Tofu shirataki noodles


A Review...

They have a recipe for them in the HG cookbook. The flavor was good, I just couldn't get past the texture...which is really too bad, b/c the ENTIRE bag is only 20 calories. Can you believe it? Really, they tasted fine, just a little too chewy and hmmm...how do I put it...I guess slimy? Does that make sense?
Anyway, I know others who swear by these so this is just my personal opinion. I guess I will have to stick to the higher points whole wheat noodles...less chew and more flavor. Unless, any of you guys have better ideas.

Yeah, I think if I had not KNOWN that they were tofu I would have been fine as well. I have this horrible mental block about things and then texture plays a big part...the good news is that my dh had no clue what it was and really liked it! So there you have it!

I'll have to give them a shot. For 20 calories I might be able to choke them down!

I've been wondering about these. I see them at Safeway all the itme but the fact that they come in water freakes me out. They just look weird. Like soggy worms or something. I pick them up everytime I see them to see if I think I cna do it and so far, no such luck. Your texture description confirms it form me. I do not wantoverly chewy slomy noodles. The thought alone makes me queesy. Thanks for posting about them, I think I would feel the same way you do.

i prefer the whole wheat noodles! we have eaten these a few times and they are okay if you wash them really well but well, they don't really satisfy the pasta craving.
