Ingredients For These Garlic Butter Shirataki Noodles

You will need a few ingredients that are easy to find to create this simple garlic butter shirataki noodles recipe. Here is everything you need:

Garlic Butter Shirataki Noodles Ingredients
  • Shirataki Noodles
  • Unsalted Butter – you can also use salted butter, but you must be careful with the amount of salt you use.
  • Garlic – since shirataki noodles have no taste, I recommend using fresh garlic for an intense flavor.
  • Parmesan Cheese – I used freshly grated parmesan cheese for the best flavor. Also good is pre-shredded parmesan.
  • Heavy Cream – Use heavy cream to make a rich and tasty sauce that naturally thickens the sauce.
  • Chicken Broth – You might want to use a low-sodium chicken broth because you’re using parmesan cheese, which is a salty ingredient. 
  • Salt&Pepper – to taste.

How To Make These Delicious Garlic Butter Shirataki Noodles

These garlic butter shirataki noodles are so easy to make that they can be the perfect choice for those busy days. 

  1. Start by opening the package of shirataki noodles with scissors. Put them into a  colander, trying to ignore the little fishy odor; it will wash/cook away. Rinse the noodles for one minute under cold running water.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to a boil.
  3. After rinsing the noodles, add them to the boiling water and cook them for five minutes.
  4. After five minutes, return the cooked noodles to the colander and drain thoroughly.
  5. Make the sauce. Add the butter to the pan, then the chopped garlic, and cook for two minutes.
  6. Then add the heavy cream and chicken broth and cook until it starts to boil. 
  7. When it starts to boil, reduce the heat to low, add the parmesan cheese and the rest of the ingredients and cook the sauce for another two minutes or until it reaches the desired consistency.
  8. When the sauce is ready, add the noodles and mix until they are completely covered. 
  9. Garnish with fresh parsley and parmesan cheese, and enjoy!!

How Do Shirataki Noodles Taste Like?

Konjac Shirataki has no particular taste; its taste is given just by the sauce chosen to season them.

Why Do Shirataki Noodles Smell Like Fish?

Although pure glucomannan fiber has no flavor, raw Konjac root flour has a fishy odor, and that’s why Shirataki noodles have a fishy odor. 

Are Shirataki Noodles Healthy?

Yes, due to its glucomannan content, Shirataki noodles have become a favorite food of dieters.

Glucomannan plays an active role in weight loss, helps slow digestion, and prolongs the feeling of satiety. In addition, replacing one meal a day with noodles or Shirataki rice will significantly increase your fiber intake and reduce your total caloric intake. (2*)
