Keto Pesto Konjac / Shirataki Pasta

Keto Pesto Konjac Shirataki Pasta
Keto Pesto Konjac Shirataki Pasta

I have blogged about konjac (shirataki) noodles before – they are the bomb! Made out of the konjac root, the company Eat Water in the UK has (over time) perfected a noodle-looking food that is so low in carbs, I can fool myself into thinking I am enjoying a good pasta. They are high in fibre, very filling and even look like the real thing. Available in ‘rice’, ‘noodles’, ‘penne’ and ‘fettuccine’ (< my favourite), they are indeed a godsend for those on keto / low-carb diets. I love big, bold flavours that slap me right through the face, and you simply cannot go wrong with an excellent homemade Basil Pesto. My pesto recipe is unbeatable and I highly encourage you to whip up a batch at home – you will never eat store-bought again. By all means, add a lovely portion of grilled chicken to it, just include it in your macros.

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 140°C / 285°F.
  2. Spread the halved tomatoes out onto a tray, cut-side up and place into the oven for 10-12 minutes.
  3. In the meantime, remove the konjac pasta from its packaging and rinse very well under cold, running water. Do not be alarmed by the strange smell – just keep rinsing. Place the pasta into a pan of hot water and simmer on low for several minutes.
  4. Drain the pasta and stir in the Basil Pesto. Season with Pink Himalayan Salt and freshly ground black pepper and serve immediately garnished with the tomatoes.
  5. The full macro-breakdown (and allergens) can be found further down the page. Photographs and recipes on MUD AND LOVE are copyright © Monya Kilian Palmer.

In short, you need not subtract anything further.
