Portabella Shirataki Noodles

I am thrilled to have discovered the shirataki noodle! Compliments of Whole Foods for less than $2 and only 40 Calories in an entire pack. These would be great in any pasta dish and will be  regular in 
my fridge!

Here's how I made it

1 pack shirataki noodles 
1 chopped portabella mushroom
3 cloves diced garlic
1/2 yellow or white onion
1 cup cooked brussel sprout slaw (Trader Joe's)
1/4 C Gyoza sauce (Trader Joe's)
2 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs Aioli mustard (or spicy dijon mustard)
1/4 CBalsamic Vinegar

In one pan saute the brussel sprout slaw (or cabbage) with 1tsp olive oil, salt/pepper and 1/4C Balsamic Vinegar. In another larger pan, heat olive oil, garlic and onion to sweat out, add mushroom and simmer on medium. Strain and cook the noodles in a microwave for 1 min, add to the large pan. When slaw had simmered down, add this to the large pan, along with the noodles. Add the Sauces and voila! My first semi-asian dish was a success!

Shirataki noodles are great for experimental cooking since it is not expensive, it mixes well with most flavours and it is healthy as it has only little to no calorie content. This is also recommended for people who are so busy with work and barely have enough time for cooking.
