Spaghetti

I think this is the best spaghetti ever, even though it does use low carb konjac noodles!

Miracle Noodle Angel Hair

Above is the one I used, and sell.

Here is the recipe! It would be an S if following Trim Healthy Mama!

Spaghetti
1 – 7 ounce bag konjac noodles, angel hair
1 Tablespoon coconut or olive oil
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced green pepper
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/4 cup browned hamburger (I take from the family sauce I am making).
1 – 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
1 1/2 teaspoon erythritol
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon mineral salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

Toppings
Grated cheddar cheese
1 small zucchini chopped and sautéed
1 small tomato
Salt
Black pepper

Instructions:
Rinse konjac noodles. Sauté noodles, pepper, onion and garlic in the olive oil until the vegetables are soft. Blend the can of tomatoes.Add the blended tomatoes and all the other ingredients besides the toppings to the noodles and vegetables. Simmer on a medium low heat for at least 1/2 hour, or till the juice from the tomatoes has cooked in and the noodles and sauce are not soupy. Meanwhile, sauté the zucchini, chop the tomato and grate some cheese.

To serve, place the spaghetti on your plate. Sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese. Top with first the sautéed zucchini, then the chopped tomato. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Enjoy!

Broccoli Noodle Soup

A good, warm soup for lunch, or even supper. Originally, I tried to make this just a small individual ‘diet’ soup for a quick supper for myself, while my kids had more ‘regular’ food. They were unhappy about this arrangement, thinking my soup, and my ‘diet’ noodles better than theirs. Konjac noodles can be very different at first. Rather chewy. I was not impressed the first time I tried them. But now, I love them. And so do my kids, I guess. What’s to complain about them liking my food, and liking healthy food. ❤️ Although they don’t need 0 calorie noodles, and eat whole grain rice noodles more often, this soup is a perfect one to be able to share a few of them with the kids.

If you are following THM this would be an S.

If you are really in a hurry you can substitute canned chicken for the chicken breasts.

You can also leave out the noodles. Thicken the soup with glucomannan, and serve it over the noodles.

Konjac noodles, or shiritake noodles can be found in the produce department at some Wal-Marts, from health food stores, or on line. I try to get the ones without soy or other ingredients. If you’d like to order them from me, I’ll show you which ones I sell and used in this soup. Make sure to take advantage of my flat rate shipping and stock up on some other items at the same time! 😉

Miracle Noodle Angel Hair

Broccoli Noodle Soup
2 bags angel hair konjac noodles
2 small or 1 large onions
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 14.5 ounce cans chicken broth
2 quarts water
2 large chicken breasts
1/2-2 teaspoons red pepper flakes (how hot do you like things?)
2 Tablespoons mineral salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 13.5 ounce cans coconut milk
2 pounds frozen broccoli

Instructions:
Drain and rinse the konjac noodles. They will smell funny. Fishy, maybe. Cover them with water in a small pot and boil them for awhile. Maybe 10 minutes to 1/2 hour.

While they are boiling, cut the onion and sauté it in the coconut oil.

Add the chicken broth, water, chicken and spices. Drain the noodles and add them, too.

At least bring it to a boil if you are in a hurry, and make sure the chicken is done. But it is better to cook it longer. Up to an hour on low is good. This allows the konjac noodles to absorb the flavors and to be more tender. When the chicken is done, remove it and let it cool for a few minutes before dicing it and adding it back to the soup.

Just before serving add the coconut milk and broccoli. Continue simmering just till the broccoli is done and while it is still bright green.
