Keto Noodle Options

plate of zoodles The two most common low carb noodles used on the keto diet are zucchini noodles, also known as “zoodles”, and shirataki noodles. Either can be used in this recipe and both are delicious with the low carb pumpkin alfredo sauce. If you are using zucchini noodles, you can purchase them already spiralized or you can spiralize the squash yourself. Depending on the size of your whole zucchini it will probably take 2-3 zucchini to yield 6 cups of zoodles. My favorite spiralizer is this one by Paderno. It has different blade sizes to spiralize almost anything! pumpkin alfredo with shirataki noodles Shirataki noodles are made from the konjac yam. The noodles mostly contain water and glucomannan, a water soluble fiber. The benefit of using shirataki noodles is that they are ZERO carb, unlike zoodle that do have carbohydrates. Once prepared correctly, shirataki noodles don’t have much flavor so they will take up the flavor of the dish they are made with. It’s important to cook them correctly according to the package directions. When you first open the package, it will stink! But once you rinse the keto noodles and cook them in boiling water, all of that unpleasant smell disappears. My favorite brand of shirataki noodles are made by Miracle Noodle. Miracle Noodle has different pasta and noodle shapes to work with your favorite low carb dishes. For the keto pumpkin alfredo, I recommend using the fettuccini style noodle. Two bags of Miracle Noodle fettuccini will be needed to make this low carb dish. As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases

Pumpkin is Keto

a can of pumpkin Although pumpkin does have a higher carb count compared to other vegetable, you can still enjoy some pumpkin in small amounts on the keto diet. Pumpkin contains fiber and is high in antioxidants, so don’t discount it just because it has a higher amount of carbohydrate. Most keto recipes that use pumpkin are only using a small amount, so it won’t affect your overall daily carb level too much.

  1. I was craving something different from my usual standbys so I made this tonight for the first time. I added ground sausage and some sage and used the spiralized zucchini. It was very filling and delicious! I made the cheddar chaffles to go with it instead of the biscuits to save time and energy. We loved it. Thanks for another great recipe!
