What are Shirataki Noodles?
- Shirataki Noodles are gluten-free and made from a yam-like plant called Konnyaku or Konjac. They are essentially calorie-free, with a fair amount of fiber and traces of calcium and iron.
- They’re incredibly versatile as they absorb other flavors that are added to them.
- Though similar to rice noodles, they are a bit heartier and have a slightly denser texture.
Shirataki Noodles recipes are fantastic for gluten-free eaters. While you can get Shirataki “Spaghetti” Noodles, and Shiratake “Fettucine” Noodles, don’t be fooled, they’re not one bit Italian — they’re a quintessential Japanese food.
You can use them as you would Soba or Udon in soups and stir-fries, like this one.
With all that going for them, it’s no wonder they are often branded as Miracle Noodles!
