Tofu Shirataki Noodles - Orlando
hi! i've been reading alot lately about a product made by House Foods called Tofu Shirataki Noodles. does anyone know where i can find these in the Orlando area (preferably Winter Park-ish)?
from what i've read, they're super low-calorie, high-fiber noodles made from tofu and yam flour. i think they'd be in a refrigerated/frozen section of a store. any help would be great!
Publix has carried them for awhile, I've bought them at various Publix locations around town. They are in the produce section by the wonton wrappers and tofu. Publix has 2 varieties of noodles. When looking for them, the bags are filled with liquid so the noodles don't go bad.
They are somewhat of an acquired taste if you don't use a flavorful sauce. Sauced up with a robust sauce, the I prefer the spaghetti to the wider noodles. The noodles are "chewier" in texture than normal pasta, so my texture conscious hubby isn't a fan.
In Broward, they sell them at Publix and also at Whole Foods. I"m certain if you don't find them at those stores, they can order them for you. In Whole Foods, it's in the dairy aisle, and at Publix they are with the produce, in a refrigerated section. They are not a dry pasta, and they are sold, (like tofu) in a liquid, in small bags, but they last a long time before opening. Rinse them first, and cook them only for a minute or two to heat. They have a slight fishy taste, and a bit of a rubbery consistency, but honestly, if you don't mind that, they're not bad, especially if you add veggies.
Here's a link with a picture of what they look like, and more info about them.
