Audrey has stepped up to our challenge in honor of this months "National Grab Your Nuts Day" which was on August 3rd! Check out this tasty dish that incorporates our delicious Ready-to-Eat meal in Thai Tom Yum, almond flour, pork rinds, and mussels! It's keto and it's crunchy! YUM!
"I bought some already cooked frozen mussels from the Asian supermarket. I thought these would go well with the Miracle Noodle Tom Yum Ready-to-Eat meal. I wanted a little bit of crispness, so I breaded the mussels with a combination of almond flour and crushed pork rinds. You could omit the almond flour and just use a cup of the crushed pork rinds or just add the mussels to the noodles and heat everything in the microwave. I topped my bowl with frizzled (crisp fried) Chinese celery leaves and a few slices of Thai chiles." --- Audrey AKA Creative Low Carb Fusion
