Halle-freakin-lujah, it’s a Miracle!

blackshirataki281Finally, a paleo-zone friendly, gluten and soy free pasta!

Some good friends (and new CrossFitter Jayne) just introduced me to Miracle Noodle. A calorie free, carb free pasta? Is it possible? Is it edible?? I took it home immediately and stir fried it with chicken, asparagus, and avocado. Not only was it palatable, it soaked up the flavors of the other ingredients and tasted as close to al dente as fake pasta can!

So, what is it exactly? It’s made from the root of the konjac plant, is primarily a soluble fiber, and well known in Japanese cuisine. Yes, it’s bland, somewhat soggy, and not “real” pasta, but it sure does the trick. You can find Shirataki Noodles on the Miracle Noodle site, your local Japanese market, or even some Trader Joe’s carry them.

Don’t take my word for it, though. Do your own research, try it out, and post your thoughts to comments!

  1. How much is it?

  2. May have to give these a try. We’re beginning our experiment at home with using gluten-free substitutes for some of the “forbidden” glutenous (is that a word?) items like pasta and tortillas. Will let you know how it goes.
