Shirataki are high-fibre noodles which contain almost no calories, sugar or fat. They are made from the konnyaku (konjac ) roots, which are peeled, cooked, pounded, coagulated and then squeezed into noodle-shapes. Shirataki translates as ‘white waterfall’ – a suitable name for the clear, gelatinous noodles which contain 97% water. They have a pleasantly chewy texture, but little taste, so work best when simmered in a rich stock – containing perhaps ginger, soy or miso – which allows the shirataki noodles to take on the delicious flavours.
The shirataki noodles come packaged in water, so drain and rinse before using. They do not need cooking, but boiling for just a few minutes before using changes the texture slightly - some people prefer it like this. Each packet of shirataki noodles serves 1.
