Japchae easy recipe using Shirataki|KETO, SIBO, Candida diet

First of all, let me introduce the ingredients that I am using for this recipe. Even though some of the ingredients are from Asia, these are available on Amazon nowadays.


Soy sauce

>>>Ohsawa Organic Tamari, Gluten-Free

Tamari soy sauce is commonly gluten-free and contains 1 gram of carbs per table spoon. I used to use normal Kikkoman-soy sauce, but this tamari soy sauce is good alternative for your health.

Shirataki Tofu

>>> House Foods, Noodle Tofu Shirataki Spaghetti

I recently found this product as an alternative of Shirataki. Shirataki is Japanese low-carb pasta, but is quite hard to find in a normal supermarket. I would say the texture of this product is too soggy compared with Italian pasta, but is a great alternative for Japanese shirataki.

>>>Miracle Noodle Fettuccine Pasta – Plant Based Shirataki

This is normal Shirataki. This product is also KETO, and can be used for this recipe as well.

Chili Bean Sauce

This is my favorite sauce.

>>> LKK Chili Bean Sauce

This is Chinese Sichuan style chili sauce. It is great for many spicy dishes!

Whole Earth (Sugar alternative)

>>>Whole Earth Sweetener

Whole Earth is made of Stevia and Monk Fruit and has no calories. It is a great choice for sweetening food! I am literary using this for everything as sugar alternative.

Japanese sake

>>> Kikkoman Ryorishi Cooking Sake

Sake is Japanese alcohol, and is one of the basic ingredients for many of Japanese dishes. There are not so many selections for Sake. I am usually using this Kikkoman Sake.
