We prepared our test noodles with a simple basic sauce of organic Soy Sauce, dash of organic peanut oil, a light seasoning touch of organic agave syrup and organic molasses.
You can use any sauce, broth or seasonings at all with these noodles.
We have used these types of noodles for years and were aware of their filling qualities, their excellent ability to absorb natural flavors and their inexpensive cost.
Amazing and Awesome
We believe that these noodles could be the ONE food dieters have been looking for to satisfy that strong and persistent need for delicious pasta. Many people who are trying to cut calories and lose weight will find these noodles absolutely delicious and filling.
I did, and appreciated that nice feeling of satiation. Zero calories? Unbelievable but true.
Reason? They're filling without side effects and extremely low in calories. They are extremely versatile can be prepared myriad delicious ways. These noodles have withstood the test of time having an ancient history centuries old.
When prepared properly, one serving can fill you up without filling you out.
In addition, they have a nice noodle texture which can be quite satisfying (albeit a trifle different than ordinary spaghetti), all for virtually no calories except for the seasonings and additions.
"Felt Good After Eating"
Another interesting quality is that these noodles seem to have extremely low allergenic characteristics.
Some of us have sensitive or compromised systems. None of us have had even an inkling of a reaction. We've always felt good after eating.
We have reacted to almost every other type of flour, grain or starch "noodle."
What are these "Miracle Noodles?"
Miracle Noodles are "naturally derived" noodles are made from a very special Japanese yam. Some varieties are made from agar-agar, a sea vegetable derivative. These are often called "KELP NOODLES." Alone, they have very little flavor. But as a base for a noodle dish, they can be supremely delicious. Any seasonings or spices that you use are easily absorbed.
These noodles are a Japanese staple and truly are extremely low in calories.
Alone, they have minimal nutrition as they are not supplemented with vitamins and minerals as are other noodle products.
Some have said that they are purifying. However, this has not been substantiated with any scientific experimentation that we are aware of.
We do know that we feel pleasantly satiated without loss of energy or clarity of mind after eating. We now consider them an invaluable addition to our core list of staples.

For people who love noodles yet are calorie conscious, this vegetable-derived noodle is a true treasure of a find.
Is there anyone who doesn't love noodles? We ourselves could live on pasta. But, not our waistlines. So, using these instead of wheat or high starch noodles is a wonderful way to reduce calories yet enjoy "pasta."

Ito Konnyaku - Konjac Cut Into Noodle-like Strips
Simple Basic DELICIOUS Recipe
With our sauce, we were full for a major portion of the day. However, if you add vegetables and your own seasonings, you will probably do just as well if not better.
We were experimenting and thus didn't do anything too fancy.
1 package Noodle 2 tsp. organic peanut oil (you can use organic fresh pressed vegetable oil or palm oil) 1 tsp. dark agave syrup and/or (adds a delicate body and flavor) 1/2 tsp. organic molasses or organic maple syrup 2 tsp. organic soy sauce
Heat pan, add peanut oil, then soysauce and syrup or molasses, stir and simmer lightly. Add heated noodles, stir and serve.
All types of these noodles have very little flavor on their own, so they pick up your broth and seasonings exceptionally well.
If you prefix them for lunch with vegetables and other goodies, you should be fine until supper. The calories are extremely low.

SWEET NOODLE PUDDING (KUGEL) RECIPE
Here is a delicious recipe sent to Miracle Noodle from Phyllis in Connecticut that would be perfect addition for a holiday meal or anytime.
3 bags angel hair Miracle Noodles, rinsed and drained well
1 lb. part skim ricotta cheese
6 eggs(egg whites can be used)
1/2 c splenda
cinnamon to taste (1 - 2 tsp is good for me!)
1 c dried fruit (of your choice) peaches, nectarines, cherries,
plums, pluots, etc.
(they can be mixed in your choice of combinations or you can use one type)
1 c roasted almonds, ground in food processor
While in colander, cut noodles with sharp knife or food scissors to
make them easier to mix with other ingredients.
Place all ingredients in large bowl and mix well with wooden spoon until very well blended.
Pour into well oiled casserole dish (I use canola oil). Make sure
casserole dish is large enough for kugel to.expand (and make room for topping, to follow).
Bake for approx 1 hour to 1 1/4 hours until brown and bubbly.
Take out of oven and add one of the following:
Large jar of no sugar added jelly (like Polaner All-Fruit) or
No sugar added fruit cocktail or peaches; or
1 Jar of no sugar added preserves.
(I try to stay with the similar flavors in and on the kugel)
(For example: dried cherries in kugel, black cherry All Fruit on top; or dried peaches, and, nectarines in kugel, and SF peaches with juice on top).
Spread topping all over top of kugel, then place back in oven for approx. 15 minutes or until bubbly, then serve.
NO ONE WILL EVER KNOW YOU DIDN’T USE “EGG” NOODLES!!!

Spaghettata - Seafood (Tuna) Spaghetti with Garlic and Oil
This ultra-quick dish is a delicious variation on the classic late-night Roman staple, spaghettata (Spaghetti with Garlic and Oil) that can be thrown together from ingredients you may normally keep in your pantry and fridge.
Preparation time: five minutes
Cooking time: five minutes
1 bag Miracle Noodles angel hair, spaghetti or linguini
1 6- or 7-ounce can or jar of tuna in olive oil (preferably Italian tuna in extra virgin oil, but supermarket brands like Progresso or Genova are fine. Solid or chunk light tuna is tastier than solid white, which tends to be dry.)
Chopped or pressed garlic to taste—1 tsp to 2 tbsps (fresh is best, but chopped garlic from a jar is fine)
½ to 1 cup chopped fresh parsley leaves (or if you must, 2-3 tbsps of dried chopped parsley)
1 tbsp capers (optional)
Black pepper or hot red pepper flakes to taste
Extra virgin olive oil or lemon flavored olive oil (optional)
Salt to taste
1. Prepare the Miracle Noodles according to package directions.
2. Open the tuna can and drain the olive oil from the can into a sauté or frying pan. Put the tuna in a bowl and flake it with a fork.
3. Add chopped garlic to the pan and stir over medium heat until golden. Add parsley and capers; stir until parsley begins to wilt. Stir in the black or red pepper.
4. Add a splash (about ½ to 1 tbsp) of extra virgin olive oil or, preferably, lemon-infused olive oil (sometimes called citron oil), then add the flaked tuna, stirring for a minute or two until heated. If the pan seems dry, add a bit more oil.
5. Taste for salt and add a pinch if needed. The tuna and the capers are salty, so you won’t need much—and if you have used capers preserved in salt, you can probably omit it.
6. Toss with Miracle Noodles in a bowl, or add the noodles to the pan and toss over low heat. Serve immediately.
For a one-pot, highly nutritious meal, increase the amount of garlic and omit the parsley. Instead, add ½ to 1 bunch of chopped raw kale, Swiss chard or spinach (with stems removed) in step 3; it will take a minute or two longer to wilt than the parsley. A shake or two of hot red pepper flakes and lemon-flavored oil are particularly good with these greens. (My preference is for the chard or kale, which have a milder taste that blends well with the tuna.)
Or, add cut-up green beans, lightly steamed and drained, to the pan with the parsley. (Lemon-flavored oil really adds to this version).
For a more piquant flavor, add 1 or 2 tbsps chopped sun-dried tomatoes along with the parsley, and omit the lemon olive oil.
