My family refused to eat them after they smelled the package as I opened it. I didn't care for the texture of these noodles.After eating some, I felt bloated and gassy! Some things not worth 0 calories.

I just bought them and tried them yesterday. They're at one of our international markets (GrandMart) for $1.49 for 8 ounce package. Much cheaper than ordering online.
As near as I can tell, there are 2 varieties of miracles noodles. One is all elephant yam (not related to yam/sweet potato) and one is yam and tofu. The ones with tofu have 20 calories per 4 ounce serving; the ones with all yam have zero. Both have zero cholesterol. The tofu ones have 3 g of carbs.
The instructions were to rinse well (the water they're packed in has a strong odor) and then parboil in water for 3 minutes.
We ate the angel hair last night. I rinsed well, parboiled for 90 seconds and then threw them into a sizzling skillet to get browned a bit.
They were very chewy, so next time, I'll parboil the full amount. I didn't know how they'd hold up with the stir frying action. They had zero flavor and I kept sniffing to detect the odor you rinse off. I couldn't smell it but this distracted my enjoyment.
I had made a simple tomato sauce to top them off.
My husband didn't know anything other than these were zero cholesterol noodles. He ate them all with gusto.
I will be trying them with stronger flavored sauces and in soups.
One of my stepdaughters is gluten-free and these are also gulten-free. I'll be getting her some of these to try.
Life needs balance

So i purchased miracle noodles with 0 calories and 0 carbs. They are not bad. Anyone have any recipe ideas for them or have a preferred way of making them that tastes better than another. I new to these and bought the variety box so i have the rice and the noodles.
