And Marcea, I'm from the Deep South, and a black iron skillet is a nescessity. I have given one to each of my children before they leave for college. #5 got hers this year. Essential.
Annewil - that explains it. MMMMMMMMmmmmmm good !!!!

Glad to hear it helped and I'll look forward to hearing what you think of it!

Glucomannan Orders

Yep - all I got was a notice that they'd received my order with no notice about them having shipped it. I did get my order within a couple of days and it came Priority USPS. Hmmmmmm - If they send it Priority USPS Mail, Isn't that supposed to get anywhere in the USA with 3 business days?

Made these tonight...while I wasn't looking, my husband ate all but one! If he only knew what the ingredients were, he would have never touched them! Once I'll convert him to low carb.

I've been eating the pre-packaged noodles for years and using the powder for jello and pudding and thickening things. I would have never thought of baking! Thanks so much.

Yay Pooti!!!! Let us know how it turns out.

Ms Woods, you should have your by now if it was the Konjac you ordered. I also ordered Monday, and got mine Thursday, but I'm closer to them than you are. It came in one of those flat rate envelopes. No samples like motyok.... :>( The envelope was sure in bad shape, but it made it. I didn't get a notice that it had been mailed either. Just the notice from PayPal that they had sent the payment, or that it had been ordered, or whatever their notice is. Nothing from the Konjac site itself.

I may try the rolls, they sound good. I have not had any luck making noodles or the pancake or much of anything. everything just turns into a big glob of a mess, like that stuff slime we used to play with, remember that?

I made chocolate pudding with it, a few little lumps in it like homemade,very good, and low calorie. Its much better than gums, not slimy like xanthan, so I will use it to thicken sauces.

I used my smart stick and sprinkled it in the water slowly while blending, then add it to the chocolate I had on the stove (bakers choc, coconut oil, a bit of cream, mostly hot water, splenda) I had quite a bit left, and wonder what will happen to it as it cools. Maybe it will be like a custard.

HI all you GLUC fans!


Can one OD on this gluc powder?

I mean I don't eat it everyday, but today I ate TWO big batches of thick Gluc pudding. I hope this stuff doesn't form into a ROCK in my intestines!

Seriously, anyone eat a LOT of this and live to tell?

If you lived, did it affect weight loss?

If you didn't live, you have my condolences.

has anyone made the pasta and cut it into noodles? would a julienne slicer work? or a mandoline? I dont see how a regular pasta maker could work, they all roll the dough into a thin strip, this is a gel and can't be rolled

Morning Everyone! Work today so a quick note: I made another pudding today. The addition of the cocoa powder to the mix made for a much better flavor than the swiss miss alone. 35 calories. This is my after work treat today. It should be nice and cold when I get home.

Cup of brewed vanilla coffee,
1 packet of swiss miss diet cocoa (25)
tbls cocoa powder (10)
dash of butter flavoring
splenda to taste
shake of salt

Blender at low speed.

Good and chocolaty!

Blonde.... You didn't mention the Glcu in your recipe! How much did you use. Probably said in the previous one, but it isn't on this page, and could get confusing to someone just joining the thread. And, I'm only assuming you probably used the same amount, but you may not have. (and I'm assuming 1 tbsp cocoa pwd. ?)

OMG!!!!

I made the rolls and they are wonderful. Marcea, thank you, thank you! When I peeked in the oven and saw them rising I got all excited, but then I remembered most of the lowcarb frankenfood, (looks like brownies, smells like brownies, tastes like egg, yuck, throw them all away) But when I bit in I knew right away I have discovered gold! They look like a yeast roll, all light and airy with holes, and think of the possibilities! Brownies! Cakes! Tortillas! Hamburger rolls, hotdog rolls. I can hardly contain myself. I hope I can post the pictures

Hi guys!!!

I have now made glucomannan pan fried dumplings twice since last night lol. I'm in lurve!

My sense is that the world will be divided into two kinds of people - those who love pan fried glucodumplings and those who don't! I love them, Denny hates them. He says they remind him of overcooked squid. I don't get that texture from them, but I do get a chewy texture - not rubbery or squeaky like the thicker cuts of konjac noodles you buy.

Today I experimented with them and made them very thin by flooding a saucer with liquid and seasoning the liquid then dusting them with gluco powder from a small hand held strainer. Let it sit a while. Then pried it up with a spatula and fried it in a pan with liquid and also with a few drops of olive oil from a squirt bottle.

I made a great sauce to go with it too and then served it with a quick Asian slaw. It was an awesome lunch snack for only 74cals (today is my DD on JUDDD). And the best thing is I still have enough cals left to do a big serving of protein tonight!

I could seriously eat another batch of these for dinner!

I tried cooking the pan fried noodles with just the liquid but I think it needed the oil in order to firm up and get some brown spots on them. These did not photograph well at all, but the taste was delicious!!

Oh also, I made a lo mein last night with the konjac noodles. I have the kinds with just the konjac fiber only, but these have some of the konjac starch in it. They have 2g of net carbs per serving. I thought they were fabulous. Not as chewy as the others and for 6n grams per bag, super easy to take! I'm going to order a case of the fetuccini and see how it is. The fetuccini and linguini are my favorite cuts of the other type (fiber only).

WOW Pooti!! This looks FABULOUS!!
So, you didn't use any lime water to help it hold together?

How much liquid to gluc powder did you use?

Also, what brand of the noodles do you have with only the fiber in it? I buy mine at the Asian market and I'm not sure how to count them.

Thanks!

I gotta try that cheese bread today!

Konjac flour I think is also Konjac starch.

Re" the choc pudding, SORRY! How could I forget the glue? I use 1tsp per cup of liquid for pudding, and 1/2 tsp for gravy.

Yesterday was DD and I made a batch of miracle noodles, sauteed with soy sauce and broccoli slaw in the morning. After work I came home and made a thin gravy using veg broth, soy sauce, glu powder, chinese 5 spice, and those little water flavoring packets. You know, the kind you pour into your water bottle to make it taste better? This one was orange. I used 1/2 packet. Mixed it all together cold then heated on the stove. When it thickened up, I added the now cold noodles and heated it through. De-lish!!

Homemade noodles? Me??? No no Nanette! I used miracle noodles in my "batch" of soy sauce noodles yesterday. I wanted them to sit in the sauce while I was at work. I tried making the glu "pancake" and I couldn't eat it at all. The texture was not to my liking.

I have to say...using dry spices with th glu powder works very well. You know how it absorbs flavors ......

I do love using SF alternatives like the drink mix to change up the flavors.

No it's okay! It's not inconceivable that someone out there is making homemade miracle noodles....just not me.

Have fun baking today. Maybe you will post some pictures of your beautiful breads?
