Raw food noodles... Oh my god, raw foodies...
You have probably heard about raw food noodles. I mean, real raw food noodles -- (not just zucchini or squash spun to LOOK like noodles, which are good too but that's not what I'm talking about here).
These raw food noodles made from kelp are so @#$%#$^&#$% delicious I am totally addicted to them and I have ordered a CASE of them to keep in my kitchen pantry. That's how good they are!! Lol
What are these raw food noodles?
Officially, they are called kelp noodles and they are made from sea vegetables. They have almost no calories in them at all (it's almost freaky), and they are raw. And even freakier still they DO NOT TASTE LIKE SEA VEGETABLES. They have NO TASTE but they have a perfect noodle texture, kind of like angel-hair pasta. They take on the taste of whatever sauce you use with them, and they do so very well. (Do not eat without sauce though. They taste quite boring alone.)
They came in a clean package and the noodles are totally moist (like freshly boiled spaghetti) when you open them up. You just rinse them and use them right away. One package serves two people with very large portions, or would do four people as a side dish.
What's the story? Why am I going nuts over these raw food noodles?
First, I bought a few individual packages of raw food noodles from this online store to try out the noodles for the first time because I'd heard raw foodies talking about them. Well, as soon as my kelp noodles arrived I almost died from pure raw food delicious bliss when I tried the raw food noodles mixed with my alfredo sauce (and then later with a home-made basil pesto sauce). The trick is to mix your noodles and your sauce really really well, try putting them in a big bowl that has lots of room. Add your noodles and sauce, and mix very well to make sure all the noodles are coated in your favourite sauce. Mmmmm!!
When I first bought a couple of packages the brand that was shipped to me was called Sea Tangle Kelp Noodles. I immediately loved the noodles so much that I thought, "Screw buying a couple of packages at a time from a specialty raw food store. I am going to call up this noodle company directly and order a case load!" The actual company that makes these noodles does sell cases of 12 packages for a very reasonable price to any old person like me.
Where to buy kelp noodles:
Buy one or two: In other words, if you want to buy a few packages of raw food noodles to try them out, shop at your favourite online raw food supplier, like The Raw Food World or wherever you like.
Buy 12 or more: But if you're going to be buying lots of noodles like me just buy 'em by the case from Sea Tangle (noodle manufacturer) directly. There are twelve pacakages in a case.
So, go get yourself some raw food kelp noodles, make a batch of my creamy alfredo sauce, mix them up together really well (with a sprinkle of pepper and parsley if you have them), serve with a nice salad and you'll think you've died and gone to raw food heaven. Have I lied to you yet???
Happy noodling and let me know what you think of these delicious raw food kelp noodles!
