Yup; I love spaghetti squash. Summer's coming!!!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Spaghetti squash makes great "faux" noodles too.

The Shirataki I use is a combo of organic non-GMO soy and yam.I have a pack of totally Yam based ones in the fridge now - but the brown color is throwing me off so I havent tried them. I have not tried the Miracle Noodle Brand.

Something I enjoy more than Shirataki for sure:

I use a 2 oz (1c cooked) portion of whole grain pasta (wheat, rice, or quinoi) and supplement it with veggie ribbons made of carrots, cukes, squash, zucchini etc. or even just add spaghetti squash. You can run the veggies through a pasta maker or use a veggie peeler. It plumps up the plate and adds lots of yummy veggies. I think it is ok to eat healthier whole grain pastas (gluten or gluten free) in moderation

Well, shirataki noodles, and the "miracle noodles" are different things. Shirataki noodles are made from devil's tongue yam; Miracle noodles, I was told, are konyaku-which is a root crop with very low calories and alot of fiber. Konyaku is sold here in bags of water in the produce section and do smell quite bad when the bag is opened. But you are supposed to drain them well. But then I also saw that someone is selling shirataki noodles made from tofu and konyaku-so maybe that makes it a hybrid. I asked once if Japanese tofu was ok since they are made from non-GMO seeds; but it was never answered. Inquiring minds want to know.

I tried them and didn't think much of them. I didn't know there were ones made with soy. I thought they were made of a kind of root or yam-type thing. Anyway, I had bought them at an Asian grocery store a while back looking for an alternative to grain-based noodles. I was disappointed at their flavor and texture. I can live without noodles and pastas.

Shelly,
I like them, but I recommend rinsing them really well before using. They do not need to be cooked per say but just warmed up.I like them in stir fry dishes, but not so much in Italian dishes. They don't absorb the sauce like reg. pasta.

I have some Miracle Noodles. The Shirataki noodles I saw at the health food store were made from soy, but the Miracle Noodles I got were made of nonsoluble fibre (I won't eat soy with someone else's body).
Anyhow, the Miracle Noodles taste like S__T.

They seem to be a love/hate thing. You either love them or you hate them. Personally, I HATE them. They had pretty much the worst texture ever, besides the smell and taste not being great. Blech. But many people love them, so I believe they are worth the try. You might get lucky!

Hi everyone!! Has anyone had these shirataki noodles? I keep hearing about this 'miracle noodle' and was thinking about trying them. I'm italian and LOVE my pasta but sometimes I want to try something other than whole wheat noodles. If you've had them...how are they? Are they worth trying? How do you cook them??

Thanks Shelly :)

Never a failure...Always a lesson...
