So-Yah! Red Vindaloo Curry Tofu Shirataki Noodles

So-Yah! Red Vindaloo Curry Tofu Shirataki Noodles

Part of the goody bag from my Behind the Scenes: House Foods America Corporation - Garden Grove tour was this package of So-Yah! Red Vindaloo Curry Tofu Shirataki Noodles.

The shirataki noodles are made from yam flour and tofu so they're low-carb. Only 20 calories and 3 g of carbs per 4 oz serving.

This package was 10 oz, so still very low-carb if that's what you're looking for.

Besides tofu and yam flour, ingredients also included: coconut cream, tomato paste, garbanzo beans, red bell peppers, carrots, and spices.

But how did it taste?

Overwhelmingly spicy. Not so much nuanced spicy, but just spicy. The texture of the shirataki noodles was like overcooked, mushy pasta. I've had yam flour noodles, minus the tofu, before and that texture was bouncier.

At $3.something a package, I'm not sure this would be worth it. It also looks like it's been discontinued.

But it case it's back in stock, you can buy the So-Yah! Red Vindaloo Curry Tofu Shirataki Noodles in a pack of 8 from Amazon or singly from Asian Food Grocer, which I've ordered from before with good results.
