Kayelle, you can probably find them in your local grocery store. Market Basket by us has them in the produce section, right in the same area that they sell fresh won ton wrappers and such. I bought them when they had them on sale for something like 2/$3. Didn't like them when we had them in something like a lo mein dish. I started to poke around online to see what I could find about them, just in case I wanted to try again. Your post made me poke a little more. Found an article that might be of interest to you: How To Cook & Like Shirataki Noodles | The KetoDiet Blog

Great minds running in the same track CG!! I just finished reading it when I came back here. We must have been reading there at the same time.

They might be at our local grocery, I'll have the SC look for them. I ordered 8 pks from Jet.com and they should be here in two days. When I was watching the video from James last night I was drooling when he added the noodles. Now I can do that! Wooo Hooo!!

I've been using these for quite a while now - just not very often. I've never been a big pasta eater, so I haven't missed noodles all that much. I do like them in Asian cuisine, though.

The miracle noodles work wonderfully for Pad Thai or Ramen type dishes.

Don't forget to cut them babies! If you try twirling just one strand around your fork it ends up being almost too big to fit into your mouth. ;) Sauce doesn't stick to these noodles like it does with flour-based noodles but they add the perfect touch of authenticity under curry & stir fries.

I have been trying them in several dishes. They do have a very earthy/bland taste. Noodles/Pasta has been something I have really missed on low carbing. These are not great tasting but they fill the void. Kayelle - please post your evaluation once you have tried them. Oh yea - the pack I get from Walmart (may be some of the problem) requires them to be washed to get rid of some of the earthy smell.

I used them in an Asian stir fry tonight. I learned on a low carb blog they must be treated properly for good results.

I had read about the smell. When I opened them into a colander I could smell something unpleasantly fishy and after about 3 minutes of rinsing under cold water, I boiled them in fresh water for 2 minutes as directed, and then dried them out completely in a dry wok, and set it aside. Did all that in the wok I'd be using for the stir fry, so it was no big deal. I added them to the velveted chicken and veggie stir fry and they added an unusual dimension I'd been missing. My conclusion is they are a great guilt free food if prepared properly.
Now I'm wondering about their use in Linguini and Clam sauce, guilt free.

We haven't had any activity on this thread for a few months now, so I thought I'd just jump in here. Yes, I'm still doing keto.

Today I had a rare dessert craving. I found this recipe online for keto blueberry-lemon muffins. I had no lemons, but I had everything else. I ended up adding about a teaspoon of vanilla extract. I also used more sweetener than the recipe called for. They came out great, and I found it really satisfied my sweet tooth. It's a winner!

Those look good!

I am still on my journey, finding it hard to control eating while at work. Food keeps me awake...
