In perusing gluten-free noodles, I have just tasted these noodles for the first time.

I am interested in how others enjoy these noodles, particularly as they seem popular in low carb eating programmes/programs.

I purchased the noodles in liquid, from a local Asian food store and wasn't sure what to expect.
Considering I have not eaten noodles for many years, I was thrilled to be able to enjoy noodles again.
I pan fried prawns/shrimp, added the washed noodles and some mango chutney sauce. Loved it all !!!!

Now I am interested in how others enjoy these noodles?

Yvonne,

These are the calorie free, no carb noodles? I LOVE them.

I find sauce makes a difference because the noodles absorbe the flavors of the sauce. My younger daughter likes it with spaghetti sauce for the obvious--spaghetti and meatballs.

I've added hot sauce and low-sodium soy sauce to spice it up with veggies and chicken on top. Along with some Mrs. Dash (no-salt seasoning) and other spices.

My personal fave? Mix about a cup of Greek yogurt, one mashed avocado, and either storebought or my homemade hummus with extra garlic. Mash it well or put it in a food processor to make it creamy. (I don't eat all the sauce at once lol. It lasts about 3 or 4 days for future meals.) Add spices to your liking, and put some on the noodles. Oh, it tastes divine! Top with some chicken, peppers, or other fresh/cooked veggies that you like.

And shrimp like you said. Yummy! Even just using a hummus/yogurt blend is a good sauce too. I'll have to try your idea of mango chutney. We just ran out of the shiritake noodles on Wednesday, so I have to head down to buy several more packs. DD#2 and I are converts to these noodles. I have a pic of these I took recently. Will try to upload a pic.

Found it! Now I'm craving them so I will have to head out several towns over to get my noodles.

One of my fave dinners with shiritake noodles and avocado/greek yogurt/hummus sauce.

We love these at our house for gluten free DH, who incidentally, is pretty pleased to have discovered that if he avoids wheat his asthma is about 98% better right at a time when loads of gluten free products are showing up in stores!

We tend to eat them like normal pasta with spaghetti sauce, particularly on need-an-instant-dinner type nights. But I have also tossed them into stir fries and soups.

Still have not seen the so-called zero calorie noodles here, but as they are made with yam flour, we will try them if they appear on our store shelves.

I live in the Northeast of the US and can purchase the noodles on the bottom at Wegman's, a grocery chain.

The noodles on the top can be ordered online via www.miraclenoodle.com . Or I think they can be purchased at a Whole Foods store in the US. Unfortunately, the nearest Whole Foods for me is in Philly near the university my daughter attends. That's almost a 2-hour drive. Wegman's is a 40-minute drive. None are close.

Here is the ingredient listing on the back.

ETA, my taste buds prefer the white packet noodles, but both are good. And another thing. The ones I bought are calorie-free, but filled with $$$ lol. These noodles aren't cheap like 1-lb wheat-based pasta you can purchase for 88 cents on a good sale day.

tgm - we get the soy shiritaki at our local grocery store. They are in the refrigerated area with the tofu and other soy stuff.

Our DD is a nutritionist and almost off-handedly one day suggested that DH go off wheat. He has gone from daily steroid inhalers plus broncho-dialaters to just the dialater from time to time in spring and fall. He developed asthma in his late 40's or early 50's. Don't know what changed, but losing wheat is a small price to pay for breathing well again without drugs.

Thanks, tourist! I went food shopping today and found the soy shiritake noodles. It's a good substitute for the ones I usually buy at only 20 calories/serving, really minimal. And less expensive too. It's nice to have this option.

These noodles are great. I've never tried to cook them, but some local Asian buffets have them as a side dish, with a soy based sauce. They do taste like whatever you put on them.

They are not in the pasta area in my local stores.
