Brussels Sprouts with Black Bean Garlic Sauce on Shirataki Noodles

Ingredients
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • dash of chili pepper flakes
  • 25 brussels sprouts
  • 1½ tablespoons of black bean garlic sauce*
  • ground black pepper
  • 1 package Shirataki Noodles
Instructions
  1. Drain and rinse the Shirataki Noodles really well. Place on paper towels to dry.
  2. Wash the brussels sprouts well. Trim the stems and discard any of the loose leaves. Quarter them lengthwise.
  3. Place the oil and chili flakes into a large skillet and place over medium-high heat. Add the brussels sprouts to the pan and cook for about 3-5 minutes or until the sprouts begin to brown a bit. They may absorb all the oil, if they do just add another ½ tablespoon of oil.
  4. Add the black bean garlic sauce and stir until all the brussels sprouts are well coated. Add a pinch of ground black pepper (the sauce is already salty so you probably won't need any salt). Cook for about 30 more seconds.
  5. Take off heat and serve immediately on a bed of Shirataki Noodles.
Notes
* I use Lee Kum Kee black bean and garlic sauce. You may use any one that you like. Can be found in most larger grocery stores. Note that the sauce is pretty salty, so no additional salt is needed.
