Low in calories, it’s a quick and healthy dish!

Konjac (konnyaku: 蒟蒻) is a natural food made from the root of a plant. It is low in calories, its very high fiber and vitamin B6 content gives it many health and slimming benefits. It is also a very effective natural appetite suppressant. 

It is its glucomannan content that satiates us. Its texture in the mouth is a bit crunchy and meaty and it has me hooked!
Konjac doesn't really have any taste, it's easy to season and incorporate into dishes.

Ingredients: for 4 people 

2 packets of konjac vermicelli (300g)
1 carrot
2 tbsp. tablespoon of sesame oil
2 tbsp. soy sauce
1 C. tablespoon of sugar
some sesame grain 

Preparation :

  1. Konjac vermicelli is often sold in a container filled with water and tied into knots.
    You can undo these knots first.
    Then pass them in boiling water for a few minutes to remove the specific smell of konjac (either in the saucepan or in a large bowl filled with boiling water).
    Cut the bottom of the container three times with scissors and drain the water (this way the vermicelli are shorter and easier to eat).


  1. In the meantime, wash and julienne the carrot. 
  1. In a heated pan, pour the oil and sauté the carrots. 
    Add the konjac vermicelli.
    Season with soy sauce and sugar.
    Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

     You can keep it for 3 or 4 days in the refrigerator.
