California Roll Kelp Noodles

It’s official, I’m addicted to kelp noodles.

Since buying my first pack on Upaya Naturals, I’ve come up with a couple of tasty ways to enjoy these low calorie, thyroid supporting noodles.

I’ve made countless batches of 150 calorie (and 15 minute) ginger chicken kelp noodle soup,

tried toasting them in the oven for a salty + crunchy snack, and went bananas when I realized they make a perfect addition to a bowl of detox supporting soup.

As much as I would love to serve up a big bowl of kelp noodles for Thanksgiving dinner this Monday, I think my sister would probably die at the thought of no turkey. And honestly, deep down I know I would too, so I’ll be heading to the grocery store tonight to begin stocking up for the big day.

If you’re planning to do the same, here are a couple of recipes that may help you along the way. These were some of my first posts on the blog!

My first turkey and gluten-free gravy

Apple rice stuffing. This year I’m planning on creating a wild mushroom rice stuffing!

Monster mashed potatoes… because purple potatoes are higher in phytonutrients (and funner to eat!)

And last but certainly not least, the best darn sugar-reduced cranberry sauce I’ve ever had.

Monday couldn’t come soon enough!

  1. I’m sorry… am I the only one thinking you are confused about what a California Roll consists of? Avocado, crab and cucumber. Every time. Only those three things. I’ve had it in NY, I’ve had it in Seattle. It never changes. This is the second time I have seen California Rolls referenced… and it never has anything to do with what a California roll really is.

    • I bought mine online at upaya naturals. We don’t have a whole foods here, but I was told they do carry them!

  2. that looks like a very comforting recipe, something that would also cure the common cold.. :) I love kelp noodles, this reminds me that I need to get more.

  3. Wow! this is so ironic! I just bought kelp noodles at Whole Foods out of random because I noticed the calories were so low, and then you post this, so cool :) I really didnt know what to do with the noodles! Thanks for the post :)
