Shirataki Konjac Yam Noodles (glucomannan) - 200g serves two
Shirataki noodles are made from the root of the Konjac plant. Shirataki noodles are low carbohydrate, low calorie noodles. As a result they don't have a taste of their own. Instead they readily absorb the flavours of dishes they are cooked in. They are good in broths, soups, stews etc.
Traditionally they are used in a Japanese dish called Sukiyaki - a stew with beef & vegetables.
Although this product is a noodle, the texture is nothing like pasta or spaghetti, it has a more chewy texture and because of the glucomannan it gives you a very satisfying full feeling after a meal.
Please note these are the traditional plain shirataki yam noodles. These are not Tofu Shirataki which are a different product.
You need to drain the liquid they are packed in and rinse them well. Then par boil them for a minute or so, to remove the unusual smell. Shirataki can be cut into more manageable lengths. They are then ready to be added directly into the dish you're cooking.
They are growing in popularity as a diet food due to almost zero calories and low carbohydrate.
