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.co...artland 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.
