Some people may have heard of this zero calorie noodle called miracle noodles. I was skeptical to try it but was looking for an alternative for pho rice noodles. I went to Sprout’s and purchased 2 small bags of miracle noodles that are normally 2 servings per bag, for $2.79 each. These noodles are on the pricey side but the are easy to prepare. I have included the ingredients of the miracle noodles in this post because they are made from a Japanese root, and are suspended in water. I really enjoyed these noodles in my pho I could not tell the difference and I still felt full but not overstuffed .
The three ingredients of our shirataki noodles are Glucomannan, which is soluble fiber extracted from the root of a Japanese plant called a Konnyaku Imo, water and a calcium additive. This calcium additive is added to the noodles to keep their shape intact. This is a food grade calcium additive known as pickling lime or calcium hydroxide.
The noodles contain no soy, tofu, gluten/casein, legume or gluten.
To make the noodles all you have to do is drain and rinse them and prepare them the same way as pho noodles. The noodles cook quickly by just adding them to boiling water for a few minutes. If your trying to make any pasta dish they are a great substitute for regular pasta. If you have tried these noodles what are your thoughts and if you have any recipes please share.
If you have never tried pho before it can be game changing when it comes to soups during the winter this is hands down my go to . The bone broth is cooked for at least a day and then you add your favorite meats and veggies, and chow down. My mother-in-law usually makes it during winter time but if your in a rush you can also make it in a crockpot. I will have to make a recipe post soon
