"Toshikoshi Soba" or End of Year Noodles

Are you ready to welcome the new year and say goodbye to the old one? Then say hello to a healthy version of Toshikoshi Ramen. In Japan, New Year's Day is the most important holiday of the year, just like Christmas in the West. While New Year's Day brings parties and much hoopla, New Year's Eve is customarily spent quietly at home with friends and family -- a time to reflect on the old year. The traditional meal to have while waiting to greet the new year is toshikoshi soba. Start the new year eating right with our healthier version of ramen below, made with shirataki noodles to cut calories, fat, and carbs dramatically.  Yoi otoshi o!  --- よいお年を!Wishing you a happy new year!

Drain and rinse Skinny Noodles according to package instructions. If desired, try our Vinegar Tip: Toss noodles in bowl, add 1-2 teaspoons of vinegar, set aside 1-2 minutes (vinegar will neutralize the alkaline smell), then rinse and drain noodles well again. Add noodles and next 6 soup ingredients in a medium saucepan, mix well, and heat until bubbly. Reduce heat to keep warm. Pan fry topping ingredients in a lightly greased pan. Cook until shrimp is pink and done. Transfer Skinny Noodles and soup to 2 deep, medium-sized bowls. Add toppings and serve hot.
