I stocked up on these a while back when Mitsuwa was having a sale on these. I have never tried these before, but they ARE Hungry Girl approved so I kind of hoarded a bit too much. The noodles held up pretty well while rinsing and boiling. I DID buy the spaghetti version (they have angel hair and fettuccine too) so I made spaghetti out of it. Everything looked really good, I even sprinkled a little parmesan cheese on top to make it more authentic. Now for the taste test. Maybe I need a better recipe for these noodles because I felt that my dish came out rather bland. The texture of the noodles were a bit wired (a little rubbery) for my taste as well. I had a hard time eating it and gave up 1/3 of the way. T_T to wasted food. Any creative suggestions as to how to make these noodles more flavorful? The stats of these Shirataki Tofu Noodles are unbeatable. Only 20 calories per serving. Each pouch is 2 servings so even if you decide to eat the whole bag, that will only cost you 40 calories. I don’t know what it is about these noodles, but I felt really full after only eating 1/3 of it (I used the entire pouch). Magic noodles? Aside from being one 20 calories per serving, they have 0.5 grams of fat, 2 grams of fiber, and 1 gram of protein. Great substitute for high calorie pasta if you can deal with the taste and texture of these noodles. With stats like these, you can bet I will be giving these another try, after all, I still have 3 bags of it sitting in my fridge. I think I’m going to try a stir fry next. Wish me luck!
