View Full Version : Raw Kelp Noodles

So I bought those kelp noodles and they are crunchy. I was hoping for al dente.
Does anyone know how to make them soft? I tried the dehydrator in a bowl of water. Dint work.

If you toss them in a bit of oil and let set...they soften up a bit. Flavoured oil might be nice!
Sea tangle is always kinda crunchy though.

...This is how I love 'em....follow the recipe on the back...the one with peanut or peanut butter and miso...substitute the peanut for almond or other nut butter and substitute other raw ingredients as well....but all in a blender and blend up....pour over noodles and dehydrate for a couple of hours or more...yummmy......Enjoy!

Yup it's the oil on the nuts. Sounds like a nice Thai noodle dish, Debraw!:) Thanks for sharing your recipe. I tend to eat them the same way with veggies...your dish sounds warm and satisfying.

Shipping is so darn expensive so haven't made the leap yet. Can't find local however. Gosh....

It's so worth experimenting with these noodles; they're by far the best raw comfort food for pasta I've discovered. Also, salt might be a factor in softening them up. Try different sauces from Alissa's book until you hit the jackpot. I personally use alittle extra water and put them in the sexy Ex-calibur, but apparently they'll soften up on the counter at room temp too.

These are fantastic in Alissa's Pad Thai recipe. I snip them into pieces for easier eating. They soften to noodle texture when soaked in a sauce--at least they have for me. Absolutely love them!
I recently put them in my bean sprout salad, too. Bean sprouts, some water, shredded carrot, julienned cucumber, thin slices green onions, rice vinegar, a dash of tamari, a squirt of agave, some sesame oil (small amt. of roasted but could certainly use the raw), and sesame seeds. Have also varied this to add edamame and/or Sea Tangle's seaweed.

Has anyone tried the green tea kind? Do they have a tea flavour?
LadyGreenJeans you are making me sooooo hungry. Your delish recipe with the bean sprouts is calling me...now I'm going to up an order some Sea Tangle. Cheaper than the HF Store. I like your idea about cutting them into pieces too!
