I’ve been wanting to reduce the brown rice pasta my family consumes…hello Kelp Noodles!

Wow, with a tasty sauce added to these noodles, gluten and gluten-free pasta lovers can rejoice at this tasty and healthy alternative to traditional carbohydrate loaded pasta. My kids and husband gobbled this Stir Fry down…and this includes my French hubby who grew up on baguettes and real al dente pasta. No complaining here! And seriously these noodles are so versatile and ready to use right out of the bag, that I think this is going to be my new favorite quick lunch for my kiddos after school.

Those watching their carbohydrate intake, can rejoice as these noodles are virtually free of carbohydrates, yet are rich in calcium, iodine and iron. Use your imagination and this recipe can be adapted to your needs. I used tempeh in this dish, but feel free to omit it or opt for chicken, shrimp, etc.

Please note, the only soy I personally recommend be consumed is fermented soy, including miso and tempeh (not tofu and soy milk). Enjoy!
