Shirataki Noodles

Monday, September 12, 2011

OK, I said I would try the noodles and then share my experience.
I used them in a recipe by Hungry Girl, mixing them with mushroom soup and tuna....and I was surprised by the results! Not because I found that they tasted good, but because it was the texture that I wasn't very fond of!
You see, we've been eating whole wheat noodles and I had gotten used to the firmness of them...and my ONLY objection to the shirataki noodles was that they are very soft!
Other than that, I would use them again and probably will. However, my DH does NOT approve, so I won't put them on him. I will probably use them for a lunch for me to take to work!
Oh...I will share a HUGE secret with you to make the noodles taste good. Hungry Girl was very specific about rinsing the noodles very, very well before you heat them. The fishy smell was offputting, but I found that after I had followed her advice, the fishy smell and taste went away!

    emoticon I am assuming they are Thai. And sometimes that food is something you have to get used to. But, I love most of it! Will have to check it out. emoticon

    I know exactly what you mean. I tried these using Hungry Girl's fettuccine recipe. The texture is something that's hard to get used to but it didn't taste bad. I love that these are low calorie too.
