Two Popular Methods for Preparing and Cooking Skinny Noodles Shirataki

Veggie Stir Fry with Shirataki Noodles

Pan Fry Method - Recommended by weight loss and healthy lifestyle blogger Roni Noone of and!

  • After you drain and rinse the noodles thoroughly, adding 1-2 tablespoons of vinegar to the rinse water if desired, pat them dry with a clean paper towel.
  • Cut them to a shorter length if you like.
  • Toss them into a non-stick skillet. (If desired, you can spray the pan with non-stick cooking spray first.)
  • Using tongs, stir and separate the shirataki noodles over medium-high heat for 2-3 minutes until they "squeak."
Pan frying the noodles removes most of the moisture and the gummy texture some dislike. Now toss with your favorite sauce. Many shirataki fans prefer cheese-based or Asian-style sauces over those that are tomato-based.

Darlene's Microwave Method
- As seen on our Facebook page!

Skinny Noodles fan Darlene prefers her own microwave method of preparation over the pan fry method above. She says it makes them "REALLY appealing." Give it a try!

  • Rinse Skinny Noodles, putting 1-2 drops of vinegar over them when you're rinsing them.
  • Then turn them onto a plate with paper towels on them. This just helps get even more water from them.
  • Then take the paper towel away and spread them on a plate as thin as possible.
  • Then, microwave for as much as 1-1/2 minutes. Cook about 45 seconds, take them out, stir them around, and put back in.
  • Remove from microwave and serve as desired.
