  1. I had some today and they are very good and I am picky when it comes down to high carb food substitutes. Once I rinsed them off, and prepared them like I would regular spaghetti, they tasted good.

  2. Vons carries it. Its good. Dress it up with some pesto and shrimp cooked in coconut oil. Pretty yummy!!! I have also used arrabiata sauce with chicken sausage. 🙂

  3. Saw these the other day and decided to give them a try.  Picked up some marinated tofu as well and will be combining both with some pasta sauce for a snack tomorrow for lunch ^.^

  4. Walmart carries these where I live.

    Shiratake Noodles with Porcini Mushrooms and Sun-dried Tomatoes

    (serves one well or two modestly)

    1 pkg (8 oz) shiratake noodles
    1 pkg (1 oz) dried porcini mushrooms
    4-6 tsp. sun-dried tomato pieces
    12 oz hot water
    1-2 Tblsp. coconut oil

    Reconstitute porcini mushrooms in hot water for 20 minutes. While waiting, rinse noodles under cold running water.

    Strain mushrooms from water and set aside together with sun-dried tomatoes.

    Bring mushroom water to boil, and parboil noodles for two minutes. While waiting, heat skillet with oil, and fry mushrooms and tomatoes to softening (2-3 minutes).

    Add noodles to skillet, and toss with mushrooms and tomatoes. While this is going on, transfer mushroom water to another skillet, and boil off all but 2-3 tablespoons.

    Toss the noodles, mushrooms, and tomatoes in this concentrated mushroom water glaze and serve immediately.

    Hot peppers, or a non-vinegar based hot sauce can be added to taste, but don't over do it: the mushrooms and tomatoes have a delicate flavor.

    Almost all the calories come from the cooking oil: about 280 from 2 tablespoons, for a total of maybe 300 all together. This serves one person quite well.

  5. If you want to use these for weight loss here is the truth: In my opinion. these can only be a weekly "reward" meal because they are difficult to prepare. They are hard to find and expensive. Out of the bag they smell like a corpse (or formaldehyde). If you clean, boil, and fry them with a good sauce they taste wonderful!

  6. The only place I could find these was in the only asian market in my area. Different (Japanese ) brand, 14 oz bag for $2.50. They had 2 varieties, regular and with seaweed powder. None of the grocery stores, chain supermarkets or Walmart in my area has ever heard of this.
