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).
