  • 6 serving Tofu Shirataki Noodles
  • 2 oz Fish Sauce
  • 0 1/4 cup Fresh Lime Juice
  • 2 tbsp Sucralose Based Sweetener (Sugar Substitute)
  • 0 1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 3 tbsp Canola Vegetable Oil
  • 14 oz Firm Silken Tofu
  • 3 large Egg (Whole)
  • 8 medium (4-1/8" long) Scallions or Spring Onions
  • 1 tsp Garlic
  • 2 cup Mung Beans (Mature Seeds, Sprouted)
  • 0 1/2 cup Cilantro (Coriander)
  • 0 1/2 cup Dry Roasted Unsalted Peanuts
  • 1 fruit (2" dia) Lime


  1. Drain and rinse noodles well.  Parboil in water to cover for 2-3 minutes, drain, and set aside.  

  2. Combine fish sauce, lime juice, sugar substitute, and red pepper flakes in a small bowl; set aside.  

  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over high heat.  Add tofu and sauté until just browned on all sides, about 6 minutes.  Transfer to a plate. 

  4. Add eggs to skillet; cook, stirring, until just scrambled, about 1 minute.  Transfer to plate with tofu.  Wipe out skillet and add remaining tablespoon oil; return to high heat.  Add diced scallions and minced garlic; sauté until garlic just begins to brown, about 1 minute.  Remove and set aside.  

  5. Pour the fish sauce mixture into the skillet and boil, about 5 minutes, until reduced to half.  Add reserved pasta, eggs, tofu, and bean sprouts; cook to heat through, about 1 minute.  Transfer to plates; sprinkle with cilantro and peanuts.  Serve right away with lime wedges.
