I know miracle noodles are really popular and I have been dying to try them. I never got the chance to until I found a noodle that was not miracle noodle, but they were similar to them at the local Asian market. They are called shirataki or yam noodles almost zero calories and fat free. The bags I bought were 3oz per serving 0 calories.. I bought a couple of bags since I am in love with all sorts of noodle dishes. With these noodles you get more bang for your buck and they don’t taste bad either. I would say they taste like those dried noodles in the packages with the sodium container; expect they have absolutely no flavor. Once I open the package I wasn’t prepared for the dead fish smell I got. The smell alone kind of made me not want to eat them, so I boiled them in some water and the smell was gone. I had leftover noodles so I put them in a glass container with the leftover fishy water. I love these noodles they are quick and simple. If you had a busy day and don’t feel like cooking, just through them in a pot of boiling water and add sauce some vegetables and you have dinner.
One cup of yam noodles, cabbage, tahini, red bell peppers, and garlic… Was yummy mmm…
that looks really yummy … how much does that Shirataki cost ya “?
The store I went to it was $3.00 🙂
thats pretty reasonable considering it will be a full meal! nice .. thanks
I use these noodles a lot. I thoroughly rinse them under cold water to get rid of the smell and then use them in my meals. They’re good for bulking up meals.
I boiled mine like regular pasta I may try the cold water thanks 🙂
I’ve tried these before, too. They were great. Like your blog. Good luck on your journey!
Thank you 🙂
Haha one whiff of any “dead fish” odor and I would have chucked those in the trash! Glad it disappeared though 🙂
Ha ha too cute that’s what I said when I seen them! 🙂
