Miracle Rice Review

I finally got around to trying one of the packages of Miracle Rice that I have here. I'm trying to improve my diet as I've gained a couple of pounds and that is the exact opposite of what I want to happen this summer. Miracle rice is shirataki rice which is made of konjac flour. I believe it is from a type of yam. The "rice" are little gelatinous bits that are calorie, carbohydrate, soy, and gluten free. They also are not made from genetically modified ingredients. The nutrition information literally says 0 grams for everything except carbs which is "less than 1 gram" for a 3 ounce serving. Preparing this product was easy to do. You drain and rinse the rice, cook it in boiling water (I used beef broth to add flavor) for 1-2 minutes, drain, and then cook it in a non-oiled pan on medium heat to dry it. (that took about 5 minutes) Then it was done! I ate it plain with just a bit of butter on top as a side to the roast beef and broccoli that I was having for lunch. It was pretty good and similar in texture to cauliflower rice. You could also use this to make "fried rice" or some kind of cold or room temperature "rice salad". I would definitely cook it in vegetable stock or chicken stock, though, to give the rice flavor. If you are trying to eliminate carbs or calories but still want something to eat on your plate, consider trying Miracle Rice. I ordered mine from Amazon.

I had one tablespoon of rice last night. I love it but it's heavy.

They are both good but not everyone likes the flavor of cauliflower. Miracle Rice takes on the flavor of whatever you cook with it.

I tried it but it didn't satisfy my taste buddy. Glad you liked it.

I think you have to cook it with lots of broth and/or lots of other veggies and stuff to get a lot of flavor in there.

@NJChicaa I probably didn't add enough spices. I believe I used lemon pepper.

I've heard of shirataki before and had the noodles. Well, they aren't too bad, the only problem is that they're quite expensive compared to pasta or rice.
