SHIRATAKI WHAT?

Shirataki noodles are made in many different sizes and shapes. My favorite is the fettuccini and rice variety. They are very low carb. The word “shirataki” means “white waterfall”, describing the appearance of these noodles.

THEY’RE MADE OF WHAT?

When I first heard of shirataki noodles I assumed they were made out of Shirataki mushrooms but they are not. Shirataki noodles are made from the konjac yam (devil’s tongue yam or elephant yam). Shirataki noodles are thin, translucent, gelatinous traditional Japanese noodles.

These Keto Shirataki Noodles are mostly made of a water-soluble dietary fiber water called clucomannan and water.

TASTE

Once rinsed, Shirataki noodles have little flavor of their own and are best marinated. Shirataki noodles and rice are very low in carbohydrates in calories. These low carbohydrate and calorie properties make the Shirataki noodle very attractive to low carb keto dieters.

These noodles work well with many different cuisines however my favorite way to make them is with an Asian flavoring. I have used these noodles before in my Spicy Shirataki Noodles with Lime and Cilantro sauce.

Keto Chinese food

Most Chinese food plays along with the flavor profile of something sweet and something salty. Something sweet usually means sugar. Sugar means pain and inflammation in my body due to my autoimmune (ra). There are no added sugars in this recipe and my other Chinese Asian inspired recipes. Try out these delicious Keto Shirataki noodles with Spicy Ketchup Chicken , Fried Cauliflower Rice , Salty and Sweet Chicken or Spicy Shirataki Noodles with Lime and Cilantro sauce. for a Keto Chinese food party without having a carb up!
