Have you ever had that craving for noodles? Tell me about it! It’s one of the most common cravings and one that can be hard to satisfy. Well, I’ve got a solution for you: These Easy Lightened Up Hibachi Noodles. 

These hibachi-inspired noodles are sautéed in lightened-up butter, garlic, soy sauce, and teriyaki sauce and can be served along with your favorite protein and veggies.

What ingredients do I need to make these Easy Lightened Up Hibachi Noodles?

  • Spaghetti, gluten-free spaghetti noodles, or whole grain spaghetti-cooked al dente. I like to use Barilla Plus spaghetti or whole grain spaghetti, if you have whole grain pasta as a zero point food.
  • Light butter- I like to use Land O’ Lakes made with canola oil, I can’t believe it’s not butter or smart balance.
  • Garlic-minced. Fresh is always best. I use about three large garlic cloves, minced.
  • Zero point brown or white sweetener – I like to use Lakanto Monkfruit Brown. You can find it online HERE. Save 15% with promo code: POUND15
  • Reduced sodium soy sauce.
  • Sugar free teriyaki sauce- I like to use G. Hughes sugar free teriyaki sauce. You can find it at your local Walmart store or HERE on Amazon.
  • Toasted sesame seeds– for garnish
  • Green scallions– for garnish 
  • Salt and pepper-to taste

What other ingredients can I use in these Easy Lightened Up Hibachi Noodles?

  • Chicken– cooked and cut into bite sized pieces. 
  • Shrimp– sautéed. 
  • Beef- cooked and cut into bite sized pieces. 
  • Tofu– sautéed.
  • Steamed veggies such as– broccoli, water chestnuts, cauliflower, sliced carrots, edamame, red bell peppers, zucchini, celery, bean sprouts, and/or green peas.

What kind of noodles can I use for these Easy Lightened Up Hibachi Noodles?

Hibachi noodles are traditionally made with yakisoba noodles. This is a long, flat noodle made of wheat flour. I like to use smart balance spaghetti noodles for these, since I keep them on hand. You could use any rice, whole grain, or gluten free noodles you love.

I like to use Barilla Plus spaghetti or whole grain spaghetti, if you have whole grain pasta as a zero point food. You can use gluten-free spaghetti, for a gluten-free option or substitute the spaghetti noodles for one of these:

  • Yakisoba noodles– Simply Asia Chinese Style Lo Mein Noodles. You can find these HERE on Amazon.
  • Natural Heaven Hearts of Palm Pasta Spaghetti Noodles-These are low carb noodles made with Hearts of Palm and have only 70 calories per serving. You can find it HERE on Amazon.
  • Ronzoni Smarttaste Spaghetti– this brand is lower in points and is packed with fiber. You can find it HERE on Amazon.
