I'm going to take the plunge and try shiratake. I'm going to check one more local place and then probably order from netrition. So far, I've only been able to find the noodles with tofu and I am not interested in those.

What I want to try is the angel hair and rice. I'm not really sure about the angel hair but MsWoods has a picture of a shrimp stir fry early in this thread that is absolutely screaming "make me" . I've got to do it!!

The other thing that comes to mind is adding some of the rice to my low carb soup recipes. I made a soup recipe last week and thickened it with gluc. Then I started thinking about not using quite as much gluc and adding in the rice. I could make chicken/rice soup...wow..that sounds good to me.

MsWoods I noticed you mentioned some tummy troubles and wondered how much you were eating when that started? Guess I don't want to overdo.

Mobear-I have been eating them a lot lately and haven't noticed too much tummy problems. I've been eating them a lot. It does make me go to the bathroom a lot because of the fiber, but then again, who doesn't need a good cleaning out lol.

Michelle what a great idea to have this thread. I am restarting low carb today and I'm interested in trying these noodles. I just love pasta and noodles! Do you have an asian type soup recipe using these noodles? I'll need to read this thread today. Can't wait to try them!

I dont know how I have been here so long and am just now finding this thread! Several years ago, my Safeway used to carry them and I used them a lot. They stopped, and I forgot. I dont know why I didnt think to look online. I cannot wait to try the rice! And Michelle, I love your blog too.

Amazon has them! And I have free shipping because I got Prime with my Kindle Fire!

6 8 oz packages for $19.99? Is that a good price?

I think that's the combo pack: Miracle Noodle Variety Pack 2 of Each - Shirataki Angel Hair Pasta, Shirataki Fettuccini Pasta and Shirataki Miracle Rice (Pack of 6)

The Rice is: Miracle Noodle Shirataki Rice, 8-Ounce Packages (Pack of 6)
$17.04 $15.49
Subscribe & Save: $13.17
Or: Miracle Noodle Shirataki Miracle Rice 10 Bags
$21.50 (if you don't already have the free shipping, it will be more. Not a eligible for free shipping product -- the above is)
Even better (if you want just the rice)! But I was thinking the rice was what you were looking for, but maybe I got that mixed up. (But for others, they have different prices on the different noodle products, and combos.

Soooooo apparently the person that called and told me Sunnybridge was not going to carry the noodles anymore was mistaken!!! I stopped in today and they had them! I grabbed 4 bags of the angel hair!!
I said something to the cashier and she said she didn't know why someone would have told me that because they are a BIG seller! Oh well, I got some!

Started out by sauteeing 2 oz red and orange peppers
Heated up one each Green Giant Single serve Broc and Cheese and Cauli and cheese. Then added to the pan and turned heat low to "marinate" the flavors.
Add your fav shirataki noodles.
I seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic.
Dinner for about 95 calories!
Low Carb too... Next time I might only use 1 of the frozen veg, and some basil in the sauce!

sauteed onions and red and orange peppers thin julienne. I guessed at 25 calories and to be honest it was probably less! (next time I will weigh)
1 pkg shiratake noodles
1/2 cup Rao's Chunky Garden Spaghetti Sauce 70 calories- 4 carbs
dash of soysauce 5 calories
bit of chili garlic paste- I used a bit too much and it was a tad spicier than I would have liked normally. You can skip the spicy sauce if you like.

This was my first DD meal after the cruise and I am rather impressed with it! Will try another meal with the shirataki noodles soon!

I have made this a few times now, and have found lower calorie sauce, still for about 4 carbs per 1/2 cup! Sometimes I add some chicken bouillon and skip the soy sauce. Very good dish!!

I've been having the Fettuccine (may have used Linguini one day) every day the last several days in different ways with Classico Tomato & Basil sauce. It's been just me this last week, and a jar goes a LONG ways for just me. First day I cooked 1/2# of ground beef. I spread out my "pasta" on my plate, put part of the meat, and then covered with sauce, added extra garlic & onion pwd, and heated in microwave.
Some days I ate that, then some days I spread the noodles with cottage cheese, sprinkled with some shredded cheese, and a slice of smoked gooda, then the sauce (adding the garlic & onion pwd when I thought about it).... Lasagna!!!

