Just tried shirataki noodles for the first time last night. They are awesome! Totally satisfied my craving for pasta. Yes the stinky fish water they pack it in smells gross, but it washes off easily. I microwaved the noodles for about 1 minute before I added them to my sauce w/veggies then baked them for 10 mins w/fat free mozzarella cheese - YUM! The texture is alot like al dente pasta - alittle chewy but not that noticeable. Anyone have any good recipes for the shirataki noodle?..

They are awesome! I use them a couple of time a week for stirfry dishes. I use either chicken or shrimp. I was afraid to try them because I heard so many "scary" things about them but I will continue to use them even in maintenance...

I so want to try them, but no one sells them. Where do you get them? Do I have to order them online?.

I was thinking Trader Joe's would have them, but mine doesn't...

Comment #2

I live in the MD/PA area - Giant Food sells them in the organic refrigerated section. I have heard that Trader Joe's and Safeway sell them too..

Comment #3

I really like kelp noodles, but I haven't tried Shirataki. Kelp noodles I think are pretty similar, I either eat them raw in a salad or fry them up for "pasta." I've only been able to find them online though, but a Trader Joe's is finally opening up near me! I'll check once they open..

It seems you gals are talking about the tofu shiritaki noodles, which are carried by most Shop Rites (look next to the organic/vegan food in the produce aisle)..

There are no calorie shiritaki noodles without the tofu in them, you can buy them online at or I think amazon also sells them. These don't have the fishy smell the tofu ones do, and they aren't as gummy. It's hard to describe the texture, I've grown to like it. A few no calorie noodles in Medifast Chicken Noodle Soup with some black pepper, and it is suddenly edible...

Love them too. I take lean Hamburger and Walden farms Ketchup and garlic and whatever spices you have along with some chopped tomatoes and make a sauce. I pour it over my Shirataki noodles and you have spaghetti. Some people make meatballs with their hamburger. Their egg noodle shape are great too for soups. Rinse them very well and I boil them a little in some salt water or garlic salt ect...

There are 2 servings in a bag and each serving equals - 1/2 C green. There seem to be many recipes for their use. Just google Shirataki noodles and you will find some..

Was just salivating over this thread and the thought of pasta found this link to getting shirataki online: The Miracle Noodle.

EDIT: Oh, oops! barbijd92 beat me to the punch on that one!..

I've found these at TJ, Safeway, Albertson's, and Fred Meyer's(Kroger's east coast). In the bigger grocery chains it seems they keep them in the produce section near prepackaged salads and fruit bowls with some other various tofu things...

Comment #8

I think Shop Rite must be a regional thing. I've never seen one in California (neither Los Angeles or Sacramento, and I travel between the two)...

Comment #9

Shop Rite is north east US.

I prefer the miracle noodles which are made from the Konjac flour. All fiber and no carbs, no calories. They are the traditional shiritake. I find they have a better "flavor" and texture than the tofu type after a quick boil...

Comment #10

I love to melt two wedges of laughing cow in my noodles.... Yum!..

Comment #11

I just found them in Whole foods on Long Island and they were the cheapest I've ever seen, $1.69..

Comment #12

Do you think these noodles would taste good mixed in some salad with some newmans lighten up salad dressing basalmic? I'm kinda curious lOL..
