Un-Cheese Cream Sauce and Kelp Noodles

Our newest noodle love is kelp.  Kelp is basically a type of seaweed.  Kelp noodles are clear and have a firm consistency but with all the softness of a pasta noodle.  They have a slight bite when eaten right out of the pack but tend to soften once put in some hot soup or broth. 

I wanted to try something new with these noodles, versus the usual broth i’ve been putting them in.  The noodles i used had a vegan cheese sauce recipe on it.  I decided to try it and add my on twist and turn to it, of course.  Here’s what i came up with, and as usual it was a family hit!

Ingredients

5 carrots, thinly sliced

5 mini chili peppers (birds eye chili peppers), finely chopped

5 carrots, thinly sliced

1 small red bell pepper, sliced

Olive oil for sauteing

3 TBSP nutritional yeast

3 TBSP organic, unpasteurized soy sauce

1/8 cup black truffle infused olive oil (regular olive oil is fine too)

2 cups raw almond butter (use 1 cup for a thinner sauce)

3 cups water

course celtic sea salt to taste

1 package kelp noodles

2 duck eggs, boiled and sliced

1 bunch of cilantro, chopped for garnish

 

Directions

In a large wok, turn heat to medium.  Add oil to wok.  Once oil is hot, add carrots and saute until they start to become tender.  Next add chili peppers and bell peppers and continue to saute.

In a small bowl, mix yeast, soy sauce, and truffle oil.  Add almond butter to yeast mixture and stir until combined.  Add almond mixture to wok and stir.  Be sure to break the almond butter mixture up with the back of cooking spoon, as it will be thick.  Add water, once cup at a time.  Make sure to stir mixture, thoroughly after each addition of water.  Add more water to reach the desired consistency.  Once desired consistency is reached, add kelp noodles and mix.  Remove from heat, add sliced duck eggs and sprinkle with cilantro.  Serve hot and enjoy!

  1. I”ve never had kelp noodles…. I don’t know if i’ve even ever seen them. I’ll have to keep an eye out!

    1. Kelp noodles are my newest obsession. I like how they don’t make me feel weighted down like pasta does sometimes. I’ve only seen them in my local natural grocers and on the internet. These noodles are totally awesome!
