Shiratake Noodles

July 27th, 2010 — 4:04pm

Shiratke noodle are suddenly everywhere. First I read about them in a NY Times piece on Lisa Lillien, aka Hungry Girl. Then, someone at work mentioned them. Then a friend told me about them.

So I bought some. After rinsing them to get rid of the fishy smell, then frying them in a bit of olive oil, and topping with some homemade pesto, I can honestly say they’re merely edible. A vehicle for a sauce maybe, an interesting enough texture, but my taste buds would never confuse it with real pasta.

I’ll just stick to the real thing. I’d rather eat less, and enjoy more.

    I just found your blog after reading your article in Yoga Journal this month. I’ve preordered your book and am looking forward to it – so thought I’d explore your blog a bit. This post made me laugh out loud – it’s exactly how I feel about the Shiratake Noodles! yuck! Not worth saving some calories to sacrifice flavor.
