1 bag shirataki noodles, rinsed and drained
1 c. kale, torn into bite sized pieces
handful red onion, chopped
1/2 jalapeño with seeds, sliced
2 sundried tomatoes, chopped
slices fresh or roasted red pepper
sea salt and pepper
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1 T. Smart Balance Vegan butter (or olive oil)
5 cloves fresh garlic, minced
Drain and rinse the shirataki noodles. Bring the noodles to a boil in a saucepan for about 4 minutes then drain. In a microwave safe bowl combine the minced garlic, vegan butter, and olive oil. Nuke for about 30-45 seconds until the garlic is fragrant and the butter is melted.
Toss noodles with kale, red pepper, jalapeño, and sundried tomatoes. Drizzle the noodles and kale with the garlic sauce or just plain old olive oil. Adding the good monounsaturated fat from olive oil aids in the absorption of vitamins and minerals from the veggies. Here it helps with absorption of the vitamin K, B, and iron in the kale among other nutrients.
