Low-Carb 'Italian Flag'

Updated on November 15, 2016

Before getting started, I did this totally absent minded. But after taking a picture of it, it looked a bit like the Italian flag, so I took to courage to name it so. By the way, it was Italian inspired.

Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 1 serving
  • Enoki Mushroom Spaghetti -, -
  • 1/2 bunch Enoki Mushroom, separated

  1. Put heat on medium. For the 'spaghetti', drizzle olive and add garlic on one side.
  2. Once the garlic starts to sizzle, add the Enoki mushrooms to one side and cook until it resembles normal noodles. Lightly salt and add a pinch of black pepper.
  3. Add the tomatoes, basil and oregano to the mushrooms, stir and put heat to medium low.
  4. Put in a dab of butter and garlic in the middle of the pan for the string beans. Add the string beans and stir until coated with the butter and garlic.

Cast your vote for Low-Carb 'Italian Flag'

I went from heavy wheat addict, to gluten-free, and now... removed most of the carbs from my diet. The surprising bit is, as my brain had cut away it's crazy tie with wheat, I now find that it actually doesn't taste that good. It has evolved from soul food to a bland, mushy, gluey substance.

The Enoki mushroom, a common, and wonderfully cheap ingredient in the Asian cuisine suites as a perfect natural noodle. No need to pre-cook, not too much flavour, and slightly chewier than pasta al dante. Despite being simple, and humble. Enoki mushrooms are packed with selenium, amino acids, Vitamin B1, fiber, helps preventing dementia, gives a high five for white blood cells, even helps iron consumption and much more.
