SOLD OUT. 6-count Passover Miracle Noodles for $20.68 on Amazon ($3.45 per bag)

These sold out in just a few hours when I posted them last week, but they're back!  They will ship on 3/28/15, just in time for Pesach.


We just ordered this for Pesach.  Amazon has got this 6-pack of Miracle Noodle Angel Hair Pasta (kosher for Passover, OU-P) for $20.68 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping, which works out to $3.45 per 7 oz. bag.

Shirataki pasta is made with something called konnyaku flour, which isn't flour at all, and comes from a weird kind of Japanese potato.  It has no soy, gluten, cholesterol or calories.  It's definitely an acquired taste, as the texture is different from normal pasta, but it's easy to get used to.  My husband, a real meat-n-potatoes guy, ate shirataki noodles all through his diet (he lost a ton of weight) instead of regular pasta, and they really grew on him.  They basically absorb the flavor of whatever soup they are in.  In a holiday laden with all kinds of stomach-curdling starch (hello 3,000 matzoh balls), these noodles are going to be a welcome addition.  They are also compatible with gluten-free diets, so if you're having GF guests as we are, these will work in their soup.  And if you're watching your weight (who isn't?), these are awesome, as they have less than 5 calories per bag.  You could probably burn that off by chewing.

This is absolutely crucial:  make sure you rinse these noodles with cold water in a colander before eating them.  It gets rid of a sort of yucky shirataki pre-taste.  I don't recommend baking with shirataki noodles because of the different texture, but I'll admit that I've never tried it, so if you are culinarily adventurous, here's a recipe for Sweet Shirataki Noodle Pudding with Apples and Almonds for Pesach.
  • Contains 6 -7 ounce bags
  • Wheat, soy and gluten free, kosher for Passover
  • Made of naturally water soluble fiber with no fat, sugar or starch
  • Works well with all major weight loss plans, paleo friendly, great for type II diabetics, celiac and people with high cholesterol
  • Easy to prepare and absorbs the favor of any soup, dish or sauce
