Ok, I've gotten on the Shiratake bandwagon. Bought a few packets this afternoon. To those who don't know, they have about 5cals/100g and are mostly soluble fiber. They usually come wet-packed.
My idea for a first trial with them is to add them to a miso broth I've prepared and have some boiled eggs on the side. Once I get a gauge of how they work I might get more creative making soups and noodle salads and the like.
My questions (a quick search didn't yield much):
1 - any tips for cooking/preparing them? I understand I need to rinse them to get rid of the odd flavour they get from being packaged in water.
- how long do they need rinsing for
- how long should they be boiled for? Added to boiling water or in water that is slowly brought to the boil?
- anything else
2 - any particularly good recipes that you've discovered for them? Bonus points for approx macros
I will update the thread tomorrow with how I went and any recipe ideas I get.
