Many people are into Shirataki Noodles/Rice to help with weight loss, but I got into Miracle Noodles a couple years ago because I have issues with gluten. I’m not one to have high expectations when it comes to substitutes because they are so hit or miss. What I loved most about Miracle Noodles was the fact that it absorbed flavors really well. They also held up well in my Italian pasta dish, unlike rice pastas. While I was browsing my local health food store, I noticed Miracle Rice was two for $3.39. Not bad considering that’s usually the price of one bag.
I’m just as happy with the Miracle Rice as I am with the Miracle Noodles. It reminds me of Israeli couscous, but I don’t feel guilty or sick after eating it. Just like rice, there isn’t any flavor. The only difference is the size of the “rice” and the shape. Also, it smells really weird straight out of the bag. It smells kind of like a mushroom farm, but not as offensive. What a weird description, but I live a couple miles away from a mushroom farm, and it makes me gag when I drive by. Anyways, the smell goes away after you boil/blanche the rice. I’ve been eating my Miracle Rice with sauteed kale, garlic, and a hard boiled egg. I’m looking forward to making more dishes and expanding my horizons with this great substitute!
