Not bad! I have to go downtown to get them but make it part of other errands. I pay 2.49 for a big bag and 1.99 for small which is cheaper than ordering them on line. How much are yours when you order a case?

Well the ones I bought from the drug store are the Miracle Noodle brand. If I order them from netrition they are $2.79 a bag, but I don't order the MN brand. I order Konjac brand, the bags are way bigger, I get 24 bags for $30, plus $10 shipping, so $1.67 a bag.

Right now Konjac has a special for ones that expire in may for $20 a case, plus $10 shipping, so I could get them for $1.25 a bag. And it is a mix of the angel hair, linguini, and fetticini shapes, which are my favorite ones.

Italian Shrimp Shiritake:




Ingredients:
2 small bags prepared shiritake noodles
1tbsp butter
1tbsp grated parmesan cheese
6 Kalamata olives, sliced
1/2 portobello mushroom, diced
20 medium shrimp, peeled and deviened
2tbsp kraft light sour cream
1/2 medium tomato, diced
1tbsp chopped white onion
salt, pepper, and red chili flakes

Cook everything together except sour cream, and add sour cream at the end to make a sauce. Garnish with salt, pepper, and chili flakes.

Counts for whole recipe:
401 calories/21.5g fat/13.87g carbs/3.8g fiber/10.07g net carbs

I know that seems like a high carb count for one meal, but I had plenty to spare yesterday. You could omit the onion/tomato/sour cream and the carbs would be 7.46g total. I just added them because I had plenty to spare.

I bought some "shelf stable" Shirataki noodles yesterday at Hy-Vee. The expiration date is 11/18/2011. Would you use them?

Yup, I sure would.

I just really don't see how shiritake can expire Lol. They are a weird food.

Sorry to hear that Michelle. I hate when that happens.

Just wanted to say that mixing in a bag of shirataki noodles with the crackslaw recipe really works well. It stretches the recipe and I love that it doesn't add any carbs. I am going to add 2 bags next time.

Alrighty guys. Got a new one.

Cheesy "rice" bake. Made with miracle rice. OMG so good.
Out of the oven.

Up Close

With my meal of a frozen cooked chicken breast patty/lc ketchup/jalapeno slices:


Ingredients:
2 bags rinsed Miracle Rice
1/2 cup Ragu Double Cheese sauce
1 large egg
6tbsp grated parmesan cheese
3tbsp "I can't believe it's not butter" (yeah yeah I know, i haven't used this stuff in 3 years, but I'm trying to reduce calories for a bit)
2tsp yellow mustard
2tsp franks hot sauce
1tsp garlic powder
1tsp salt
1tsp pepper

Put the rinsed rice in a dry hot pan and let the liquid cook out. Add garlic powder to rice and mix well. While the rice is drying out, in a bowl mix cheese sauce, mustard, hot sauce, egg, salt & pepper, and half the parmesan cheese. I used a small loaf pan to bake it in. Add half the rice in the baking dish, then half the cheese, then the rest of the rice and rest of the cheese. Mix everything very well. Add the "i can't believe it's not butter" in dabs across the top, and cover with the remaining parmesan cheese. Bake @350* for about 20 minutes.

Makes 4 pretty good size servings@
136 calories/11.76g fat/2.74g carbs/.2g fiber/2.55g net carbs

Or if you are hungry and want to use it as a main dish, you could get 2 huge servings@
272 calories/23.52g fat/5.48g carbs/.4g fiber/5.1g net carbs

This was an experiment, so I think I could leave out the egg and "I can't believe it's not butter" and it would come out the same. Reducing the calories to 84 per 4 servings and the carbs to 2.65g.

WOE: Lowish carb (formerly on Protein Power)
Faux tapioca or rice pudding

I rarely measure anything so the following amounts are guesstimates, but I make tapioca/rice style pudding with the shiritake "rice".

1 bag "rice" well rinsed and drained
2 eggs
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup water
3 pkg. sweetener (I use SweetOne)
Sprinkle of nutmeg (actually I used "cake spice" -- apple or pumkin spice will work also

Whisk eggs, cream water together. Add sweetener and spices. Stir in "rice" and bake at 325 for 25-30 minutes or until it rises a bit and is puffy on top. It will fall when taken out of oven. Makes 4 small or 2 large servings at vitually no carbs.

Most folks will probably want a bit more sweetener. If you can handle a few more carbs, sprinkle a Tbs. of currants or chopped raisins in before baking. Heavenly!

Ok, this doesn't look that great, but it's good. You can either consider it sweet miracle rice (when I was a kid we used to make white rice, add a little milk, sweetener, and cinnamon and it was so good), or miracle rice "oatmeal". Whichever.



