Shirataki / Konnyaku (konjak) Recipes | Honest Japanese Cooking

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Introducing konyaku noodles.
(aka Shirataki or Konjak noodles)

Ramen is good, sushi is good, katsu is good.
Do people in Japan eat them everyday? No.

Today, I’m introducing a healthy ingredient, it comes in noodle type and block type.
Japan’s super low calorie noodles.
Less than 1/10 the carb of pasta.
Less than 1/20 the calories of pasta.

Possibly, one of the last secrets to Japanese people’s health. Don’t be fooled by all the menu that’s been successfully marketed overseas. We do eat healthier than what you see in anime.

Konyaku (konjac) is a super healthy food, used in Japanese cooking. Low calories and depending on how you cook it, it could become a life saver in your diet.

In UK you can buy it as a "bare baked noodles" 😜 but it is mostly clear transparent. Comes as "spaghetti" like yours or as rice, which I assume is save just in tiny pieces.
