I dry-fried a package of tofu shirataki noodles (on "HIGH" in a non-stick pan sprayed with cooking spray), lowered the heat to medium, then added a diced, leftover 3 oz boneless skinless chicken breast and 2 cups of crushed tomatoes-- along with an obscene amount of garlic and basil.

I let it all simmer for about 20 minutes and ended up with over a POUND of lip-smacking, delicious food that only had 236 calories!

I *love* tofu shirataki noodles and eat them at least once per day. If you rinse them well and dry-fry them, as I described, they taste fantastic.

This sorta looks like what I had for lunch...were your crushed tomatoes low sodium? I realized the ones I used definitely added crazy sodium..argh...

This is a great tip! I love love love shirataki noodles, too. I have been using several paper towels to dry them, and then I microwave them. But I will definitely try this "dry fry" technique! I don't understand people who say they are disgusting.

OMG this looks amazing! I will have to try it.

Wow, that looks delish. Doubt I can get those noodles around here, though. Live in the boonies. They don't even know what 'sprouted grain' bread is. Sheesh! Will have to make my own soon. *rolls eyes*

I had the same problem. The only place that had them anywhere near me was Whole Foods, but they were out of them every time I went. So I ordered them online--for a better price, too. I highly recommend them. http://www.house-foods.com/Tofu/tofu_shirataki.aspx

They keep for a long time in the fridge, so I got a variety pack. :-)

Bump is a way to keep track of a thread you want to follow. It makes it easier to find it at a later time without having to search the boards for the topic. smile

I think it moves the messages up or something in the forum??? I've seen it before on another group forum I am part of. But I'm probably wrong.

Ok, I was wrong! Now how do we keep track of it?

Do they come cold shipped? Or do they have to stay cold?

Go to your profile page & in the bottom left corner it will show your recent posts; just click on the see all tab & they will come up. If you have commented or 'bumped' the post, it will be there for you to find it. Hope this helps!! smile

I am not a fan of tofu but then again I have not had it in years! This looks really good so I'm going to give these noodles a try!
