Kelp Noodles are a sea vegetable in the form of a needle. Just thinking about a vegetable that lives in the sea makes me want to eat them. Kelp Noodles are made of Kelp, Sodium alginate (which is sodium salt extracted from a brown seaweed) and water. Kelp Noodles are fat-free, gluten free and super duper low in carbohydrates and calories. They also provide a rich source of trace minerals. The noodles themselves are a different texture. Not slimy at all but sort of rubbery and very crunchy. There is not much of a taste to them. Kelp Noodles can be used in salads, stir fry’s, soups and casseroles. We have been replacing pasta with Kelp Noodles.
Kelp Noodles do not require any cooking. You will find them either in the refrigerated section near the eggs or pickles or they may be found on a shelf near your noodles and pastas. Take them out of the package and cut them if needed. I cut mine in half for my stir fry dish. Chili Paste is ready to be added into the mix.
This recipe is really easy for either dinner or lunch. Healthy, nutritious and does not rob my body of energy.
