I love Pad Thai but it is one of the heavier ethnic dishes that I crave. Today, I’m sharing a recipe to lighten up the classic meal using Shirataki Noodles.
Shirataki Noodles are gluten free, non-GMO tofu noodles. One package has just 20 calories! Thanks to their massive volume and low calorie content, they leave you feeling full without realizing your missing anything! You can buy them at Whole Foods or your local grocery store in the tofu refrigerated section.
I will be the first to admit, I am not a recipe maven so I used the help of the internet to find a recipe that worked best.
