32g Protein Creamy Low Carb Noodles

32g Protein Creamy Low Carb Noodles

| CREAMY LOW CARB NOODLES |

Creamy and a little cheesy hearts of palm noodles paired with crispy baked tofu crumbles and green onions. It’s a super satisfying meal with loads of flavour while being light on the carbs. I’ve offered macros for both the entire meal, as well as just the noodles and sauce because the tofu crumble does add an additional 7g carbs to the meal and “low carb” may be different to you than me!

Recipe notes:

Palmini Noodles are the star of the show and what makes this noodle bowl so low carb. Their noodles are made from hearts of palm and are only 60 calories and 12g carbs for the entire bag! The noodles have a nice crunch and texture and pair perfectly with this creamy sauce. Shop eatpalmini.com entire low carb pasta line at 30% off using code "EVANNRYAN".

As mentioned above, the tofu crumble has 7g carbs per serving. This comes from the tofu itself as well as the date syrup. With this knowledge you can use the tofu crumble as suggested, or pick a protein of your choice!

The liquid aminos are by Bragg's. It's my go-to for soy sauce as it's only two ingredients: soy beans and purified water. This makes it naturally higher in protein as well as being gluten free. 

I'm sure you've noticed the recurring date syrup in my recipes, but I just truly love it! Its a great all natural sweetener with additional benefits like potassium and magnesium. Shop my favourite date syrup at dvashorganics.com and get 20% off using code "EVANNRYAN".

The tahini I used was really thick, so 2 tbsp added enough volume to create a nice and creamy texture. If your tahini is more runny, add 1/3 cup water instead of the 1/2 cup listed. This will allow you to control the consistency better.
