This spicy Thai noodle soup is packed with crunchy fresh veg and oodles of flavour, yet it weighs in at only about 150 calories!
How? The secret is the new noodle box range from SlimFast, which is designed to offer a low calorie, yet delicious and filling snack. There are three flavours currently available: Chicken Tikka Masala (81 calories), Spaghetti Bolognaise (76 calories) and the vegetarian option, Spicy Thai Noodles (70 calories), which I’ve used in today’s recipe.
SlimTaki® Noodles are made from konjac flour. Konjac is an Asian vegetable, the root of which is turned into a flour that is starch-like, yet contains virtually no calories and zero fat and sugar.
