Someone create me a way to get crunchy noodles please! I just got an 18-bag case from the Fed Ex man today and am searching for new ideas. And I bought the fettuchini ones again, they ROCK!!

Would patting them dry and baking work? I'd hate to waste a bag or 2 trying to find a way!

My favorite way to eat the shirataki noodles/rice:



Spicy Coconut Shrimp Shirataki

Serves 4

1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup sliced onion (or less)
1 tablespoon minced garlic (optional)
2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger
1.5 tablespoons coriander
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/8 teaspoon turmeric
1 cup drained canned tomato, chopped
2 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut milk
1/2 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 lbs large shrimp, peeled and cleaned
3/4 cup fresh cilantro
Juice of 1/2 lime

Shirataki noodles/rice

Heat oil in lg skillet on med-hi heat. Add onions and stir cook for a couple of minutes, then add garlic and ginger,cook 2 minutes.
Add the spices and tomatoes and cook for a couple of minutes, then add coconut milk, water and salt.
Simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes.
Add shrimp, simmer, stirring for 5 minutes. The shrimp should all be pink and cooked. Last, stir in cilantro and lime juice.

Either serve over shirataki noodles, or add the noodles/rice to the pan, let it heat through for a minute and serve.

I generally cook this for the family, serve their's over basmati rice and serve mine with shirataki. Once dish, 3 different diets covered

My other favorite way of doing them is this.
When I make the marinade for chicken satay, I usually double or triple the amount and freeze some, so I have a quicker way the second time around. I also freeze some flat in a ziplock baggy and then I do the following:

Rinse the noodles, snip them to make them smaller (angelhair pasta,) pat dry and spread out between 2 double layers of kitchen towels. Microwave on high for 1.5 minutes.

Then I fry them for 5 minutes in 2 tsp of butter in a pan, tossing them around as I go. Grate in about a cup of zucchini and once that softens, break off a little of the frozen marinade and melt it into the stir fry. About a tbsp or so.
Absolutely delish! And the texture is a lot like rice noodles, which makes the texture much less disturbing.

Lovin' all the recipes! One of my faves isn't much of a "recipe" but it's a great low-cal way to fill me up on JUDDD down days. I mix spiral-sliced zucchini (8 cups raw, then cook and squeeze out water) with 3 bags of rinsed and pan-dried shirataki angel hair (both "noodles" hold the sauce better when they're drier).



Then I add 2 cups of a good marinara sauce that runs 50 cals per half cup. Zucchini cals 160, shiratake 0, sauce 200 for a total of 360 calories for a huge bowlful that lasts me for a couple of days (and I eat big portions), providing I can keep my husband from eating it.

Mmmm those look so good!

I tried the shrimp shape shiratake once and it's just gross. The thicker the shapes are the more un appetizing it is. Just a heads up. Stick with the angel hair, linguini, and rice and orzo shapes.

Miracle Noodle Rice recipes

Hey everyone, First day on this site so forgive if I make mistakes here. Just a question to see if anyone has used the Miracle Noodle Rice in a recipe that they would share. Thanks

The only thing I have used the rice for is in that "oatmeal" I pictured above. In the yellow bowl.

I want to try spanish rice with chicken sometime. I imagine, rinse and drain "rice", put in a hot dry pan to dry out a bit, add some butter, garlic, onion and a bit of salsa and let cook together. Then add diced chicken to cook. Put melted cheese over top. It's how my mom used to make it when I was young.

My latest love

6 meatballs
a bag of shirataki spinach fettuchini, (rinsed well)
1/4 c Philly Sante Fe cooking cream

Warm the meatballs in the microwave, mostly to get a lot of the grease out. Toss in a pot with the shirataki and cream cheese, heat thoroughly.

Watch out for the carbs in the meatballs, the Farmfresh I get at Wal-Mart have 3 carbs (2 fiber, 1 sugar) per 3 meatballs. The Wal-Mart brand has 8!!

My co-worker, who recently started low-carb, found the RO*TEL website that has LOTS of recipes and the majority can be low-carbed. Like using the rice shirataki in the jumbalaya. MMMM

Got any new recipes to share though?

I've still got quite a few shiritake noodles. I really haven't used them because they give me a bit of tummy issues, not severe, but eh, and I also retain a little water because they are all fiber.

Great thread!! I used the rice shape noodles to make stuffed peppers and had great results. I simply de-carbed my recipe and used the shirataki in place of the rice. Now I can no longer find the rice shape...

In Toronto, Korean grocery sells basic shirataki noodles at a very reasonable price.

MsWoods, looks fabulous!

Went to the Korean grocery last week and bought 10 bags of shirataki noodles. I am still working on bag 1 that I added to my crackslaw. Really turned out well and adds a ton of bulk to it.

I am in Canada and the low carb order place won't ship them for some reason. I have to go there to get them and it is quite a hike.

I got so lucky Cathy. I've been out for quite a while but haven't had extra money to order a case, and i found a drug store here that has them! $3.25 a bag, but still, they are local. I bought 4 bags. I need to just go ahead and order a case, but for now, I'm so happy I can find them locally now.
