How To Cook & Like Shirataki Noodles


Step 1Drain the noodles. Discard all of the water from the package. Place the noodles in a large sieve and rinse well under running water.

Step 2Transfer into a pot with boiling water and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. This step is important for removing the unpleasant odor. (Also, adding a dash of vinegar helps!)

Step 3Drain the noodles and place on a hot pan without any grease or liquids. Fry over a medium-high heat for about 10 minutes. There will be a lot of steam and that's what you want to achieve. Remove as much water as possible without drying them out. If they become too dry, they will significantly reduce in size. Using tongs, you'll need to turn the noodles to avoid that. This step is important for their texture.

Step 4When done, place in a container and keep in the fridge for up to a week. Use in stir-fries, cook is sauces, gravies or add your favorite seasonings to boost the flavor.
