Shirataki noodles

My first experience with them and this is the results.


This entire plate was about 346 calories. Now mind you, I actually thought I could eat it all. But I was only able to eat half as there was so much of it.

I have heard of these noodles for awhile, and I finally went to Ranch 99, an Asian market and picked them up. I followed some of the hints peeps have said to do, such as wash several times very well, then dry them very well. I then cooked them on a hot (Pam sprayed) pan for about 5-10 minutes to dry them even more. I then removed them and added all my diced veggies. Once they were soft, I added the noodles back in and added a tablespoon of lite Soy sauce. I was very very pleased with the results. I can image all the wonderful other ideas to use these noodles for. Nice !

Shirataki noodles DO take extra work to rinse and get them ready... BUT they are fabulous to satisfy that pasta craving with practically none of the carbs!! Looks so yummy!!!
