“Shirataki noodles come from the konjac plant found in East and Southeast Asia, and are practically carb-less, winning them the nickname: the miracle noodle. Being 97% water and 3% fiber, these translucent and gelatinous noodles soak up surrounding flavors like sponges. Stir-fried in a pan with tangy kimchi and the beloved Korean red chili paste, gochujang, yields a creamy noodle dish that’s punched with spice, sweetness, and acidity. The fresh cucumber lightens up the dish, and the nori and sesame seeds bring a pleasant crunch to each bite. Serve with a boiled egg (as we do here) or a fried one. If you don't have or can't find shirataki noodles, you can use thick, chewy udon noodles instead.”
