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.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      I finally found out my gluten issues right after I left a very stressful job and could no longer function I was so ill. Symptoms had gone on for decades before, but it took a moment of stress to bring it to a head. I had anxiety gerd and the irregular heartbeat and I had a nasty bout of shingles when I was 20 which I've subsequently realised was due to my compromised immune system.  Shingles follows a particular nerve  around the body which is probably why Cristiana's dr suspected it. I had it from the front right of torso moving around to my back. The pain you describe is similar to how shingles felt before the blisters arrived, it starts with the skin feeling very tender as if it's been burnt. Maybe you're getting the forerunner to it and your body is successfully stopping it progressing? Ah, enough amateur doctoring from me! I hope you get the answers you need and are soon on the way to recovery. Sending you best wishes.
    • Amaranth and Quinoa: Pseudo-cereal Super Foods
      My latest obsession is creating new quinoa recipes, since my eight year old daughter absolutely loves it! Her favorite is warm quinoa with crumbled turkey sausage, broccoli, and lots of cumin. She also loves it with oil and balsamic vinegar. I like it cold with chopped veggies, garlic, and fresh squeezed lemon juice. View the full article

    • Mexican?
      Chipotle is one of my favorite places to eat, but it is a 50/50 chance of having a reaction due to cross-contamination.  Yes, they graciously make an effort to be gluten-free and will change gloves.  BUT, before that they used gloves and handled flour tortillas and then used same gloves to reach into the lettuce and cheese--voila--cross-contaminated food.  Changing gloves for you does not avoid this cross-contamination problem.  I started having reactions and my daughter advised me to avoid all the corn products there because of what she read on their website about allergens--so no more chips, or crispy taco shells, or corn.  I also avoid the green salsa and the pico de gallo--not that I am aware of cross contamination but she never eats that there and she has been successful at not having reactions, so that is what I do now and have had much success. Here is what I get:   burrito bowl with either white or brown cilantro lime rice, grilled veggies, black beans, barbacoa, red salsa, cheese, sour cream, guacamole, and lettuce on top.  So GOOD! and so far, safe for me.
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Hi Elle.   To be honest, to this day I am not sure if I actually had zoster sine herpete.  It was one of several suggestions by bewildered doctors.  What I can tell you is that I had to have MRIs  because one doctor thought I might have trapped nerve in my spine and I thought it would reveal something dreadful being the sort of person who gets weird nerve sensations - and it didn't reveal a thing.   It was unsettling to have symptoms like that for so long but what made me think my brother in law might have been right was because the worst of the symptoms lasted a year which I gather is pretty typical (but don't panic, because they can go a lot faster!)   My nutritionalist told me that if we get run down we are more prone to shingles so that is something to watch. Easy to say (and I'm speaking to myself here!) try not to spend too much time by yourself worrying about these things because anxiety never helps with nerve pain. I found that rest was very beneficial so I would recommend you try to get as much of that as you can.  Also, someone suggested a warm bath for 20 minutes with some Epsom salts.  That helped too. As I say, just one reason you might be getting this pain but I would continue with the investigations and perhaps mention the pain to your doctor and ask if it could be shingles.

      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.
