If you are trying to reduce your calories and/or carbs, but still want to have chow mein, this is your lucky day. This noodle dish is made from Healthy Noodles from Costco which is a Yam flour based noodle. It is no carbs and very low calories. And the best part? It tastes yummy!
I was a little skeptical at first when I saw these ‘Healthy Noodles’ at Costco. They came in a pack of 6 packets of 8 ounces each. Each package contains 2 servings of 25 calories each and zero carbs. So, the 4 packages used in this recipe is 200 calories with zero carbs! I know, crazy, right?
I was super skeptical, but I figured I’d try to make them as much as I could, like a chow mein (since I was making other Chinese dishes for dinner). I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did I like it, by my husband liked it, my 14 year old son liked it and my friend liked it. That’s a pretty wide range of tastes there, and that says something. I didn’t even tell my husband what they were until he had eaten half his plate.
The main difference I find is that these yam based noodles don’t soak up as much of the liquid as others. So, go light on the liquids at first and add more if needed, otherwise you might need to drain your dish before serving.
So, now I’m hooked. Yam noodles are my thing! Go get your Healthy Noodles from Costco…
