I love noodles. I consider anything made with noodles as comfort food. Just the act of slurping noodles is comforting. It puts you in the moment, enjoying your food, forgetting about everything else. I love how noodles are long and chewy, and how they seem to absorb any sauce you pour on them. Which brings me to the sauce. The sauce I used in this lo mein recipe is amazing. It’s simplicity itself: soy sauce, peanut butter, red pepper flakes, sesame oil. But it all comes together beautifully. So good.
If you use shirataki noodles in this lo mein recipe, the added bonus is that you’ll save yourself quite a few calories and carbs, and you’ll be stuffed. I had to check the nutrition info twice to make sure this comes at under 400 calories per serving – these are 6 huge portions, and I was so full. And despite the bad rap that shirataki noodles get in terms of texture, I always say and I’ll say it again, that when prepared properly, the texture is fabulous. Plus you get the benefits of glucomannan, the fiber shirataki noodles are made of. Click for the recipe
