I have been transitioning to raw for the last 4-5 weeks, mainly for health/weight reasons but since I have found this website – now for wonderful taste reasons – thank you all so much for the inspiration and variety, I feel truly blessed. I made this last night and can I say kelp noodles are truly a Godly gift. I almost could not tell the difference between them (after soaking) and ramen noodles. (Must soak otherwise hard and crunchy.) I found them at my local Asian supermarket in the cold section; made by Sea Tangle – you can also find them on line. Translucent=raw – green=cooked.
