Title: For Keto Freaks - Miracle Noodles/Shirataki
Post by: pianoman9701 on October 08, 2019, 06:35:38 AM
These are strict keto noodles. Shirataki or Miracle noodles are made from water and seaweed; that's it. They're kind of opaque and do resemble cellophane, or glass noodles, but they're thicker. They're in the refrigerated noodles section in a bag with salt water, 1 lb packages for $2-3 each. When you open the bag, they smell a little like fish. Rinse them and they don't smell at all. When you're ready for them, boil for 2-3 minutes. They seem to take on the character of the foods with which you serve them - mushrooms, chicken, seafood, etc. They have zero net carbs (2 carbs per serving which are both from fiber) and are quite filling. A noodles and butter snack with some parm really fills you up in the middle of the day.

Buy them at an Asian food store or you'll pay 3 times as much at a regular grocer, if they even have them. Two varieties are either white or seaweed greenish, grayish. They taste the same. Have fun enjoying noodles again!

The spaghetti ones are better than the fettuccine in my opinion not as thick and mix better. Found them at Safeway.

I believe the ones marketed as the Miracle Noodles are comparatively expensive from the ones at an Asian market. You might check it out.

No, but you can use them to make Yak Firestix.

I thought shiratake were made from some kind of yam? We use them a fair amount.

You're absolutely correct! The green one has a seaweed derivative in addition to the yam flour. Thanks for the correction!  :tup:

Always have a few bags in the fridge. Definitely not as satisfying as a "real" noodle, but they make a great filler.

We've been using the heart of palm noodles and they are pretty good. They come in a can. My wife uses them in spaghetti. I am going to try the lasagna size ones in my lasagna for elk camp since a couple of us are doing Keto now.

That Palmini looks interesting and a bit pricey. Keto aint cheap! It says 4 carbs per serving but doesn't say how big a serving is. Can you tell me how many servings are in a can?

3 servings in the can. And no some of the Keto isn't cheap, but it works! I'm down 14 pounds in a month.

We tried the Shirataki Noodles last night, I liked them, my wife not so much, biting into them gave me the same sensation of biting your cheek due to the texture, but the flavor was neutral and it was nice to eat some noodles that weren't made from Zucchini.

We're definitely missing some flavor in these foods. I sell exotic foods to great chefs and now won't eat much of what they cook because I don't want to be a big fat tub for the rest of my painful life. My wife is making every effort to find new recipes and keep things interesting. We've both lost a ton - her/33 lbs and me 43 lbs. It's been a big change, no doubt.
