and craving a bowl of noodles, grab yourself a bag of shirataki noodles and whip up this keto-friendly ramen!
