Before I ever recommend anything, I always try it first. From juices to footwear, exercises to music.
I’ve been vegetarian for many years and also wheat free, and tonight I will be tucking into a plate of Zero Noodles. They have so few calories that you burn whatever calories they do have whilst you are eating them. They are also gluten free and organic.
Sounds too good to be true? It will all come down to how they taste, and I’ll tell you that later! If the taste matches the other impressive features, then they might just be a great way to eat healthily and help control your weight.
(How many people are now praying for Zero Chocolate? That would make a few pounds for the inventor).
Try this lovely, quick recipe for your noodles. You can use whatever vegetables you can get your hands on.
1 packet Zero Noodles (200gms, 7 Oz )
4 spring onions, sliced crosswise, greens and whites separated
About 1 cup purple cabbage, shredded
1/4 cup frozen beans
About 1 cup thinly sliced multi colored capsicum
1 medium carrot, julienned
1 medium celery, thinly sliced
1/2-1 cup bean sprouts
1-2 garlic, finely minced
1-2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1-2 tbsp chilli sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Boil the noodles as per the package instructions. Add the salt and oil to the water.
2 When 85-90% cooked, drain the noodles and toss lightly with cold water. Drain completely and set aside until ready to use.
3 Heat a Wok with about 1 tsp of oil until it smokes. Make sure you have all the vegetables ready as its all about quick cooking. Add the garlic followed by spring onion greens, bell peppers, cabbage, celery, carrots and beans. Toss on high flame for 2 minutes. Don’t leave the vegetables on their own since at this stage they can get lonely and easily burn. You need to keep tossing them.
4 When you find the vegetables softening slightly, add the noodles, soy sauce, salt, pepper, chilli sauce, bean sprouts along with spring onion greens.
5 Give it a good toss and saute for another minute or so.
