Calorie Free Noodles?

Yes...kind of
These tasty Shiratake noodles are made from the root of a plant called Konnyaku Imo. The noodles are from the soluble fiber source of the plant known as Glucomannan. They take on flavors of any sauce or dish you make.  

One should definitely, definitely follow package directions; Rinse, heat/boil, rinse, pat dry and boil in sauce for a bit. These steps are a must-otherwise, they dont taste as amazing.

Yes, they are pale looking, almost anemic! But a great sources of fiber!

Saute onions, leeks or scallions with any leftover protein source (grilled pork loin here, about 1 cup or so), using olive oil or canola oil (2 tsp.? or so).
Add dry noodles to pan and saute for a few minutes; this will dry the noodles out a bit (a good thing). Add sauce and heat cook for a few minutes.
Serve with shredded Parmesan or Fancy Swiss, or any other cheese you like; all cheese is welcomed!

Yup, its the close up! Makes 1 large 373kcal portion, with 26 grams protein, 22 grams of carbs, 22 grams of

monounsaturated fat (hey...just use less oil if this scares you..or love the good fats!),
