Have You Tried Slim Pasta?

Slim Pasta Stir Fry

Have You Tried Slim Pasta?

  |   Savoury Recipes   |   3 Comments

Normal anything with the word “slim” on the packet I avoid like the plague.  I find that many products that claim to be “fat free” or “slimming” are usually full of sugar; and as sugar is converted into fat the whole “fat free’ claim is one big FAT lie!  So it goes without saying I was more than a little dubious when I received some packets of Slim Pasta, but must say I was pleasantly surprised.

 For starters:

There is NO added sugar in the ingredients

And they use purified water – Hmm perhaps we are onto something good here!

The main ingredient in the pasta is the konjac plant - a vegetable grown in mainly Asian countries. It is low in calories (only 6.4 per serve) and high in fiber.

To test out the Slim Pasta pasta I included it in a stir fry I made last night, here is what I used.

Slim Pasta Veggie Stir Fry

 1 packet of Angel Hair Slim Pasta

1 broccoli finely chopped

1 green pepper finely chopped

1 carrot finely chopped

Firm tofu of choice finely chopped

1 onion finely chopped

2 cloves garlic finely chopped

Soya sauce

Coconut oil

Steps

Saute onion and garlic in the oil

Add in veggies and tofu

Cook Pasta the pasta following the steps on the packet (it only takes one minute!) and add to stir fry

Serve and eat using chop sticks if you want to be really authentic!

 The pasta is more like noodles than traditional pasta, making them perfect for a stir fry. Why not give them a go? I’d be interested to hear what you think!

Questions: Do you like pasta? Are you keen to find a low calorie alternative? Would you try Slim Pasta?

    I am obsessed with pasta, and I don't look for a low calorie alternative, I think carbs are one of those things that are healthy in any balanced diet. I'd try slim pasta though, heck I'd try any. lol.

    This looks so fresh and yummy, I especially love tofu when done in this way.
