Skinny noodles shirataki review.

I finally got a chance to try my skinny noodles last night. I wish I had tried them earlier. I am super impressed. If you are into asian dishes like stir-fries, soups, pad-thai…this is IT. The noodles were very thin. They really have no taste. Very neutral. They pick up the flavor of the sauce you put them in. So versatile. My next plan is to put them in a some kind of soup.

20140703-110840-40120944.jpgYou can use whatever veggies you want for yours. Just chop them all up.

20140703-110841-40121671.jpgAdd a bit of oil to your pan and get the veggies cooking.

20140703-110839-40119863.jpgWhile my veggies were cooking I started draining the noodles. I drained them 3 times.

20140703-110842-40122631.jpgI cooked my chicken on the side as the veggies were cooking. I can’t find my wok so the process took a bit longer!

20140703-110843-40123194.jpgAdd cooked chicken and spices. I used some ginger and some ponzu sauce + a tbsp of peanut butter.

I used a paper towel and got out any extra water from the noodles. I simple popped them into the pan and mixed everything together.

20140703-110843-40123759.jpgThe final product. It was delish. Peanut/soy sauce was amazing and the noodles added a lot of volume with barely any calories! Super excited to try the rest of these guys!



Don’t forget I am running a giveaway for these noodles right over here– 5 packs!

It’s a Thai life after all.

Happy Wednesday friends. Both the hubs and I had appointments in Key West. I am typing this blog from Thai life. A floating barge in Garrison Bight. I am so on this Asian obsession! I can’t stop! We split some Phuket vegetarian spring rolls. Filled with glass noodles, shrimp, and chicken. Delightful and light. Served with two spicy sauces. I think they cost around eight dollars. Perfect starter. My husband got shrimp Tom yum medium, and chicken panang medium. I went with the medium seafood Tom yum. It was filled with shrimp, scallops, and grouper. It came with a side of jasmine Rice. Amazing authentic flavor! I really enjoyed it. Next time I will try thai hot though. It was nice watching the boat come into the docks, and the dolphins playing in their pods. We were the only table in the joint. Their iced tea was perfect, locals special prices, and you can’t beat the view. Go Thai life!
