Shirataki Noodle Naengmyeon for Dieters

This is the third recipe of my diet friendly series. I transformed low-calorie shirataki noodles into a Korean bibim noodle dish. The tricky sauce is made simply with mentsuyu sauce.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Shirataki noodles
1 packet
Asian pear or apple
To taste
● Mentsuyu (3x concentrate)
2 tablespoons
● Vinegar
1 tablespoon
● Ground sesame seeds
1 tablespoon
● Sesame oil
1 teaspoon
● Garlic (grated)
1 teaspoon
● Ichimi spice
To taste


1. Boil the shirataki noodles and chill in cold water. Cut into easy to eat lengths. Julienne the cucumber, and thinly slice the Asian pear or apple. Combine the ● ingredients to make the sauce.
2. Make a poached egg. Break an egg into a small container, pierce the yolk with a cocktail stick or bamboo skewer, and microwave for 40 seconds at 500 W.
3. Put the drained shirataki noodles on a serving plate. Add the sauce and mix well. Top with kimchi, cucumber, thinly sliced apple or Asian pear and the egg to finish.

Story Behind this Recipe

I'm always on a diet, so I'm constantly thinking up recipes that use shirataki noodles like regular noodles. It's a bother to make a sauce with lots of ingredients, so I use bottled mentsuyu noodle sauce to make an easy sauce.
