Miracle noodle? That is one way to over pay! Just buy regular Shiritaki Noodles. A budget friendly option. I am going to buy some at the local health food store today!!!

To store them, I think I would just put them in the fridge.

You can find similar noodles at asian supermarkets. I just picked up a pack to try with some shrimp & lemon juice :) if you only use 1/2 a package how do you suggest storing the rest?

I have never heard of these and am completely intrigued! Thank you, JAZZID, for all the links and helpful information about how to use these noodles. I am always looking for new things to try.

I tried the noodles with the Thai Peanut sauce and it was great.

When you first open the noodles they have a slight fishy smell... the instructions say to drain them and rinse under cold water for about 3 - 4 minutes. Then boil for 1 minute and dry them.

I put the noodles in a colander and rinsed them, etc... I used San-J Thai Peanut sauce, chunky natural peanut butter with a little coconut oil and stir-fried, green onions, shiitake mushrooms, broccoli crowns & red & green sliced bell peppers.

I just ordered more noodles from the Miracle Noodles site and this is a response I received from them:

" You will be getting your noodles very soon and I wanted to give you basic instructions on how
to prepare the noodles.

1. Open the bag into a strainer or colander.

2. Rinse actively 3-5 minutes and boil lightly for 1 minute.

3. Hand dry the noodles with a paper towel or regular bath towel until dry.

4. Add to finished sauce or dish and that is it!!

** NOTE: Any retained moisture is referred to in Japanese as aku or bitterness, so drying the noodles is essential. There is another way to dry the noodles that also removes the translucency of the noodles that is by dry-roasting them. More information on dry roasting can be found at

www.miraclenoodle.com/dry-roast-shir
at
aki.html


The most common question we have received after the above instructions is why not cook with the noodles instead of adding them at the end of the cooking process. The reason is that the noodles change texture and can become chewy if they are heated up too much.
So, remember for delectable, delicious noodles, add them to your dish right before eating!!

Enjoy emoticon

I actually bought them online because I couldn't find them at the store. I think that Whole Foods has them, but I haven't been able to get to that store. In the meantime, I will try these and see how they are, I already have some recipes to try and I will post how it turns out.

Have you tried them again, maybe in a warm dish like noodles with a warm peanut sauce, or pasta sauce and veggies?

Yes, this is known as konyaku in Japan. They are made from a root vegetable that has practically negligible calories-not much flavor, sort of takes on the flavor of the dish they are in. (I asked my Japanese friends why they withheld this info from me when they knew I was working so hard to lose weight). Our cook made me konyaku salad, and some stir fried konyaku with veggies. Both were yummy. When I tried, it didn't turn out so good. But they sell them in the grocery in water packed plastic bags in the produce section.
