Low Carb Char Kway Teow


Another beautiful dish that you can make from Shirataki noodles is Char Kway Teow. I still prefer the original Char Kway Teow of course, because I love rice noodles to death, but being able to eat such a dish during a low-carb diet is heavenly...!

  • 200 g Shirataki noodles
  • 100 g prawns
  • 1 Chinese sausage, sliced
  • 100 bean sprouts
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 1 egg
  • 1-2 tbs pork lard (or substitute with olive oil)
  • 1 tbs minced garlic
  • 1 tbs fish sauce
  • 2 tbs oyster sauce
  • 1 tbs sambal oelek
  • Pepper to taste
  • Heat the pork lard in a wok.
  • Add the minced garlic, prawns and Chinese sausage. Stir fry for 2 minutes until aromatic.
  • Add fish sauce, sambal oelek and oyster sauce. Simmer for 1 minute.
  • Quickly add the noodles and stir until well combined.
  • Toss in the egg, bean sprouts, green onions and add a dash of pepper. Stir fry for another 1 minute.
  • Serve!

Eat the noodles with the Szechuan crispy chili in oil, as I told you in the previous post. It makes it even yummier :)!

  14. I make low carb char kway teow using zucchini noodles (zucchini thinly spiral cut into long thin noodles). You need to get out the excess water by salting, resting in a colander and then rinsing and squuezing. The result is excellent.
