So-Yah! Creamy Coconut Curry Tofu Shirataki Noodles

So-Yah! Creamy Coconut Curry Tofu Shirataki Noodles

One last item in the goody bag from my Behind the Scenes: House Foods America Corporation - Garden Grove tour was this package of So-Yah! Creamy Coconut Curry Tofu Shirataki Noodles. After being underwhelmed with the So-Yah! Red Vindaloo Curry Tofu Shirataki Noodles, I wasn't too excited to try the coconut curry noodles.

Like the vindaloo noodles, these shirataki noodles were made from yam flour and tofu. They're low-carb at 3 g of carbs and 20 calories per 4 oz serving.

Even though the ingredients were the same as the red vindaloo curry: tofu, yam flour, coconut cream, tomato paste, garbanzo beans, red bell peppers, carrots, and spices, the taste was quite different.

How different?

Smooth, creamy, coconutty.

Like eating a Thai curry.

The texture of the noodles was still like mushy pasta, but I could overlook that because the sauce was much tastier. I would eat this again, especially if I was craving pasta while eating low-carb.

You can order the So-Yah! Creamy Coconut Curry Tofu Shirataki Noodles from Amazon in packs of 8 or singly from Asian Food Grocer, which I've ordered from before and recommend.
