Here's a healthy stir-fry to cook this weekend — FitSugar reader sprint2thetable's recipe for a shirataki noodle stir-fry that she posted in our Healthy Recipe group. For those of you watching your weight, shirataki noodles make a great swap for traditional pasta since they're made from tofu!
This was one of the best quickie meals I've done in a while. I love the way peanuts pair with spicy ingredients and the way the creamy sauce coats the noodles. The crunch of the raw carrots and almonds make the texture, and the earthiness of the mushrooms is perfect with the nutty, amino-laced sauce.
Learn how to make this recipe after the break!
Ingredients 1 package Shirataki tofu noodles (you can also use regular pasta) For peanut sauce: 2 T peanut flour (you can also use peanut butter) Directions Prepare noodles according to package instructions. Makes two servings.
