I reckon you guys will be seeing a few more recipes with Kale from me because I recently purchased a whole bunch of it and after reading all the benefits of it, I think I might eat more Kale. Apparently, 1 serving of Kale contains only 30 calories and has enough vitamin C to last you the whole day as well as vitamin K!
Shirataki is yet another wonderful low calorie ingredient. 200g of these noodles is only 1 calorie or so. So, this dish that I whipped up for dinner contains about 250 calories and it’s mainly from the slices of beef and peanut sauce. It looks like it’s a lot of food but it isn’t in terms of calories and it will keep you quite full due to the fibre.
Now…trust me when I say that peanut sauce/peanut butter goes quite well with beef. And kale. Seriously! I got the idea from a Kale Salad that I ate last month from Luke’s Oyster Bar & Chop House (read my review here). Recipe below serves 1.
1 clove garlic, minced
3 kale leaves, chopped
5 cherry tomatoes
1 packet of shirataki noodles
100g sliced beef (meant for stir fry or shabu shabu)
1 tbsp peanut butter
1 tbsp warm water
1 tsp sesame seed oil
Salt & Pepper to taste
- Heat oil up and fry the garlic until golden brown
- Add in the beef and kale
- While the beef and kale are cooking, mix the peanut butter, sesame seed oil and warm water together
- Add the tomatoes in and continue to stir fry until the beef and vegetables are cooked
- Add in the drained and washed shirataki noodles into the pan and mix well
- Pour the peanut butter mixture into the frying pan/wok and mix well
- Add in salt and pepper to taste
Other things that you can add into this dish are: mushrooms, avocado (only at the end, as a topping) and crushed peanuts. Trust me when I say that peanut sauce goes well with beef. Try it!
