Sweet and Spicy Garlic Noodles (Gluten and Grain Free)

June 11, 2019

You guys will love these sticky garlic noodles.  I use Nupasta noodles which are made from the root of the konjac plant; therefore, they contain no starch.

Konjac noodles high in dietary fibre, and are a great low carb, low calorie, grain and gluten free substitute for pasta or rice noodles.  I do find that they have a distinct taste but seasoning them well and abundantly makes them super delicious!

These noodles taste delicious hot or cold and there’s minimal prep work involved making them a win in my kitchen.  They’re one of my favourite dishes to make when I’m craving Asian noodles …and the whole package is a measly 25 calories….score!

You can enjoy these noodles on their own or as a side dish to your favourite protein. Sometimes I top mine with toasted sesame seeds or slivered almonds for added texture.  


  • 1 package Nupasta noodles
  • ¼ cup Coconut Aminos
  • Red chili flakes to taste
  • 1 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • ¼ cup green onions, chopped


  • Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain and place in a bowl
  • In a small bowl, mix together the coconut aminos, red chili flakes, sesame oil, garlic, and sugar
  • Heat on the stove for 3 minutes
  • Transfer the noodles to a saute pan
  • Pour the sauce over the noodles and stir to coat
  • Top with green onions, stir again to incorporate…and you’re done!
