Share some yum!

We could barely contain ourselves when we started to hear the buzz about gluten-free, vegan Shirataki noodles (also called yam noodles or miracle noodles). And it turns out that they are also vegan AIP compliant!

Not only do they meet our dietary restrictions, but they can help us lose weight? This sounded too good to be true. The key to Shirataki noodles is their main ingredient, Glucomannan fiber.

We first heard of Glucomannan fiber from Dr. Oz when he touted it as a great way to assist in a healthy weight loss plan.  Glucomannan is a fiber that comes from the konjac plant, a plant grown largely in Japan. Because it is such a hearty, easily soluble fiber, it is used for treatment of, among other things, constipation, high cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes and weight loss.

Don't you just hate it when you are looking for a recipe, and you have to scroll through dozens of pages before you get to the recipe way down at the bottom of the page?
That's because they are trying to make money off you and Google requires it.

Not long after we first heard of them the popular website Hungry Girl started touting glucomannan-based noodles, Shirataki noodles, as a great alternative to pasta. Traditional Shirataki noodles are made solely from the konjac plant fiber and contain zero calories, zero carbs, zero gluten or animal products, and are high on soluble fibers.

You do have to be careful because some brands contain soy, which is no good if you are avoiding soy (such as if you are on the vegan AIP diet). These are the organic, vegan, gluten-free, vegan AIP compliant Shirataki noodles that we like. These also are basically odor-free, which some Miracle noodles are not.

Since the noodles are already soft, you can just drop them into soup, or boil them for a few minutes to have as spaghetti or fettucine. The spaghetti noodles are also ramen-like, so would be great for making homemade ramen noodles.

There are so many different ways that you can use these noodles, for example in our gluten-free, vegan chicken noodle soup, or a vegan, gluten-free Italian fettucine recipe, or even in a vegan mushroom stroganoff!

Have you tried Shirataki noodles? If so, let us know how you used them, and what you think of them!

1 thought on “Gluten-Free and Vegan AIP Compliant Shirataki Noodles: The Miracle Noodle

  1. We also love shirataki noodles in our home! Our favorites are the Miracle Noodle brand because they do not have any soy or tofu and these are calorie free. We make many stir frys using the veggies in the fridge and add seasonings to enhance the flavor the noodles pick up. They truly are great. I have found some of the greatest recipes on their Facebook page where the fans write in and share. Also like the variety in the shapes and sizes they have.
