    Tom Kha Gai Enoodle Bowl (Keto, Whole30)


    Yes, I coined a new word, Enoodle. Ha! It’s actually Enoki mushrooms or straw mushrooms, I used it in place of regular noodles to make this Tom Kha Gai Keto and Whole30 friendly! It’s a great way to reduce carbs in your diet. Yet, still enjoy that long QQ texture that we love with noodles. Using mushrooms also adds a depth of earthiness to the spicy, creamy, savoury, and sour soup. Talk about a party for the tastebuds!

    If you are not on a specific diet or if you are a carb lover, feel free to swab out the enoki mushrooms with your favourite carb. My girls love this soup sans chilli with rice instead of Enoodles. Kinda like the ever trending Pao Fan (泡饭) isn’t it? Please share with me your favourite way to enjoy this flavour-bomb.
