    longrice! Holy crap, haven't heard that term in a dog's age! I grew up in Hawaii (on Kauai) and grew up on the stuff.

    I am loving kelp noodles -- great either cooked or raw .... my newest culinary discovery. I will def. be making this one. I've got a big smile on my face right now. Thanks so much for posting.

      This was so delicious (and easy)! Will definitely be making this one again.

          Looks awesome. One question though, where do you find kelp noodles?

            That does look good. I might have to make some soon.

            Asian market/grocery store.

              Not all Asian markets have kelp noodles, the Japanese oriented stores do but not the Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese or Filipino places

                I am so spoiled. A locally owned large grocery store two miles from my house has them. Can't hardly keep them on the shelves. (Did we mention they have zero carbs and zero calories and no flavor of their own?)

                  Also, a lot of raw foodists have clued into kelp noodles and eat the hell outta them, raw. (Which is why Chuck's Produce can't keep them on the shelves.) So any store in your area that caters to that crowd will definitely have them. My local Whole Food does not carry them. They will be in the refrigerated section.

                    Two things...

                    1) I keep reading the headline as "chicken licorice." o.O

                    2) Glad to see kelp noodles on the forum! My grocery started carrying them and I wasn't sure if I should buy them. I think I will give them a try.

                      My local one does, and it's in the ethnic aisle where you can find the nori and stuff.

                        Are kelp noodles like the shirataki/Miracle Noodle noodles?

                          Nah, all three are different.

                          Kelp noodles are kind of rubbery and crunchy, kind of like if you ate a seaweed salad at a Japanese restaurant. Except the kelp noodles we're talking about are more crunchy because they're thicker.

                          Shirataki noodles are made from konjac jelly. They have a jelly-like consistency and are also rubbery and chewy. These have almost no nutrition, but have some fiber and soak up the taste of soups, broth sauces, etc. quite well.

                          When people refer to miracle noodles, they mean the tofu shirataki noodles made by House brand of tofu. These are half tofu, half konjac noodles that are less rubbery, but are easier to eat with western, non-broth type sauces, such as alfredo.

                            darn, I have shirataki noodles-I was hoping they were the same. On to driving around town to find kelp noodles-those sound yummy! I've never had them.
