Shirataki

Konnyaku Noodles

Shirataki is a form of thin, gelatinous noodle made from shredded konnyaku. Valued more for their texture and than their flavour, because they are so absorbent they make a great accompaniment to other ingredients such as tofu, vegetables and soy sauce, for instance in stir-fries or sukiyaki. With no fat, sugar or starch, they are a very healthy option for anyone counting the calories and are a superb source of natural fibre. Shirataki are normally packaged pre-cooked in liquid.
