“I think of you every time I see those shirataki noodles in the store,” a fellow Weight Watcher told me a few weeks ago. Turns out that she doesn’t share my much-professed enjoyment of Tofu Shirataki Noodles.
Granted, if you try to eat shirataki noodles like a normal flour-based noodle, the texture will seem a little off: gummy, or slimy, or chewy. That’s why I stir-fry mine:
Quick Shirataki Stir-Fry
One 8 oz bag tofu shirataki noodles
8 oz imitation crab or frozen cocktail shrimp, thawed
1 cup frozen broccoli or stir-fry vegetable medley
1 Tbsp soy sauce
dash of fish sauce
sriracha (rooster) sauce, to taste
one egg (optional)
Combine ingredients in a non-stick pan and stir-fry until slightly browned.
