Low-Carb Sesame Noodles | Get to Know the Daikon Radish

Low-Carb Sesame Daikon Noodles

yield: 4 SERVINGS

prep time: 10 MINUTES

cook time: 5 MINUTES

total time: 15 MINUTES

Ingredients

  • 1 large daikon radish (about 1.5 pounds)
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil (or your preferred cooking oil)
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce (may substitute with tamari or coconut aminos)
  • 1/4 cup high quality sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon erythritol, confectioners
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce (found in the Asian aisle), optional for flavor and spice
  • toasted sesame seeds, optional for garnish
  • chopped green onions, optional for garnish

Directions

1

Wash and peel the daikon radish. Trim ends, cut in half, and spiralize. (I use the thin noodle setting.) Trim the noodles to your desired length.

2

Warm avocado oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add daikon noodles and cook for 3-5 minutes, tossing gently to allow for even cooking. The noodles will soften and shrink a bit while remaining al dente. Place noodles in a colander to drain and cool a bit.

3

In a small dish, whisk together sesame oil, soy sauce, apple cider vinegar, erythritol, and chili garlic sauce. Set aside.

4

Using a few paper towels, pat the drained noodles to help remove any remaining moisture. Place the noodles in a medium bowl and toss them in the sesame marinade. Allow the noodles to marinate for at least 10 minutes, tossing well halfway. Once marinated, drain any excess marinade from the bowl that wasn't absorbed by the noodles.

5

If desired, garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds. Serve with additional chili garlic sauce. Enjoy!

This classic Asian recipe uses spiralized oriental radish for the noodles!

Most likely, you’re familiar with zoodles made from zucchini, but have you ever heard of doodles? Doodles are noodles made from a very long, white radish known as a daikon radish or oriental radish. The mild flavor of a daikon radish makes it a great alternative to zucchini for many low-carb noodle dishes. Furthermore, known to expel less moisture when cooked, the daikon radish does a great job of maintaining an al dente texture.

These sesame noodles are a great make-ahead meal!

Because a spiralized daikon radish is less watery than the zucchini alternative, it’s a fabulous option for preparing in advance. Additionally, leftovers keep extremely well. In fact, I enjoy this keto noodle recipe best the next day.

Hip Tips:
  • Cut the noodles into a manageable length before cooking. I prefer my noodles to be 10-12 inches long.
  • Peel your daikon radish first to remove the less attractive outer layer which tends to be a bit spotty and brown.
  • For best results, pat dry your cooked and drained noodles.
  • The longer you marinate your noodles, the more flavor they’ll retain.
  • Turn up the heat factor with red pepper flakes in addition to the chili garlic sauce.

    Hey Hip2keto family! I’m (very) new to the keto lifestyle and I’ve never had a Daikon radish before. Do they only work in Asian dishes or would they work in Italian recipes as well?

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)
