Amazing and Extremely Low-Cal Tofu Noodles..

22 Mar

FILLING PASTA DISHES 60-86 CALORIES!!

If you can find it at your grocery store, tofu noodles or yam noodles are delicious replacements for pasta and can act as a base for any dish. Plus Tofu noodles are only 20 calories a serving and yam noodles are only 5!

They taste very plain, but I’ve found it is the perfect food to have around the house (especially when I wanna stuff my face) because it is filling like pasta, but no where near the calories..

My own very simplified pasta recipe based of one listed on the website is as follows…

Pasta Marinara
86 calories a serving

Whole bag of Tofu Noodles (2 servings)
1/4 cup of marinara sauce

Prepare like pasta! et voila. I would suggest throwing some frozen veggies in there to make it more nutritious. But using this recipe as a base, thinking of all the really filling 100 calorie dishes you can have.

Tip: Try cooking these noodles plain, and then covering them with a low-cal teriyaki sauce I learned about from a diabetic girl I used to tutor. Just take soy sauce and add Splenda to taste. It makes a yummy version of Terikyaki sauce. Teriyaki Tofu Noodles would make a similarly low-cal meal. 40 calories for the whole bag of noodles! and about 20 calories for the soy sauce!

    I’ve tried a version of these at Konjac Foods (http://www.konjacfoods.com/) — they work great in a soup, sauce, or stir fried with veggies (no oil, I use broth instead). I highly recommend them.
