Shirataki Tofu Noodles in Peanut Sauce

shiratakipeanut

A part of "gettinghealthy." I admit I was dubious about shirataki noodles, but this dish is delicious. Please be sure to rinse and dry fry your noodles out of the package. This helps both the texture and gets rid of the weird funky smell of these interesting noodles! Filling and super tasty - this clocks in at 245 calories and 17g of protein  - I'm definitely making these again.
