Nothing like a good bowl of Asian noodles! Now you can have your noodles and stay low carb thanks to Miracle Noodles. So let’s make some Japchae together.

Low Carb Japchae

What is Japchae? It’s a sweet and savory dish made up of stir-fried glass noodles, meat and veggies. Doesn’t that sound delicious?? Now you can make it at home and stay on that low carb lifestyle. Everytime I go to a Korean BBQ restaurant I always have to order their Japchae. I love the sesame flavor with veggies, meat and of course, the glass noodles. This dish is also so easy to customize for your own liking because you can add your fave vegetables, maybe some tofu and you can pick your own protein too. Now how did I make this dish low carb? Thanks to Miracle Noodles I can live my best Asian foodie life and stay low carb. Their products are made from shirataki noodles which are made from the Japanese konjac plant. They’re essentially made out of water and soluble fiber plus they’re way healthier than typical noodles in the market. Grab those chopsticks and show off your low carb Japchae on the ‘gram. Follow us on instagram and use #hsfteam for your food posts so we can give you some love too.
