If you love noodles but are avoiding starchy foods, I have the perfect swap for you! Trader Joe’s sells organic broccoli slaw in their produce section for about a dollar a bag! The shredded broccoli stalks resemble noodles:
I’ve been trying to think of good substitutes for pastas. While spaghetti squash is the most obvious choice, long shreds of broccoli stalks and strings of zucchini sounded good too.
This recipe imparts a chow mein like flavor and texture to the broccoli:
1. Sauté 1 tsp garlic in 1 tbs olive oil.
Add the broccoli slaw and continue to sauté until it begins to soften.
2. Add a splash of chicken stock,
reduce heat, and cover to steam for about 5 mins.
3. Once the “noodles” have reached desired doneness, season with coconut aminos (or soy sauce), salt, and pepper.
