Smart Rice. Have any of you tried the different konjac noodles and rice? They are definitely different than wheat noodles or than either brown or white rice! It’s great that they are 0 carb! And they are fairly simple to prepare.
The first time I tried konjac noodles, though, I was NOT impressed! I ate them, but I don’t know that I wanted to eat them again! Now, I love them! Whether that’s because they grow on you, or because I’m learning how to better prepare them, and what dishes I like them in, I’m not sure.
I’ve frequently used the noodles, but I’ve still been having a hard time with the rice. This recipe features the rice, cooked with a very small amount of brown rice! And, I think it does the trick! I feel like I’m eating a plate full of rice, although I’ve only used 2 Tablespoons! And perhaps it’s all in my mind… but it tastes so much more like rice! ?
Here is a link to my store, to the konjac rice I sell.
If you are following Trim Healthy Mama, this could be used as an S Helper. Or you can use it in an E. You would need to have another carb source in your E meal, as there is not much from the rice. You will want to be aware that this has a full E allowance of oil, so if you are going to have any other fat in your meal, take that into consideration.
Low Carb Rice:
1-8 ounce package Miracle Rice
1 cup water
2 Tablespoons dry brown rice
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
Drain and rinse konjac rice well. Transfer to a small saucepan, and add the other ingredients. Bring to a boil. Turn down to low and let simmer till the brown rice is cooked and the liquid is gone.
That’s it! Top it how you like! Hope you enjoy this!

looks delicious, but I prefer THM konjak rice and noodles bc of the better texture!
You can use the THM rice in this. 🙂 I can’t tell a difference in the two brands, and the ingredients are the same, but, we all have our preferences! 🙂
I might have to try this. Have not had any success to date with the glucci noodle/rice products.
I hope you like it if you do try this ‘rice’. I also have a broccoli noodle soup that uses the noodles.
