Default Shirataki Noodles

Has anyone tried Shirataki Noodles? I have read good things about them for producing a filling effect and they are almost totally fiber.
I have not ever been a pasta person, but I am always looking for new low carb foods to make dishes with. I am wondering if I could make lo-mein with them, that is one of the only noodle dishes I ever liked.

I have tried the ones with a tofu base; they come in long, long pieces and you must rinse them very well before using. I found them tasteless, but a good filler at 20 calories. There are different varieties now. If you go to the hungrygirl.com website, you will find a number of recipes to use with them.

The Miracle Noodles and rice are amazing!!! Just make sure you rinse them well and dry them before you add to the food you are preparing. Also, I don't think they would be all that good plain--when you add them to a dish they take on the flavor of the food. Yummy! Wonderful! Filling!!

I wanted to add onto my post, but am not sure how to do it. When I said dry them, I just meant that I put them between two paper towels and pat out the excess moisture. If you have more questions, just let me know.

Thank you both for responding! I found them in my local Albertsons tonight while shopping, I bought a package.
I must say, they look nasty and slimy lol
But I think I will try a making them as lo-mein and see if I like them.

I recently discovered Miracle Noodles - I think they are similar? I LOVE them! I typically
mix in chicken and tomatoes. I personally love the taste.

I use the tofu ones for a lo mein. Delish. I add egg, shred cabbage, garlic, lite soy sauce and cook in an oriental flavored oil. One of my favorite items. Sometimes I add protein in for a complete meal.

I have had the Miracle Noodle brand. I found them at Giant Eagle. If you purchase them, be sure to rinse them before heating them up. The kinda have a fishy odor. Texture is a bit chewy and really not like a noodle at all. They don't have much of a flavor on their own, unless you buy the marinated ones. I added pesto and olive oil to mine. Edible, but not very tasty or satisfying. They are very low calorie/low carb, and if you're just looking for a filler, these might do the trick.

Personally, I won't be buying them again. I'd rather buy whole grain pasta. If you need low-carb pasta, I'd suggest Dreamfields pasta. My mom's doctor suggested it to her because she's diabetic.

Had some today in a tasty soup I made for the week. Brussels sprouts, carrots, green onions, chives, and tofu in turkey stock. So satisfying.

I treat them how I treat rice sticks or ramen - not how I treat other pastas. They work very well in Asian style dishes and noodle bowls.

For a pasta sub, I like to use zucchini noodles (zucchini peeled into noodles). They are more noodle-y to me and I'm getting in some vitamin C, vitamin A, and one zucchini is only around 30-35 calories

I made lo-mein with the Shirataki noodles today, not bad at all. I will definitely make them again.
Thank you everyone for your input, without your recommendations, I would not have ever tried them. I think they will be a great addition to my meal plans.

I love Shirataki noodles. I've been eating a Shirataki based mac&cheese for lunches this week. Admittedly, it isn't nearly as satisfying as a real mac & cheese, but it is loads better for me and doesn't taste too bad at all.
