Low Carb Vegetarian Laksa

This Vegetarian Laksa is creamy, spicy, and flavorful sans the meat. It’s low carb too because I used Shirataki noodles instead of the usual egg noodles…
Low Carb Vegetarian Laksa

I’ve always wanted to be a vegetarian. But my love for food has always gotten the best of me. Even if I’m trying to avoid meat, if there’s a meat dish on the table, I always have to have at least a bite just to have a taste. But I love vegetables too and I could go meatless as long as my food tastes delicious.

Say, for example, this Low Carb Vegetarian Laksa… It doesn’t have any meat at all but it packs a punch because it’s creamy and full of flavor. So even if we could already feel the summer heat, go lang ng go because it was so good!  Ykaie actually remarked naang init na nga ng panahon, Laksa pa ang lunch namin!” And take note, this was a bit spicy pa which made our foreheads sweat!

Low carb-ing it was possible by using shirataki noodles instead of the usual noodles. Eating a bowl (or even two) didn’t make me feel heavy even if I was already full.

Low Carb Vegetarian Laksa

I know you might be wondering what’s in this bowl? Well, the most delicious and creamy Laksa soup (EVER!) poured over shirataki noodles then topped with blanched mung beans sprouts and red bell peppers, fried tofu, chopped cilantro and spring onion. And garnished with a lime wedge for squeezing and pepper flakes for more heat. Woohoo!

Since it’s meatless, it’s totally healthy. And it can be eaten through out Lent.

What else can you ask for? Right? I hope this recipe makes it to your dinner table this week.

I bought the Laksa paste at Landmark Supermarket at ₱150/pack. You’re welcome.
