Soup Sunday- Guilt Free Chicken Soup

Guilt Free Chicken Soup

32 ounces chicken bone broth ( I buy it by the box in the soup aisle)
1 boneless chicken breast
7 ounce package of Shirataki pasta fettuccini noodles
½ bunch green onions
1 cup of baby carrots chopped
¼ lb snow peas
4 ounces white mushrooms sliced
1 tablespoon chopped ginger
1 tablespoon lemon grass paste
1 tablespoon fish sauce
1 tablespoon red curry paste

Prepare shirataki noodles according to package directions.  Set aside.  Put broth in a stock pot. Add the chicken breast, cook over low heat until the breast is done. Remove from the broth and shred.  Return the chicken to the broth.

Add all the rest of the ingredients except for the noodles.  Heat slowly at a simmer for about ten minutes.

Cut the noodles in half and add to the soup. 

Serves 4

Shirataki pasta are guilt free noodles. They have zero calories, are soy free, gluten free, carb free, cholesterol free and vegan. The ones I used for this soup are marketed under the miracle noodle brand. I got mine on Thrive, but they are available at Amazon as well. I have also seen them in the produce section.

What is Shiratki?
It is the root of a plant called Konnyaku Imo.  It has been used for its health benefits in China and Japan for 2000 years.

Shiraki is made from the souluble fiber of the plant containing the fiber known as glucomannan.  It is low in calories.

The noodles absore the flavors of any sauce or dish you prepare.
