when you stir fry the shirataki noodles, it is not as chewy, and the flavor gets absorbed well. after trying many different brands, i found Shirakiku brand (see below for picture of the packaging) to be the best noodle for clara… it is not as chewy as others. These can be found in Japanese stores.
1/2 pack (85g) Shirataki noodles (Shirakiku brand preferred)
1/2t soy sauce
1t sesame oil
1/4t fresh ground sesame seeds
pinch fresh ground pepper
(optional: add shiitake mushroom, spinach, and/or julienned carrots – best if stir fried individually with sesame oil and a pinch of salt before adding to the noodle)
Rinse Shirataki noodles thoroughly in cold running water. Boil 1 cup of water in a small pan. When the water starts to boil, add the noodles and boil for 30 sec -1 min (please see the packaging for directions). Drain and rinse with cold water. Set aside.
heat 1t of sesame oil in a pan. stir fry the noodle (if you are using mushroom and carrots, sautee these first, then add noodle) and season with soy sauce, trivia, sesame seeds, and ground pepper.
