I’m obsessed with these grain free, gluten free hearts of palm noodles that I used in place of pasta in this stir fry. They’re so healthy – you’re pretty much eating a big bowl of veggies! So much better than zoodles because they’re not watery and have a similar texture to noodles. I whipped up this vegetarian dish for lunch a few times already! Made with a spicy, gingery soy peanut sauce and added an egg for protein. With the egg, peanut butter and spinach the whole dish has about 17 grams of protein and comes together in under 15 minutes.

I finally got my hands on some Palmini linguine affil link (noodles made out of hearts of palm), which I kept hearing about on social media. To be honest, I was hesitant to try them, but when I opened the package and tasted them, there weren’t scary at all. The Palmini basically tasted like hearts of palm, something I grew up eating. I gave the noodles a good rinse to neutralize the taste and made them into a stir fry. Next time I make them, I’m planning on making an Italian broccoli rabe and sausage version. If you’ve tried them let me know what you made!

How to Make a Healthy Spicy Peanut Noodle Stir Fry

This healthy stir fry serves one and is excellent for when you need a quick lunch at home. You can easily double or triple this recipe if you need to feed more people or want leftovers.

  • Cook the garlic and ginger for 30 seconds, add in the hearts of palm noodles, and then soy sauce and sriracha.
  • Add spinach and cook until it wilts.
  • Push everything to the side and put the peanut butter in the pan. Let it melt, and then stir it into the noodle mixture.
  • Crack the egg and scramble it.
  • To serve, top with more sriracha, sesame seeds, and scallions.


  • If you don’t have Palmini noodles, you can sub zucchini or veggie noodles for another low-carb alternative or cooked rice noodles.
  • For even more protein, use two eggs or add in some edamame, tofu or chicken.
  • Feel free to use extra vegetables, like broccoli or bell pepper.
  • To make this stir fry gluten-free, swap the soy sauce for tamari or coconut aminos.
  • Switch out the peanut butter for sun butter if you want a nut-free stir fry.
  • If you don’t like heat, skip the sriracha.

  1. Wow, this was so easy yet had TONS of flavor! Had never heard of hearts of palm noodles, but so happy I tried this. I especially love that this is a large portion size which makes it extra satisfying.

  2. Such a quick and easy dinner!

  3. I’ve never heard of Palmini! you have given me a beautiful gift to my menu rotation. Thank you for all your recipes!!!

  4. So good!  I made it for my family.  It is very filling. The one thing I worry about is sodium context with those who have high blood pressure concerns – next time I will make with no salt peanut butter. I made it with coconut aminos but still it was high. 

  5. Wow, was that filling!  I added a bit of veggie broth to make it a little less sticky!  It is a really delicious dish.  I’ve loved your recipes for years – another winner!  

  6. Hi Gina and Commenters,
    A very fun versatile recipe.
    I used 2 cups kale instead of spinach ( it needed a tbs of broth to help it cook down.
    Changed to PB2 and egg whites to lower the points.
    I also sautéed a 1/2 of onions before I did the garlic.
    So many ways to add extra veggies. I was surprised how quick it was to make.
    Next time will consider water chestnuts and or cooked carrots.
    It will also make a great side dish.
    Thanks for your hardwork.
    I love your weekly recipe guide. I use it for suggestions for new recipes on your web site.

  7. It was very good, but a little dry. What could be done or added for more saucy?

  8. This was great (even without the egg, which I didn’t have).  I cut the sriracha back to 1/2 tsp and it was plenty spicy for us.  The one thing I did not see in the recipe was what temperature to cook this dish on.  Please let me know.

  9. This was really good! I had never used palmini noodles before. I actually made half with palmini and half with rice noodles (not sure if my crew would like the palmini), and the consensus was the palmini were the best!

  10. LOVE this recipe!! First time we’ve tried HoP noodles and we are now believers!! However, am I missing something with the amounts of ingredients? When I try to print the recipe for 4 servings it gets pretty weird and I have to do lots of mental math… I’m not so in love with cooking that I want to add extra math into the mix… 😉

  11. FYI you can get Palmini at Walmart. It’s in a can and is in the Gluten Free section.

  12. Really good! I added a little tahini and sesame oil too.

  13. Fantastic!! Will make again for sure. First time trying the Palmini.

  14. This was so delicious! I decided to try it because I had a box of hearts of palm angel hair, and wanted a quick dinner. I didn’t expect much, but I was so happy with how it turned out. It has the best flavor and was super easy. I’ll definitely be making this again and again!

  15. Hi Gina @Skinnytaste! I was just wondering how the recipe has 26.5 grams of Carbs, I thought the noodles and most of the other items are lower carb. Maybe I missed an ingredient that’s higher, but wanted to confirm! Thanks!

