Greetings and Happy New Year! I discovered shirataki noodles from a book entitled “Wheat Belly Cookbook” by William Davis, MD. A friend of mine made a wild rice soup recipe from it that was low in carbs and delicious so I bought the book and read about shirataki noodles. Shirataki is made from the root of a plant called the Konnyaku Imo. It is virtually free of calories and carbs. So, we ordered some online….”linguine” “rice” and “angel hair” shirataki. We made the “linguine” with home made spaghetti sauce and I was not too impressed. They are ok but have a rather odd texture. I think the “linguine” is too chewy so we will try the “rice” next and will let you know what we think. In the meantime, if you’d like to find out more, check out miraclenoodle.com.
The “Wheat Belly Cookbook” is very interesting reading and Dr. Davis is obviously against ALL THINGS WHEAT! There appear to be some good recipes and when we try some of them, will let you know how they taste. I already know the wild rice soup is delicious and I made cheeseburger soup which was ok…its base is cauliflower! Till next time, have a happy, healthy low carb weekend! Melanie
