Suggestions please

for sauce for the shirataki noodles. Ever since I discovered the cabbage, Laughing Cow, chicken thing (thanks be to the creator of that lucious dish) I've been using it with the noodles as well...tonight with tilapia.

But, I've been thinking there must be other sauces out there fore them and am looking for suggestions. Low carb ones preferred, but I'm opem for anything, particularly for DD's.

Thanks in advance for the good things I know are out there....

I just use 1/2 cup Classico Basil Spaghetti sauce for 50 calories. Don't know the carb count since I just count calories.

(not necessarily DD)

--Any Asian sauce like peanut or teriyaki (if you have or can make LC versions)
--"Cold Sesame Noodles"
--mix with seaweed salad
--sesame oil, ginger, garlic, soy sauce, etc

--any kind of Indian curry
(I get shelf-stable curries that come in pouches [Swad or MTR brands];
palak paneer and baingan bharta for example are pretty low carb,
and flavorful enough that they can be "stretched" with shirataki noodles
[although I am sure that is not very Indian! ].
I also like Patak curry pastes & sauces, esp. korma.)

--Red or Green Thai curry + coconut milk

--Alfredo sauce
--pesto

I love chicken broth with a dash of hotwing sauce. It is hot, spicy, and savory.

I have used my fav salsa mixed with laughing cow cheese, almost tastes like queso.

One of my challenge friends introduced me to ragu double cheese sauce. Its 100 calories per 1/4 cup which is pretty pricy calorie wise but it makes the noodles tastes like mac and cheese so worth it in my book!

Dynasty makes some great powdered sauces for chinese noodles--and one serving is only about 20-30 calories--I like the szechwan flavoring--I add soy sauce, water, and maybe a little Walden Farms asian dressing.

Check out the powdered sauces/gravies. They may not have the best ingredients, but you can find some great flavors and have control over the calories.

1/4 cup of prepared turkey, beef or chicken gravy runs you about 20 calories. I also will often use a couple of Tablespoons of Campbells chicken/mushroom soup.

Philadelphia cooking creme is only 25 calories/TBS. I like the pesto one a lot! The italian flavors are also yummy

I make mexican noodles by mixing ff cream cheese, some pepper sauce and some taco seasoning.

I sure wish I liked shirataki noodles. I've tried every possible way to prepare them. Rinsed till the cows came home, etc, but the texture is still like rubber bands to me. :P

Did you dry them out in a skillet? For me that is the key. I don't notice a rubber band texture but that doesn't mean it isn't there. Textures affect different people in different ways.

That's why I think they go well mixed in with seaweed salad. It's pretty chewy, too!

I get my noodles at an Asian market now, and they have different brands/shapes; but when I got them at a health food store, the green spinach fettuccine (Wildwood Pasta Slim) had a less rubber-bandy texture.

Spin, even the skinniest ones? I feel the way you do about the fettuccini ones, but not the finest ones. I just don't want you missing out if you haven't tried those.

Thanks again for the all the suggestions. With all the strange things I've eaten in the U.S., Japan, Alaska and Korea the noodles don't taste like rubber bands at all. However, if rubber bands were even partly nutritious and were digestible in the body, I'd fill up on them just to take the "empty" out of the stomach....

Oh, I've rinsed, dried, fried, boiled, rinsed/boiled/fried, everything. I've only tried the angel hair version. I've seen the rice, but, yeah. Me and the noodles...not gonna happen. However, I do love spaghetti squash and I do like to make lasagna from zucchini "noodles."

I will be jumping in with the spaghetti squash in another week since I have some getting pretty big in my garden and I ordered a Spirooli to make zucchini noodles. Since the Shirataki noodles seem to clog up my digestive system (although I don't mind eating them) I am looking forward to veggie "pasta".

or pan fry with 1 tsp sesame oil, then sprinkle with gomachi (sesame salt) and serve with stir fried zucchini, green onion, mushrooms, chopped ginger and spice those as you like. Use whichever protein leftovers you have (we almost always have some kind of shredded meat leftover from a crockpot meal) or throw a few shrimp in.

SpinDizzie - Well, lookie here. Rubber bands is listed as the second ingredient. That explains it.

For us rubber band connoisseurs (this is not for you obviously, SpinDizzie. Hide your eyes. ) This is my FAVORITE shirataki noodle dish. Even MORE rubbery with the clams:

Noodles in Clam Sauce

Saute in sprayed skillet:

3 or more garlic cloves
4 or more mushrooms

Add and simmer:

1 bag noodles (drained; nuked 1 min; dried)
2 or more cups chopped parsley
1 can chopped clams with juice

Sprinkle on 1 T parmesan cheese. Season with s/p to taste.

Makes 1 HUGE serving - 258 calories

P.S. Love all the ideas on this thread. Will use them for sure. Thanks PJ for the heads up on the spinach fettucine - will buy it.

Thanks again...these noodles have become the mainstay for my DD's and I appreciate all the ideas. I think that I'm making my DD menus the same every time and it sure helps me get thru the day as I don't have to think about what I'm going to eat...I knew you all would come through for me....
