5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book, 19 Nov 2013

Shirataki noodles are a great product for dieters. They don't taste like noodles but with a nice sauce or in a stir fry they are a good way to fill up without the calories. They are really quick to make. I've found the best way to cook them is to rinse thoroughly with cold water, then with boiling water and finally microwave them for one minute before adding them to stir fry/pasta sauce. Personally I tend to buy shirataki noodles from a local Japanese supermarket where they are a bit cheaper but if you don't have one near you then Slim Noodles are exactly the same product.
My Secret: A PostSecret Book by Frank Warren
