Konjac Ramen Bowls with Turkey Kale Meatballs

Have you ever tried Konjac Noodles?  They are naturally gluten-free, high in fiber and almost zero calories.  They are made from the konjac plant.  They have a great chew to them and are a great replacement for pasta.  Feel free to make this recipe with regular cooked ramen noodles if you want.  This is a one-bow-meal that is perfect for the weeknight.  I do a lot of meal prepping on Sundays and make the Turkey Kale Meatballs almost every week, so it was natural for me to use them here.  If you have not made them or want to add some other protein in this bowl, go for it.  I love this with cooked chicken, cooked or raw tofu, cooked shrimps or thinly sliced rare steak.

Some people complain that they get a bloated feeling from konjac noodles because of the high fiber content, just make sure you are drinking plenty of water, which you should be doing anyway ;).
