How to make low carb egg noodles

For this pasta recipe for egg noodles you’ll need: cream cheese, eggs, vital wheat gluten (for texture, but you may omit if you have issues with what gluten)

I love noodles ! And my favorite is egg noodles. Well, to be perfectly honest I love pasta of any kind but egg noodles are my favorite and always have been. Keto noodles like these are amazing. Yes, zucchini noodles are awesome as are shirataki noodles. But there is something about keto noodles that have the taste and texture of pasta. No almond flour needed for this recipe.

So today I was sitting here getting some work done and occasionally looking out the window. The roses on the trellis are pretty actively in bloom and the trees are loaded with bright green leaves. The colors are bright against a glowery gray sky, though and it looks chilly. It’s not in the least – I think the high today is going to be 81F – BUT it LOOKS that way.

I could not get chicken noodle soup off of my mind. I didn’t want zoodles. I didn’t want that weird textured low carb pasta. I wanted tender, slurpy egg noodles drifting in a rich broth surrounded by pieces of chicken. The only way to deal with that kind of craving is to find a way to satisfy it – so I hit up some of my favorite blogs for noodle recipes.

I adapted this from I Breathe I’m Hungry – I can’t even say adapted since I only really added an ingredient.

So let’s talk about vital wheat gluten. Yes, it is wheat, and yes in high amounts it has carbs – although not as many as flour. In this tiny amount it adds no carbs to the recipe yet helps the noodles to not only hold together but also to have that tender chewy texture we all love. This should NOT be served to anyone with a gluten intolerance or allergy but it’s just fine for low carb lifestyles.

These low carb noodles take less than 10 minutes total. The don’t taste “eggy”. I think that they are just about perfect, to be honest. The one issue I had is that they do tend to soak up liquid if they sit in a broth for too long.

I put a silpat sheet down on a large cookie sheet and then kind of poured the batter on it. I then carefully spread the batter out into a rectangle, making sure that it was super thin. Try to keep them as thin as you can.

Oh – and remember to check my low carb chicken noodle soup recipe.

    1. Hi Leah,
      Great question. You can try 1 teaspoon of xanthum gum for every cup wheat gluten. fyi- Xanthan has just over 2 grams of carbs per teaspoon. Happy cooking and creating !

  1. I made but did change the gluten to xanthan gum, where I can’t do gluten. Don’t think it made a difference they were amazing..kind of like egg noodles but not s strong eggy taste .. I made a chicken noodle soup and i was in heaven. Thank you… gave me my noodle back that I was missing.

  2. You are my hero , my husband is a recently diagnosed diabetic ( type 2) he is improving fast . But the lasagna I made with my first batch was amazing. Easy , fast and fool-proof . I added salt and nutmeg ( we Germans add it to Sp?tzle so I knew the flour works) . I need a better baking sheet it is better if totally flat to have an even noodle. The sauce of the lasagna was enough to do the trick . I cheated with a teaspoon of flour for the roux. Which I will replace with whey protein isolate the next time. Thank you so much.
    I struggled to get the Vital wheat gluten at first ( I a in South Africa) but a chemical company here supplies it as a food additive .
    I see sooo many possibilities.
    Keep up the amazing work . And ignore the people who can not fathom
    The no carb issue . As someone said you are a saint and I only read a few of the comments

    Honestly, there’s more comments that I could read, but do you know if these might dehydrated well for backpacking? Meaning could they last dehydrated without refrigeration for several weeks?
