Hi All!
Day 6 Phase 1...

I see some here use "Miracle Noodles"...zero cal, zero carb etc...

I had never heard of them before, so googles them and ended up on amazon reading reviews which were so split as to great or disgusting I figured I would ask here where I can trust the answers. I did search the forum for a thread that may have discussed this prior and came up with nothing....

So whats the word on these?
How are they?
What is texture like?
How would they be in a stir fry in a "like" LoMein kind of dish? Haha/....(I LOVE LoMein)....

Thanks all!
Jake

Here's my scoop on them
I really like them in stir frys and they take on the taste of whatever your cooking, especially when you add spices like MRs Dash table blend.

I also add them in my IP soups and it tastes like you have pasta in your soups which to me feel like a nice comfort soup......Yummie.

Keep I mind when you open up a package you have to run it under cold water because it has a faint fishy smell but don't let that detour you.

Another thought.....get the angel hair one...I got the lagunine (sorry about the spelling) and it looked gross to me and I couldn't eat it cause it looked like plastic to me

When you add it to your stir fry and then add your allowance of olive oil and and add your spices....it is sooooo yummy

I hope this helps you

They are somewhat of an unusual texture. You can NOT compare them to conventional noodles. When you open them, they have a very "fishy" smell and need to be rinsed under hot water or boiled for about 3 minutes. Read on their website about dry roasting them. Don't try eating them alone.

I am including the recipes I've collected up for them. They are worth a try. Like a lot of things, you may or may not like them.

Shiritake / Miracle Noodle Capers Surprise
1 bag Shirataki/Miracle Noodles
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tbsp crushed capers
spray butter
salt / pepper
1 tbsp dijon mustard

Sesame Noodles
1 or 2 7oz. bags of Miracle Noodle (the less noodles you use, the more the sauce is distributed, and the more flavorful the noodles are)
1/4 cup Kikkoman Soy Sauce
1/4 rounded cup WF peanut spread , softened in microwave 15 seconds on high
2 tbsp cider or rice vinegar
1 tsp dark sesame oil
2 tbsp Hot Chili sauce
2 cups shredded chinese cabbage and kohlrabi
1 cup bean sprouts
4 scallions, chopped
1 tsp sesame seeds
Directions:
Open bag of Miracle Noodles into a colander and rinse with cold water for a couple of minutes and boil for one minute, pat dry with a paper towel or small hand towel. Cut noodles with scissors to make smaller pieces. In the bottom of a large bowl, whisk together soy, peanut butter, vinegar, sesame oil, and hot sauce. Add noodles and veggies and toss to combine the noodles and coat them evenly with sauce.
Sprinkle scallions and sesame seeds throughout the salad and serve. Or you can heat the sauce for a couple of minutes in a sauce pan, then add noodles and serve hot! Itís makes great leftovers the next day!! I had to adapt this recipe to make it phase 1 compliant so it is not the original recipe she did on her show, but super Yummy!

They are similar to Japanese rice noodles, but chewier. I personally like the fettucine in asian stir frys and i add the rice to my puddings for 'tapioca'. Definitely sample a bag before you buy in bulk, since it seems that folks that dont like them REALLY dont like them. Generic shiratake noodles might be found at an asian grocerer.

I haven't tried the rice noodles, but have tried the others 3 times and hated them all 3 times and I am not a picky eater. They smell terrible and are the weirdest texture. I think you have to just try them and see!

vovo
07-08-2012, 07:12 PM
IMO, the fishy smell isn't that bad since it's mostly removed by boiling them, but i can't handle the texture.

I don't know how else to explain it.....they seem "squeaky" to me.

From the reviews, as you've found, t's definitly you like 'em or you hate 'em. I hope you like them as it's always great to have more options!

Hey Thanks everyone for the responses and also Thanks wingnut for all the recipes! Man, those recipes look great!

iluv2bhapy: I am new to this also but from all the reading, it seems that these noodles we are talking about are zero calories, 0 carbs...so they are "free" for this and nay other restrictive diet program. Like water...you use it when and how you want as it has no nutritional value (except some fiber).

Now that being said, the recipes wingnut posted look awesome so we already have a few ideas of what to do with them "if" it turns out we like them, that is!

I am going to roam the health food shops tomorrow and see if I can find 1 package and give it whirl...if it works out and I find them, will give my report back to this thread.

Thanks again all!

I've been looking for noodles in all the wrong places (yes sorry I too got the song in my head writing that) - for the last couple of shopping trips. Guess I'll order on line unless someone knows a chain store that carries them (Albertsons & Fred Meyer have been a bust). Thanks for asking the question and all the responses today. Reminds me of the time someone at work tried to say "we think alike" and instead said "we share a brain" haha!

I tried them, thought they tasted similar to chewing rubber bands. Like Lizrr said, you like em or you dont and you will not know until you try them. Personally for stir frys i prefer to make zucchini noodles. Lots of people do like them though.

07-09-2012, 05:11 AM
@caasie- they r made from a root in asia..known to be from yams or potatos..you can google sherataki or miracle noodles n find more info..they really have no taste..ive had the angle, feticcini, rice and spinach noodles..my fav is angel..i get mine at hyvee by the regular pasta..they have some by the organic/tofu isle at hyvee n walmart but these have calories where the others have nothing..ive used the rice to stuff peppers with..theres lots of things u can do..just pretend their regular noodles..about $2.50ish for a package

Easy...just take raw zucchini and i use a vegetable peeler, and 'peel' from each side down to the seeds. These peels resemble noodles and of course count towards your veggies, and taste great. Saute or add to stir fry.

I got a spiral slicer that I have been using to make zucchini noodles with. Cost about $20 and has a fettuccine/angel hair setting. Have made stir fry, added then to the soups and made a dish with the "noodles", shrimp, olive oil, garlic and some spices! All turned out well, helped fill me up and got my veggies in ;)

Speaking of noodles!. My husband who is a personal trainer (so is working my tush off!) eats a lot of Paleo foods. One of my favorite recipes is Paleo Pad Thai. If you Google it there will be tons of recipes that you have to tweak but it is sooooooo amazing! You basically grate a zuc, stir fry, and spice and sauce up. Chicken or shrimp are great additions.
Now of course on Paleo they don't do soy- so my husband uses Coconut Amino Acids (tastes the same) from the Health Food Store. In IP soy is allowed-- but if you have a WI you might seek out the sodium free Kikomani!
Spaghetti squash is also a major yum!

Seedless cucumbers make excellent noodles too. I use my fine julienne slicer on my mandoline, I've done the zucchini as well, i sometimes mix them in with the miracle noodles fettuccine.

for $9.99 at a local kitchen store....it is awesome!

Liz: Thats the first thing I did when we got home...haha! Had a cuke with WF italian dressing...YUM! It came out so "fine" was very much like thin spaghetti as to size...can't wait for tonight to use it in zucchini!

I LOVE this new tool!
I am still searching locally for 1 pack of miracle noodles to try. Don't want to pay shipping just to try a pack. Still have like 5-6 more places it could be so maybe later today after my work is done.

You don't have to fill out the top part, just the little blue "click here" button in the upper middle section will lead you (hopefully) to them. http://www.miraclenoodle.com/t-store_locations.aspx I had to put the zip code of a city near mine to get it working.

I tried the miracle rice today in the hot chicken soup. I think it needs to be more in a stir fry perhaps and not swimming in soup. I thought they were fine eating a few just on their own. I saved some for playing with other combinations - maybe I'll try making sort of bubble tea with the lemon protein drink and miracle rice, or just putting it in a veggie stir fry.
