These low-carb egg noodles are a wonderful keto-friendly option when you’re hit with pasta cravings. Not only do these homemade egg noodles mimic the texture of classic noodles, but they contain zero carbs per serving!
The key to these low-carb egg noodles mimicking the texture of traditional egg noodles is the vital wheat gluten. This ingredient normally contains carbohydrates, but in this recipe, the amount used is so minimal that it doesn’t add any carbs to the overall carb count of the noodles.
If you want to omit the vital wheat gluten, you can do that, however, the texture of these low-carb egg noodles will end up being different than traditional noodles. It’s important to talk about texture with low-carb noodles because, typically, low-carb diets call for ingredients like “zoodles” when making pasta, soups, or any other kind of recipe requiring noodles.
These noodles, however, are not made from vegetables. They’re made from eggs and, surprisingly, don’t taste eggy. They’re perfect to stir into a chicken noodle soup or coat with an alfredo sauce for a creamy pasta dish.
