Three power recipes with versatile glass noodles
Carb up with chef Nate Appleman's noodle recipes
GLASS NOODLES, which are made from mung beans and appear translucent, are packed with runnerfriendly carbs and iron. ‘I use glass noodles for Asian food, but they're versatile,’ says chef Nate Appleman. ‘You can substitute them for any pasta.’ Slightly chewier than pasta, glass noodles are also gluten-free.
Not only are these noodles lower in carbs and calories than traditional pasta, they also have vitamin B6. Thanks to their starch content, glass noodles are a good source of complex carbohydrates.
