just discovered shirataki noodles! only 20 calories per serving! wowsa. due to it's 'unique' texture, i was wondering what your favorite ways were to prepare it? also, this may be salvation for my noodle-loving diabetic dad, so please help me make this yummy!
I add them to miso soup, and that's about the only way I like them. The texture is a little too funny for me to eat them plain as "pasta" but I've heard of others enjoying them that way.
My miso soup typically includes green onion, mushrooms, tofu, handful of spinach and/or seaweed, some type of veggie broth (ginger broth from TJ's is nice for this). I always rinse, parboil, and re-rinse the noodles (in cold water), then add to the soup for 2-3 minutes at the end, after adding the miso.
I grill eggplant and other veggies coated in garlic salt, then chop and "stirfry" w/ shiratakis, balsamic vinegar (white), Bragg's amino acids, mustard, and lemon juice. Then either stir in egg whites or rotiserrie chicken, or have the protein on the side.
Have you had found kelp noodles yet? 18 calories per bag, different texture, but good hot or cold, a little crunchier, but soften in liquid and/or when heated. http://www.kelpnoodles.com/products_s... And I find these at Whole Foods.