    • the package is meant for 4 servings, but when looking at carbs look at net carbs. So subtract the fiber from the carbs to get that number.

      • I’m also confused about the nutritional info. Is this recipe meant to serve one person or more? Are the net carbs 15 for the entire recipe or per person? I’m on a low carb diet and trying to make sure this fits in!

      • the whole dish is for 1 person

  16. This recipe was amazing!! 

  17. We absolutely loved this as a side dish. So yummy. Thank you for introducing me to hearts of palm noodles. We love them! I read online to rinse well with water prior to using. Looking forward to more recipes with this product.

  18. So good and filling!

  19. Happened to see these noodles the other day, then like magic your recipe came. I did rinse and drain the noodles per package before putting them in the pan. Shared with my husband, and he thought they were noodles. They have got to be one of the best at mimicking a noodle, Need to get more of those! Recipe fun to do, I used powdered peanut butter, (doesn’t melt,if any one wonders) and cut sesame oil to one teaspoon, smidgen of sriracha. We really liked it.

  20. this was delicious! You didn’t say whether to drain the palm noodles so I dumped them in the pan. There was too much liquid so I drained it. Also, do you mean toasted sesame oil?

  21. I personally didn’t hate it but this was definitely not a hit with the family bc of the palm noodles

  22. very easy to make. Tasty, but a bit dry–not sure how this happened?

  23. The meal plans are awesome. We have two skinny taste cookbooks. The Skinny Taste cookbook and skinny taste meal prep. They are really, good cookbooks. We love the chicken Marsala on the lighter side, creamy carrot Farrotto, my house salad with love and I could taquitos with ground turkey, and I could go on on and on. Awesome 

  24. Trader Joe’s also has packages of Hearts of Palm Pasta, Linguine shaped. Its shelf stable in 9oz package with the other pastas. It has no other ingredients but Heart of Palm. If I remember correctly its like $2.50 or $2.99 a package. Its delicious!

  25. Yowza those noodles are expensive.  Will try them anyway.

  26. Why is this only one serving?

  27. This was surprisingly good!! And such a generous portion for the calories. Please, please, please post more Palmini recipes – particularly interested in the lasagna :).

  28. I’m trying to eat lower carb so purchased a pack of Palmini noodles from Amazon which sat in my kitchen for weeks. I came across this recipe as it’s a perfect low carb no meat lenten Friday dish and WOW! I will 10000% be making this again!

    Perhaps the best part about this recipe is not only how it quickly came together but also how flexible you can be with what you have on hand. I eye balled the sauce measurements and made a couple of substitutions based on what I had in the fridge: added some bell peppers and zucchini instead of the spinach & it was excellent.

  29. I made this recipe today for dinner and it was amazing!!!  I doubled the recipe to share with my husband and he really liked it too!!  Will definitely be on my dinner rotation.   

  30. It says the serving size is 1 stir fry..,how many cups is that? 

  31. A recipe I will definitely try.  I made a palming dish the other night with sautéed new onions, new broccoli, and shiitake mushrooms combined with angel hair palming.  It was delicious.  I will be posting the recipe on my blog New Classic Recipe.

  32. Can you use the canned Palmini-I happened to purchase it last week?

  33. You are posting so frequently these days!  I love it!  Thank you!

  34. Where did you find packages of palmini??

  35. Can you make the palm noodles with a spiralizer 

  36. What is the sauce your serving it with?

  37. I wonder if you could substitute PB powder (the kind without added sugar) for the peanut butter, and what amount for that.

  38. This sounds so good! Some of the suggested substitutions would work well for me, like replacing the soy sauce with coconut aminos and replacing the egg with chicken (allergies). I’d probably lower the fat by using PB2 in place of regular peanut butter and reducing the amount of sesame oil by a third.

  39. Where are all the carbs in this recipe coming from? Based on the ingredient list, this seems like it should be much lower than over 26 carbs. I was hoping this would be something I could enjoy while on Keto but obviously not with 26.5 carbs per serving.

    • You may want to look at the “net carbs” which refers to carbs that are absorbed by the body. To calculate the net carbs in whole foods, subtract the fiber from the total number of carbs.

  40. Would love more recipes using this noodle. I’ve used it with a pesto, chicken, and broccoli combo. I’m currently on an AIP diet which is grain free and always looking for good pasta substitutes.

  41. Peanuts are a legume and not allowed on whole 30. Otherwise, looks wondeful!

  42. I have some packaged palm noodles in my pantry. This looks so good! I’ll be making it tonight.
