Paleo Beef & Vegetable Noodles


Yes, the title of the recipe does say both ‘paleo’ and ‘noodles’ in the same sentence! However, the aforementioned ‘noodles’ in my recipe are of the kelp variety and are naturally gluten-free and get the paleo rubber-stamp of approval!

Kelp noodles are made from kelp (duh!), an edible seaweed, and are marketed as a gluten-free alternative to the wheat or rice noodles used in many Asian-inspired dishes and soups. Kelp noodles contain nothing more than kelp, sodium alginate (a seaweed-derived salt), and water, and provide a rich source of trace minerals including iodine, a mineral important in thyroid function.

Kelp noodles are easy to use, with no cooking required! They’re an awesome ‘ramen’ substitute in broth based soups, or in stir-fries, like my Paleo Beef & Vegetable Noodles recipe! So, if you like trying new foods, give my recipe a try, and please share your feedback in the comments box below!
