    Miracle Noodles

    Shop Now
    Does anyone eat this things? A friend gave me a package of them and tonight I made a stir fry with ground lamb, onions, kale and goat cheese. At the end, I threw these noodles in. I was surprised at how good they were. I felt like I ate a pretty carby meal but they have no carbs and no calories. I searched on the internet and couldn't find out anything bad about them. Are these things really acceptable on a primal diet?

    I know quite a few people on here who eat them. They're harmless -- mostly just vegetable fiber if I remember correctly. I personally have never grown to like them -- something about the texture -- but if you like them, have at them!

    I heard that the texture is really bad too, and first I steamed them and they did taste pretty bad. But then I stir fryed them with the rest of the meal and it totally changed the texture and they were completely not rubbery and tasted more like regular pasta.

    Ooh, thanks! I'll have to try that.

    If you open the bag expecting a spaghetti substitute you'll be disappointed but they work pretty well in soups and stews.

    I had heard bad things about the smell and taste here, but a few days ago I tried a dish a paleo friend had made with them and I really liked it. Reminded me of very firm ramen noodles.

    I can tell you right now that it pairs horribly with cheese.

    Meh. They're okay. Kelp Noodles are better. Spaghetti squash, green beans, mushrooms, or zucchini strips better still.

    The konjac root noodles ? It is not you that you feed when you eat them but your gut bacteria. That's the only reason why you would eat them. Well prepared, they are great to add consistence to a broth or soup. But that's about it. You can dry-fry them for like 8-10mn (after you washed them carefully to remove the weirdo smell), then you add them to a broth or soup or sauce of your choice that contains the nutrition for YOU. The noodles will feed the good bacteria further down and will make you sleep better
