Gluten Free Noodles In The Microwave
0

8 posts in this topic

I attempted to cook some gluten-free noodles in the microwave today because I REALLY wanted some alfredo.  Well the noodles got all goopy and had white creamy stuff all over them and tasted pretty nasty.  I wasted like half the package :(

 

I got a microwavable container and added my noodles and water and them stuck them in the microwave for 10 minutes, stirring every 2 minutes.  What did I do wrong? Or do I just have to cook these noodles on a stove top?

 

I live in a dorm and we do have a stove, but all the pots are missing so I thought I'd try this.  Anybody have any ideas?

I am not to sure what heartland noodles are.. Are they rice noodles? Potato noodles? There are a few more out there. I have found the Rice noodles are better than any other kind... just my opinion ... They 1st time I cooked gluten-free noodles it was disgusting also!! It was mushy , absorbed all the sauce making it more mushy .. Bleekkk!! Yukkk .. These Rice noodles are very good and they can be a bit over cooked , and still be good! Try Rice noodles. I have never cooked any noodles in the microwave. I cannot imagine ...

I must respectfully disagree. I find the corn/quinoa noodles not only better, but they are far more forgiving than rice noodles. Plus you don't have to rinse them.

 

At any rate, the noodles, from what i looked up and i might be wrong, are a mix of corn and rice noodles. This is what i looked at http://www.amazon.com/Heartland-Gluten-Free-Spaghetti-12-Ounce/dp/B003TRFU06/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1378517673&sr=8-1&keywords=heartland+noodles

 

Are you using enough water?

 

I haven't cooked gluten-free noodles in the microwave, but back when i used to cook gluten-y noodles in the microwave, i found if i didn't use enough water, then they never came out quite right.

I've not tried gluten-free noodles but the gloopyness (looked like wallpaper paste yuk!) happened to me when I cooked gluten-free pasta in a pan until I found out I was supposed to put it in boiling water (not cold) and then simmer. I don't know if its the same with noodles.

I have never tried the corn/quinoa noodles, I have tried I think it was potato noodles. Those were gross. I have these Rice noodles and I made a pasta salad with them and no one even knew they were Gluten free, My daughter even said "Mom I cannot even believe you are eating that. Because she could not believe they were Gluten free. So I kinda stuck with that. I will have to try the  corn/quinoa noodles.

With the noodles I cook yes it is the same.

    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      What?  Be sure that next endoscopy tests you for lymphoma (cancer) as well!   Seriously.  You need to do some research as your knowledge of celiac disease is lacking.  Did you fail the entire celiac panel?  Or did your doctor/insurance save cash and just order the very good (but does not catch all celiacs) TTG IgA?  You have a family history, a positive biopsy, what more do you need?  You do realize that this is not about just giving up gluten, don't you?  We just had a member join this year who was told years ago that her tests were "inconclusive" and that she now has suffered with lymphoma (cancer)? Ugh!   Endoscopy in 10 years?  Who would even wait 10 years?  This isn't colon cancer and polyps!   Are you talking about a colonoscopy?  Are you even sure you had an endoscopy?   Be sure you have your bones checked too.....and forget the breath.  You might not have any teeth and implants will be out since your bones will be compromised. Sorry, if I come on strong, but when I was diagnosed I had no tummy issues.  A few months later, my bones began breaking.  I was undiagnosed for a long time because of mis-informed doctors.  At least it was not stupidity on my part.   So, I urge you to research this disease more!  Hopefully you'll ward on another autoimmune disorder by remaining gluten free.  Find what celiac blood tests were actually taken!  Even if you do not think you have celiac disease, something has caused villi damage -- like a parasite, milk, or something......even more sinister! Good luck!  
    • Really, Really Foul Breath Post-glutening?
      In addition to eating gluten-free, I attribute the following to knocking out my bad breath once and for all: 1. SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash (this is what really did it for me!) 2. Flonase Nasal Spray 3. Dr. Tung's Tongue Scraper 4. The obviously brushing and flossing twice daily (goes without saying).    
    • Positive Biopsy, Negative Blood Tests
      I went in for an endoscopy to find out if something from my stomach/intestine was causing my bad breath.  A biopsy during that procedure revealed that I had Celiac.  I thought it was strange since I ate pizza, pasta, and other bread/gluten items almost every day without issue, so I decided to confirm the biopsy result with a blood test. I took the blood test twice (once on a high- and once on a low-gluten diet) and it came back negative both times.  I just assumed someone at the earlier biopsy lab must have messed up my analysis or accidently mistaken someone else's biopsy for mine, but after reading this thread it seems like my initial biopsy might have been correct all along. My doctor suggested doing another endoscopy, but I didn't want to foot the bill for that.  Also, my older brother has Celiac which was confirmed by both a biopsy and blood test. Eating less gluten did seem to help a little with my bad breath, but SmartMouth Activated Mouthwash along with Flonase nasal spray and a Dr. Tung's tongue scrapper really did the trick to solve the bad breath issue. I'm just assuming I have Celiac and eating "gluten conscious" until my next endoscopy in about 10 years. If that biopsy comes back positive again, then I'll be strictly gluten-free.  I'm just glad I don't have many symptoms.      
    • Anxiously waiting
      You might ask your doctor if they have a standby/wait list Kal.  Some do that and then they can fit in people if there are cancellations or no-shows.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