Ingredients:
1 bag prepared miracle rice
1/4 cup unsweetened almond breeze (I use Silk)
1tsp cinnamon
1tbsp butter
4 drops EZ-sweetz

Just mix it all up and put it in the microwave for about 1.5 minutes. Enjoy.

My DAD eats leftover rice like this! I always thought he was nuts!! He only puts milk and sugar in it though.


Well they were out of the noodles but had rice. On sale for $2.19 a bag, so I grabbed 2 bags. They are getting a big truck in tomorrow (boy do they need it!!) so she took my name and number and is supposed to call. I said to hold 4 bags of angel hair for me.

Please tell me the smell goes away when you dry them out in the pan? I have the strainer sitting outside cause the kitchen was getting an odor.

Fried rice looks amazing! I am going to use linda sue's recipe for Seoul chicken only using shrimp and scallops in place of the chicken and adding a few veggies.

Thanks Michelle! I went over & ordered the case. I got it in yesterday evening.
Do they usually have the bags marked as to which type noodle is in them? None of these are marked! Oh they have a lot on the front & back, but NOT what type each is! I can tell which are the angle hair, tho barely. It is really hard to actually see the size & shape. I can't tell the difference in the rest. Guess those don't matter too much, cause I really don't know linguine & fettucini anyway. I know that sounds weird, but I never knew much about different kinds of pasta. I know regular spaghetti, & angel hair (which was my favorite when I ate pasta).
Now I'm gonna have to come up with different ways to eat them.

I bought garlic & herb Miracle noodles awhile back. They are pretty good. I've used them a couple of times to make shrimp scampi.

Hmmm Billie, my bags were marked but it's been about 6 months since I've ordered from Konjac.These are what they *should* look like:

Angel Hair:

Linguini-
Fettuccine-

The linguini and fettuccine are similar, but the fettuccine are larger, like what you would get in an alfredo dish.

This is what real linguini pasta looks like:

Wow....just got a call back from the health food store. They are not getting the miracle noodles back in because they didn't sell very well. There wasn't a single one left in the cooler.
I guess I will have to check out Trader Joes. After I get my tax $$!!

Thanks Michelle. That is what the picture looked like on the site, but not what my bags or product look like. I will post pics below of my bags. No use taking a pic of each type bag, as they are all just alike!!! When I brought the first bag up to take a pic, I thought I was bringing up the angel hair. But after looking closer (after I'd taken pcs), I decided I had brought up either fettichini or linguini. Trying to see those 2 in the bag, I cannot tell the difference. I'm sure one is larger than the other, but in the bag, I just can't tell. I can barely tell the difference between them & the angel hair!!!
I guess it really doesn't matter, but thought it really strange they aren't marked, and are so different than the pics they have on the site. (Since these are about to expire, maybe they have changed the packaging since these were done. )
Thanks for the help!
Front, Back, Linguini or fettichini?, Angel Hair

I can't imagine why they don't put the name of the type noodle on the package. It is definitely no where to be seen on them. And there is so little "blank" space to see the noodles. Then they blend together, and at least with my eyes, I can barely if at all make out the size & shape. That pic of the angel hair is actually easier to tell in the picture than in "real life". Maybe I'll have to take pics of each of them to see what they look like. But..... I couldn't tell much about the other one in the pic either.

If you open them and take a pic I can definately tell you lol.

I actually found fettuccine miracle noodles at my health food store and I was stoked! I had 2 packs last night with butter/parm/salt and pepper. Uuuuugh. I'm going today to get more. I love them, they are my favorite. They taste like real noodles to me.

Are the packages you photoed different packages? They all look like angel hair to me. Except possibly the third one may be linguine. It's really hard to tell.

Well, I will be able to tell the angel hair for sure when it is opened. And I MIGHT be able to tell the others. Not sure. But I sure can't tell the L from the F in the packages. It'll be enie, minie, miney, mo, and don't guess for me it will really make a difference. I may try one some way today. Not sure how I wanna try them. Won't be with Parm cheese tho!!! hehehe
Thanks for all your help!

I somehow missed seeing this question, when I posted that last relpy.
The first 2 are the same package, and I think the third. The last one IS angel hair.
I just had the linguine package (am eating it now as a mater of fact, or part of it). It is linguine.
I brought all the packages back up (had them downstairs) got them in better light, and looked closely. Finally was able to make the distinctions! I'm marking the packages now.
I'm not eating the linguine very traditionally. I had some red spaghetti sauce (home canned w/meat), so I heated the noodles up in the meat sauce. I needed something quick! Here it is before I added sauce & cooked.
