Zero Carb Noodles!
Last week we decided to get a bunch of Shirataki Miracle Noodles after getting one in our keto krate a few months ago. We got the variety pack which includes 2 packs each of fettuccine, rice and angel hair “pasta”. These zero carb noodles are made from an ingredient called konnyaku flour. Konnyaku flour comes from the konjac root, which consists of 50% water and 40% dietary fiber, and is used in many recipes as a thickener and a vegan alternative to gelatin. It’s gluten-free, fat-free and extremely high in fiber, which is great for low carb diets! Miracle Noodles have less than a gram of carbs in a 3 oz. serving. They’re filling, low carb, have a texture similar to traditional pasta and taste very mild.
After you cut the bag open to drain the water, you might notice a bad smell – this is normal! You need to drain the water from the bag completely, rinse the noodles and then add them to boiling water for 2 minutes. After that, throw them onto a pan for a minute or two to finish drying them out. When they’re in the pan, add whatever sauce you want (like our alfredo below) and anything else you want to mix in like chicken or meatballs and they’ll taste and smell amazing.

Our recipe for Low Carb Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo is not only easy to make but has only a few ingredients you need to use. Best of all, each serving is only 1 gram of carbs which comes from the garlic cloves. If you want, you can omit the garlic cloves and make this meal ultra low carb, but we think its flavor is pretty important to the overall feel of the dish. After all, what’s an Italian recipe without garlic??
- 2 cloves garlic
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 4 tbsp grated parmesan
- 1/2 tsp dried basil
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 2 boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 1 bag Miracle Noodle fettuccine noodles
- Mince garlic gloves and add to them a small pan on low heat with the butter for 2 minutes.
- Add the heavy cream and let simmer for 2 more minutes.
- Add 1 tablespoon of grated Parmesan at a time and stir. Repeat until you've added all the Parmesan. Add salt, pepper to taste and the dried basil. Let this simmer for 3-5 minutes on a very low heat until it thickens a bit.
- Pound the chicken thighs to about 1/2" thickness. Add the olive oil to a pan on medium heat and fry the chicken thighs on each side for about 7 minutes.
- Take the chicken thighs off the pan and shred them using two forks or meat shredding claws.
- Set a pot of water to boil. Drain the water from your Miracle Noodle bag and rinse the noodles for a few minutes. Boil them for 2 minutes.
- Add the noodles to the pan you fried the chicken in and then add the shredded chicken back as well as the Alfredo sauce. Mix for 2 minutes on medium heat and serve!

These noodles are, indeed, incredible and miraculous. They make a great gluten-free substitute for many noodle dishes. I especially think they lend well to many Asian-flavor dishes, such as lo mein or stir fries.
Love this! My favorite way to make low carb fettuccine alfredo is with zucchini noodles. I’ll have to try it with these next!
Thanks, Maya! Zoodles are quick and easy but these shirataki noodles are a nice change of pace. Their texture is very similar to pasta.