I just made some broiled chicken, steamed broccoli and pan fried some miracle rice then melted some butter in with the rice and ate it plain with some salt and pepper. It was pretry good. I'm going to make some chicken fried rice tomorrow with the left overs. I love the miracle rice. I need to order some fetticcinj and angel hair pasta to try.

Ack! I just realized my mom threw away my noodles!!!! I don't know why it all of a sudden popped into my head! I had them in a bag in the crisper section (she never goes in there unless she oddly needs celery for something)! I guess I am going to have to stop and get more and put a note on them to not touch or throw away!!


She must have thrown away my dads white asparagus too because he asked me if it was still in there and I told him I hadn't touched it but it's not there anymore! She needs to leave cleaning out the fridge to me! I actually go through it once a week so I don't know why she felt compelled to throw our perfectly fine stuff away!

Done ranting.

So sorry PghPaLady that your mother threw out your noodles . I can't find any of the Miracle Noodles/Rice locally but I hope you can! I would be really upset if I had to wait for another order from Netrition to have my Miracle Rice

A note on the next bag you put in the fridge is a good idea!

Luckily I CAN get them locally! I was in the store on Friday and noticed they were on sale so I better stop back tomorrow after work (as long as we don't get all the crazy snow they are calling for!!)! I think they were $1.99/ bag!

I live outside Cleveland, OH and can't find any of the shirataki products in local markets, health food stores or grocery stores.

I order the Miracle Rice and Miracle Angel Hair (which I haven't tried) from Netrition who sponsors LCFs. Shipping is reasonable and I get fast delivery.
Whole Foods is a 75 mile round trip so that is not something I would do.

Stir-Fry Shrimp and Tofu Shirataki Noodles

237 calories per serving and very filling!



INGREDIENTS:

24 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 8-oz. packages of tofu shirataki noodles (well-rinsed in a strainer)
1½ T. coconut oil
2 oz. onion, slivered into thin strips
2 oz. red bell pepper, slivered into thin strips
1 very large jalapeno, seeded and slivered into thin strips
1 clove garlic, minced
¼ tsp. ginger root, peeled and minced
1 T. sherry or white wine (omit if on Induction)
1 T. low-sodium soy sauce
Pinch sesame seed seasoning (or toasted sesame seeds)
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 c. hot water
1/8 tsp. xanthan gum

DIRECTIONS: Open bags of noodles and rinse them for 3-4 minutes under hot water to get the fishy odor off of them. Trust me the shrimp topping will kill any remaining odor on the noodles after rinsing. Set aside. Prepare all the vegetables and have them at the ready by the stove. Crumble the bouillon cube into the hot water. Add soy sauce, garlic and ginger. Heat coconut oil in a non-stick wok or skillet. Stir-fry the onion, red pepper and jalapeno until just begins to get tender. Add shrimp and saute until they are curling and opaque. Pour chicken bouillon mixture into pan and saute 1-2 minutes. Sprinkle xanthan gum over top of mixture and stir/saute 1-2 minutes or until it begins to slightly thicken the sauce and the liquid is adhering to the shrimp and veggies, turn off fire. Plate half the noodles on each of two dinner plates and dip half the shrimp mixture up over the noodles. Serve with a lovely green salad.

I've just read that you can cook them in the oven and they go crispy!!

It was on the Dukan website
Preparation
1.Drain and rinse Shirataki noodles and pat dry.
2.Cut the noodles into pieces and place on cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
3.Add your favorite spices
4.Heat oven to 375F and bake for 40 minutes or until crispy.
5.You can broil for the last 2-5 minutes.

Serve as a snack or as a crunch topping to salads.

I made a good quick chicken noodle soup with some of the yam shirataki noodles last night for my DOWN day. I just added a pinch of onion powder and Mccormick Montreal Chicken seasoning to the chicken broth and chopped up noodles and slightly thickened it up with a sprinkle of xanthan gum. It was delish!! I actually like the tofu shirataki's better, but the yam noodles are OK for soups and such. Good way to use them up.
