Dinner is not complete with hot dishes, especially soups. So today we will introduce you to a soup that will align with your diet meals, the Coconut Chicken Noodle Soup. This dish is very easy to cook and will not take you too much time in the kitchen. It has a fantastic aroma and taste that will surely capture everyone at the dining table, even the non-dieters.
The ingredients of the dish are particularly easy to find and affordable as well. To start off, the first thing we need is the shirataki noodles – perfect low-carb noodles for keto. It is a Japan-made noodle that is popularly known for its exquisite color and taste. This is also the perfect ingredient in our recipe as shirataki is known to be low in calories and carbohydrates content.
In a 113-gram serving, it only has 15 calories and 4 grams of carbohydrates, significantly lower than that of the regular spaghetti with 158 calories and 30 grams of carbs. Aside from giving us the feeling of satiety, shirataki is also known to reduce the bad cholesterol levels in our body.
Another essential ingredient in the dish is coconut milk. This liquid has a great amount of a substance called medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) which has been proven to help reduce weight. Coconut milk also helps in increasing the levels of good cholesterol in our body, significantly contributing to our overall heart health.
The dish will only take 15 minutes to prepare and in no time at all, you and your family can enjoy your meal with this very sophisticated and healthy soup to add in you festive dinner table.
