SHIRATAKI MIRACLE NOODLES

I came across the Shirataki Miracle Noodles some time ago and have become a real fan.  These noodles are calorie free, gluten free, and soy free…say what???????  It’s true. 

The noodles are made from the flour of the konnyaku imo root.  According to Miracle Noodle:

* made of naturally water soluble fiber with no fat, sugar, or starch.
* contain zero net carbohydrates and zero calories, no gluten -made of a healthy natural fiber called Glucomannan.
* wheat & gluten free and kosher.
* Easily absorbs the flavors of any soup, dish, or sauce.
* are instant and come in a variety of styles
* have shown beneficial effects backed by medical studies for Type II Diabetes, Constipation, Obesity, and Cholesterol!
I have not seen the noodles in the store.  I purchase them from the website and then store the noodles in the pantry.  The noodles are really easy to cook with and they really do take on the flavor of whatever sauce you put them with.  Keep in mind that the texture is different than a traditional pasta…I’d equate it more to the texture of mung bean noodles.
My favorite Miracle Noodle is the Angel Hair Pasta, but I am looking forward to trying their new Black Shirataki (It looks like a great buckwheat noodle substitute).
