Still can't find the rice shirataki. Has anyone tried using a blender to try and make the regular noodles into rice?

I'm fortunate to have a local (about 30 minutes from home) source for the Miracle Rice. I'd like to buy 5-6 bags next time I'm at the market that carries it, but they keep it refrigerated, even though the bags say that you don't have to refrigerate until after you open the bag.

Does anyone know if it's okay to store these (unopened) in my pantry, even though they were previously refrigerated?

I am having a delicious rice lunch today- a rinsed and lemon squirted a bag before I left for work today, and brought a red pepper carmelized onion chicken burger (from Costco- holy yum), and a couple of Tbs of alfredo sauce. Heated up the burger, sliced it in to bight sized pieces, stirred it all together, and heated through. Yum!!

Ms Woods, thanks for being such a shiritaki disciple- I am convered!

I would love to order from Netrition but shipping to Canada make it expensive and difficult. I have often 'cruised' that site and filled my cart with all kinds of goodies but when it comes to shipping....I lose interest. Maybe someday, they will set up a sister company here. The competition is small.

Chicken and Rice Alfredo

I used a different recipe for this yesterday and didn't like it much, but this one I like a LOT. I was trying to make something that was one serving, but this turned out to be closer to two servings, but not quite. It's good for when you're looking for something rich and filling.

Chicken and Rice Alfredo

1 bag Miracle Rice, rinsed and drained
4 oz. cooked chicken, diced
¼ cup spinach
1 tablespoon green onions, chopped
2 oz. cream cheese
2 tablespoons HWC
2 tablespoons parmesan
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon salt

Prepare Miracle Rice and place in a dry warm skillet.

Add cream cheese, HWC, nutmeg, garlic powder, salt and pepper, and stir until melted.

Add chicken, spinach, and green onions. Warm through to heat the chicken and wilt or defrost spinach. Top with parmesan.

This looks delish! Last night, we had shrimp and broccoli w/ fresh alfredo. So good. I had my local store order a case for me, and they are giving me 10% off.

CrazyWoman....I see you use PureVia. I have never heard of this before. My question is how does it taste? I have tried several types of Stevia in the past but couldn't get past the taste. I would really like to use a "natural" sweetener but I have found none where the taste didn't bother me significantly.

I have never used PureVia! Not sure what I had said that made you think I used it. I do think I remember replying to a post that talked about it. But I don't use it. So sorry I can't help.

Thank you Sligh, this is a wonderful recipe

I made this one with pork, but it would also be great with shrimp, chicken, or beef. Next up is either MsWoods Spanish Rice or Linda Sue's Mexican Rice.

Pork Fried Rice

1 package Miracle Rice
1 ½ tablespoons sesame oil
2 green onions, sliced
½ teaspoon garlic, minced
1 ½ teaspoon ginger, freshly ground
2 tablespoons soy sauce
8 oz. ham steak, cubed
2 eggs, beaten

I prefer little strips of egg for fried rice, so instead of scrambling them, I lightly beat the eggs and pour them into an 8” hot skillet with enough oil or butter to keep it from sticking. Cook the eggs without stirring, so it lays flat, then flip it just once. Let it cool slightly, then roll the egg up and slice it into strips. Set aside.

In a large skillet or wok, heat sesame oil. Then quickly stir-fry the green onions and the garlic for about 2 minutes, watching closely so it does not burn. Add remaining ingredients and stir until somewhat browned and flavors are fully combined.
From Barbo: As usual I had to tweak some, but it was a very good
tasting fried rice. I used the lemon juice in the
last rinse water and voila there is no smell at all.
I also poached as the package suggested.
Hoping to always have this in my pantry.
Like it better than the noodles.

Glad you liked the fried rice Barbo. I just made it again today for lunch and finally started buying miracle rice by the case.

Anxiously awaiting the rice pudding recipe you asked for.

SLIGH

Billie already made the rice pudding. See her recipe and beautiful
pictures. I was dreaming about tapioca pudding using the
miracle rice. You remember the box recipe? It called for milk (cream)
sugar (sub) eggs and eggwhite whipped to fold in. Yummy pure
vanilla. Hey I think we can make it with one package of M.Rice.
Soon as I clear out the Passover Revolution Cake from Dr. Atkins
I shall make it. Unless someone beats me to it.

This IS very good. I have made it a few times using shrimp prethawed from Trader Joes and the eggs tossed in, not precooked. I like to use as few pans as possible, less cleanup!

Tamari sauce? Or this recipe from a web place called Babble:

Gluten-free Soy Sauce Substitute

"adapted from several sources"

2 cups beef broth
2 tsp. cider vinegar
1 tsp. molasses
pinch ground ginger
pinch black pepper
pinch garlic powder
pinch onion powder

Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and simmer until reduced to 1/2 cup. Cool and refrigerate – shake before using.

There ARE gluten-free soy sauces but it takes some searching - and Tilly is right, tamari is USUALLY gluten-free. Read those labels though!

IIRC, the Braggs Liquid Aminos is gluten-free too but again - check the label on it before purchase.

I have a quick question. I was wondering if everyone is blanching the rice after rinsing it? What's the purpose of doing this?

I don't blanch it, I dry it in a hot pan for 5-7 minutes. It takes more moisture out and gives it a better texture.

Try the rice, not the same as regular rice, but a good substitute. And after you rinse it the smell is gone. Hope the GF sauce turns out well for you, rosethorns. Let me know how it tastes.

I got my Miracle Rice at

Amazon.com, also my first batch came from Netrition.
I cannot find it locally either.

Tonight I am making the recipe that Billie posted.
After I see how we like it, then I might go for the tapioca
thing.
