Low Calorie Asian Noodles – an easy vegan and healthy alternatives. Low in calories, high in nutrients and flavors.
Asian Noodles are one of my favorite asian dish. They can be made using various techniques and recipes but also flavors. In this recipe, I am making Low Calorie Asian Noodles using konjac noddles to make the recipe lighter and calorie friendly. Often these dishes can become very high in carbs and added sugar because of the ingredients.
Rest assured that this recipe is healthy, low in carbs and sugar but high in nutrients. You can make it in your instant pot or any kind of pot. Sautéing the vegetables before adding the pasta make them more soft but keep them relatively crunchy. They are also more digestible.
