I'm always on the lookout for tasty low carb versions of pasta, noodles and spaghetti – check out my list of low carb spaghetti alternatives – it includes noodles made from zucchini, eggplant, hearts of palm, and more! Low Carb Spaghetti Alteratives

So when I saw some noodles made from KELP on Amazon (I bought the Gold Mine brand) I just had to try them!

They are gluten free, don't require any cooking, and contain only 1g net carb in a 4 oz serving (four servings in a pack).

These kelp noodles are definitely an odd texture – crunchy but not slimy at all. The taste is very mild – maybe a vague hint of seaweed to them? But nothing unpleasant.

I decided to make a very simple sesame sauce to go with the kelp noodles – the whole dish comes together VERY quickly!

How to Make Low Carb Sesame Noodles

Rinse the kelp noodles and set aside. In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce (or tamari), rice wine vinegar, garlic paste and ginger paste.

Add some sesame oil to a large skillet and place over a low-medium heat, then add the noodles and sauce.  Cook for 4-5 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed. Add some chopped green onions for the last minute.
