This is one of my absolute favorite new recipes. A bag of kelp noodles is only about 20 calories! I made a delicious phad thai a few weeks ago and have had it once a week since then! The kelp noodles also make great salads or additions to any stir fry! Enjoy as much as I do. Even my husband loves it! A win all around.

I have a bag of kelp noodles at home waiting to be used up. Have you tried any other recipes using them?

I haven't tried any other recipes yet as I am obsessed with the Phad Thai right now. I have added tofu to one version and chicken to another.

I also have noticed kelp noodles coming around in restaurants more. Check out this blog post as it includes a picture of a kelp noodle salad I had when I was on vacation recently. It was delicious!

Never heard of Kelp noodles either! Interesting...I hope they aren't like those "Miracle noodles"...those are gross.

It looks delicious but I'm curious what they taste like-do they taste like a rice noodle? Interested in trying but not if they have a strange flavor :)

I've had Shirataki noodles but never Kelp Noodles. Very interesting.

I believe I've seen them both at the Korean grocery store. They are in the refrigerated aisle.

They taste nothing like the gross shiritaki noodles! No smell, not mushy. They are almost a bit crunchy. They don't have much of a flavor but take on whatever flavor you put in the sauce. For salad, if you rinse and cut them up and toss with a bit of lime, they taste like you have added a bean sprout almost?

I live in Canada and can find them in any health food store - like Planet Organic or Lifestyles.

I just found the kelp noodles at Whole Foods last weekend! I added them to some potstickers and goya (sp?) sauce from Trader Joes... it was ok. Last night I took the remainder and sauteed some chicken, then added the noodles and a little bbq sauce and heated it through and topped with diced onion... it was pretty good. Really looking forward to trying pad thai, thai basil chicken, and other recipes with these. Since they are seaweed I'm reminded of the cold seaweed salad that I love... Hoping to find a cold marrinade to try with them too!

Pad thai is my number one weakness! I will try this- thank you :)
