Perfect for a low carb diet
These are a great low carb alternative. I'm on a low carb diet and I just can't face eating a curry without rice....this is perfect. They are a bit stinky when you open them...hold your nose and rinse well in cold water then let them sit in a bowl of water with white wine vinegar for a few minutes. Rinse well again and warm in a frying pan..I added a knob of butter. I can definitely recommend them, they have a different texture to rice they feel a bit more like tiny pieces of pasta but you get used to it.
Amazing diet food. Basically no carbs,calories but provide but ok to a meal Neutral taste texture soft
Good Diet Product, Needs Flavor Adding
You have to be smart with this product, otherwise it won't impress. The 'fishy' smell washes straight off - it's not a problem. The noodles need lots of flavor, but once that's in place, they do the job fine. I throw a few spoonfuls into a cup-a-soup with seasoning for a super-fast savoury snack. It's not gourmet cuisine, but it props up a diet pretty well.
I Can Eat Risotto Again!
I have been waiting to find konjac rice in our local store for quite some time. We’ve just polished off a delicious ‘risotto’ made with this brand. Delicious and such a wonderful addition to a keto or gluten free diet. You MUST drain and rinse them really thoroughly to remove the fish like smell. But absolutely delighted with the results. I rinsed them through in a sieve under running water. Heated some butter that had wild mushrooms cooked in it. Added garlic purée, salt and pepper to taste, then the konjac rice. Stir fried this for a minute or two, added half a small tub of cream cheese and stirred until completely combined then added a handful of freshly grated Parmesan and some tarragon. Once fully combined served with the cooked mushrooms. Delicious! And the first risotto I’ve had in two years. Very happy. This is perfect for using with a flavoured base, alone it has no taste when rinsed properly. Don’t expect the same texture as real rice, but it’s a really nice change from cauliflower rice etc.
