I’m always looking for ways to recreate foods or meals that a person with phenylketonuria can’t eat. Sometimes I run into serious difficulties, but most of the time I get conclusive results. This is the case with this Asian ramen noodle recipe that I tried today. The magic ingredient? Konjac ramen noodles. 😁
Konjac is truly a wonderful ingredient. Almost no carbs, very few calories and no protein! Plus, it’s a root, so no flour, no gluten, etc. It’s really perfect for anyone who wants to pay attention to their health, their carbohydrate intake and, of course in our case, their protein intake.
- A bag of konjac ramen noodles
- Shallot – 1/2 cup
- Minced garlic – to taste
- Green pepper – 1/2 cup
- Sesame oil
- Butter (optional)
- Soy sauce – 1tbsp
Start by frying the vegetables in a skillet over low heat with sesame oil. Then place the noodles in the same pan after rinsing and dry them well (you can use a paper towel). Sauté for a long time until it starts to sizzle a little, then add a knob of butter to finish with the soy sauce. Simmer a little and you’re done.
Let me know if you enjoyed this recipe in the comments section or on my social networks. Bon appétit!
