Guys! I finally found it. I found a decent low carb noodle alternative. Edamame spaghetti! It’s a perfect replacement for gluten-filled noodles! For this low carb edamame spaghetti recipe, I paired it with a zero carb sauce.
I stumbled past it the other day at the grocery store and figured I’d give it a try. At 13 net carbs per 100g, I was a bit skeptical but 100g goes a long way! You can definitely cut it in half and be fulfilled, only eating 6 net carbs.
This pasta is great because over half of it is made up of dietary fibre. Sometimes on keto, it can be difficult to get in a regular amount of fibre but this is perfect.
So you will notice that I called this recipe low carb rather than keto – that’s because the WHOLE carbs for 1 serving is over 10g. So if you count whole carbs, this could make or break you for the day. HoweverI highly recommend trying it at least once.
Now, I will say, straight out of the package, it does have a bit of a smell, but that goes away after boiling them. I know many will also wonder if there is an aftertaste and I will say it is SUBTLE. I did notice a teeny tiny aftertaste but honestly, it’s so subtle.
Also – the texture of this pasta is EXACTLY like regular spaghetti! Yall have got to try this! I made mine with a zero carb sauce – butter, eggs and cheese!
