    Shiratake noodle recipes

    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.

    Cooking them actually doesn't change them that much, so it doesn't matter how long you boil them. Basically you can use them in any pasta recipe you'd use for normal pasta- any sort of sauce, meat/cheese/other add-ins, etc. Not going to get the same taste no matter what you do to them, but they can be decent with a really good sauce and what not. I used to eat them a lot and would generally just drown them in ragu or something similar.

    Get a large bowl, throw in some cooked large peeled shrimp, cooked cut squid, diced mango, lemon juice to taste, fish sauce, corriander leaves, chopped chilli.

    Mixed them up and chow down!

    Sometimes i add in some cooked chicken breast or fish.
    Love the spiciness and the tang of the lemon juice!

    Cheers!

    Ok, as promised, the results from my experiment -

    I began boiling some eggs.
    I got one of my packets of noodles (180g) and opened it. They do smell bad out of the packet. Used the time while the eggs were boiling to wash the noodles. First under running water for a bit, then sat them in a fair bit of cold water and just ripped at them with my hands. After draining the water the smell was gone (thankfully). Sat them in a bowl, added the water from the (now boiled) eggs and put in two servings of the miso mix I had. Stirred it and let rest while I peeled the eggs.
    Added the eggs to the mix for a relatively appetising looking and smelling miso/egg ramen concoction.

    It tasted good. The noodles, even washed, have a sort of rubbery smell that I can't see going with spag-bol etc but in miso it worked just fine. Also, giving them 5-10 minutes to absorb the flavours of the broth definitely helped. Any flavour the noodles had inherently was undetectable beneath the miso flavour and it certainly added plenty of body to an otherwise small meal.

    I'll add a pic of what it looked like ASAP, but macros were:

    240cal - 19.5p 8c 13.2f

    EDIT - miso was Miko Brand Instant Miso - 2 packets

    My favorite is to fry up some shrimp, put in the noodles, and dump some alfredo sauce on the whole thing.

    Here's how the miso turned out. Very happy with it. I'll try some other ideas over the next few days, but I'd recommend this one for starters.

    It's on my list tomorrow night, I'll post some pics. I'm going vegetable stir fry... with the garlic/soy, etc.. sauce.. chicken breast, brown rice, and those noodles. On the package it says to clean good, then boil for 1 minute, then let dry, then put in for absorbing the flavor, etc..

    ew...Something that passes through the system without having any energy released from it just seems wrong. In my mind that means it clearly isn't meant to be eaten. Hunger is largely psychological, so I would never resort to eating these. different strokes though.

    I've tried these things before. I thought they would help me get really full and satisfied during my cutting diet. I made them two times. Mixed them with some cut up chicken breast and spaghetti sauce. The noodles really have no taste. But the texture was kind of disturbing. The meal was really filling, but eating the noodles felt like a chore. After making that recipe twice I haven't eaten them since. Sucks because I still have 4 bags left, and I think I paid 5 or 6 dollars a bag. Maybe I'll try them again with a different recipe some day. But I'm very hesitent to do it.

    Many things pass through the system with no energy released, including, but certainly not limited to water, fiber, vitamins, minerals, etc.

    I got mine in my local asian food supermarket. Save yourself some time and skip the normal noodle section, they'll be being kept in the fridge unless you find some that aren't wet-packed.

    I think a common brand is Miracle (if you are from the US), but mine were by some odd Asian company with english translations of everything added to the labels as stickers.

    You can find these in major chain grocery stores. I usually see them near the organic produce section, in the same spot as the tofu. They will be refrigerated

    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.
    Go to www.hungry-girl.com and do a search. You'll find TONS of recipes, tips for using them, and macros.

    Came in to post this! I eat them here and there, if I'm really counting calories, and I found that boiling them in chicken stock/broth (~ 5 min) is the by far the best way to get rid of the weird smell

    Ok i am disappointed with these noodles but not for the reason you think. I think they taste fine. I ate 2 entire packs to see how they would affect my digestive system. I thought they were supposed to make you really full and also ahem, speed up your lower digestive system. I didn't experience either of these effects! I wasn't necessarily looking for the second effect (i get plenty of fiber from other ways), i was more just curious. But i am definitely disappointed that they didn't make me full. In fact i ate 1 pack and then i went for a run...felt fine...then ate another pack...still didn't feel any fuller than i normally do with dinner.

    I add a bag of their miracle rice to the basmati rice that I make with chicken or beef broth. It definitely ads volume to my food and I feel more full on my cut. Though if you look at other asian grocer website there are other brands of these types of noodles that taste much better. Some have more fiber and slightly different sizes and textures.

    I also like adding the regular noodles to sour soup bases with dried seaweed for nice so the broth and noodles have solid flavor. I don't mind the noodles and fishyness scent of the noodles because of eating and growing up with an asian/filipino culture.

    Interesting....I havent heard of either of these effects...I just eat them when I want a huge bowl of pasta for 40 calories...they really just act as a vessel for whatever I mix them with. Theyre filling, but no more than anything else in that quantity...

    They taste like however you flavor them because they don't have a taste, it's more of a texture if anything.

    I eat them with steak, stir fry with peppers, brocolli. Just about anything. You can add miso, fish sauce, beef or chicken broth and they will have that type of flavor. Or add basil, mint, leaf, whatever.

    I drain/rinse them in cold water prior to boiling them.

    You can get them at the Asian markets or your local Safeway and Lucky's in the refrigerated section near tofu items. Never bought them online.

    Tried these out. They aren't too bad, I will buy likely again. I put them in some homemade miso soup and also a spiced beef broth which wasn't very filling as the soups were rather thin. I'm going to try a spaghetti bake or just plain ol sauce with meat and cheese. They didn't smell as horrid as people seemed to make out, reminded me faintly of fish which went away after rinsing and boiling. $2.50/lb at my local asian market.
