What are those thick round long noodles called in chinese or oriental food? I want to start cooking noodles, and was wondering if those type of noodles are available in stores.

Are you referring to the noodles frequently used in lo mein?<br><br><br><br>
I think those are egg noodles, but I could be wrong and I'm willing to be corrected. ^^

you could be right, I don't know. I just find it with chow mein type dishes, but they are much thicker than regular chow mein noodles.

yah, sounds like udon noodles. the kind the groc store i go to has aren't nearly as thick as the kind i find when i go out to eat. they are good though. watch the sodium content, traditional japanese noodles can have A LOT of sodium in them. i guess there are lower sodium varieties...though my groc store doesn't carry these. i only eat the japanese noodles (soba and udon) occasionally so it doesn't bother me a whole lot.

udon...perhaps. I'll look into it. I take it they are vegan. Next time I go to the store I'll buy some noodles <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
what are some good recipes for sauces for the noodles? anybody have some or a link?<br><br><br><br>
thanks.

As always, read the label. Udon noodles generally are through. Weirdly enough, chuka soba brand soba noodles have lactose. other brands of soba noodles dont.<br><br><br><br>

hey clarity,<br><br><br><br>
this was one of my first vegan recipes i tried and i think its excellent. i've made it with udon noodles as well and found it just as good.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.vegweb.com/food/pasta/soba-noodles-2.shtml" target="_blank">http://www.vegweb.com/food/pasta/soba-noodles-2.shtml</a><br><br><br><br>
honestly i think this is the only way i've prepared soba/udon noodles. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
i've found very few non-vegan noodles. besides egg. but yah as ebola said, its best to look at the ingredient list.

A friend of mine introduced me to tofu noodles. Has anyone else had it? Really light summer dish. Great with seasonings/sauce of your choice, and veggies.

i love rice noodles. i buy the really thin ones and make curry noodles. i fry up veggies as i normally do for stir fry, but add curry powder and a bit of ginger, add the noodles and a cup of water and cover for a few minutes til the noodles soften, then mix it all up and fry til the water's all gone<br><br><br><br>
very yummy

The best soba and udon noodles can be found ( if you have one) in the marcrobiotic section of your HFS. They are expensive but worth it!!! If I see them on sale I buy a few packages otherwise its a once in a while treat.<br><br>
THey are so satisfying but not heavy at the same time

Hi, Tofu. Unfortunately, I can't give you the name of the company that makes the tofu noodles. (Everything but the ingredient label is written in Chinese.) I picked up the product in the refrigerated section at an asian market. The "noodles" are pretty thin, (about as thick as cooked angel hair pasta) and have no added seasonings. No need to cook the noodles, either! Picks up the flavours of whatever you mix in. Ingredients: tofu, salt, & water. Hope this helps...

tofu noodles are the best .. i discovered it a couple of weeks ago, and now addicted to it .. it contains no fat, about 3 grams of carbs per serving and only 20 calories! it's a good substitute for the "real" noodles and pasta

House Foods makes some awesome tofu noodles, that come in both 'spaghetti' and 'fettucine' shape. <a href="http://www.tofushirataki.com" target="_blank">http://www.tofushirataki.com</a> I get them at Whole Foods (only $1.39!) though I hear that if you have trouble finding them they actually sell them on Amazon.com! (don't quote me on that, I've just heard someone mention it). And for those who are concerned, one of the best parts about them is that there's only 40 calories for that whole bag of noodles!! And you can use them for anything...

I have tried the shirataki noodles but did not care for them. They were too bouncy. It depends on what I am making as to which noodle I use. Right now I have 9-10 different kinds of noodle in my pantry, not including ramyun noodles.
