Shirataki noodles are extremely low in calories and made from either soybeans/tofu or Japanese konjac yam. They are usually sold in a bag filled with water, in the refrigerated area of the produce aisle (with the tofu, wonton wrappers, miso, etc.) and will last unopened for up to a year. They are flavorless, but may have a “fishy” odor when the package is opened. Rinse the noodles well in a strainer or sieve and then dry the noodles by placing them in a dry pan over medium heat until they “squeak.” Then they can be used in a variety of recipes from a fun Pasta Foodie Bar to rice paper rolls (will be in the next Foodie Bar cookbook).
