Thai Mango and Vegetable Noodles
These Thai inspired noodles are a quick & easy dish that settles the craving of spicy, tangy, salty & sweet with these flavorful noodles. This noodle concoction is so compelling due to the variety of ingredients: tofu noodles, veggies, herbs and fruit (mango). The cool mango brings a sweet sparkle in your mouth after eating a little heat from the sauce consisting of lemongrass, ginger & Sriracha. For those of you have been reluctant to try Shirataki noodles, this is a perfect dish for it. These tofu noodles take in all the flavor of the sauce and you will not believe that its not a “real” noodle. Trust me; my hubby didn’t even know the difference 😉 The portion size is huge and still low in WW points plus, Calories & Fat. I serve with a 3 oz Fillet Mignon for a hearty meal…With the steak its only a 8 point meal!! **Don’t like steak? Substitute chicken or if you are vegetarian/vegan substitute with mushrooms.
