Kelp Noodle Recipes?

MaggieFSW | | Jan 30, 2012 12:33 PM

I recently bought a package of kelp noodles at the grocery store, mostly out of curiosity. I hadn't had them before, but figured they could be tossed into a stir-fry dish for some added nutrition. So I went home did just that, but they weren't all that great.

I did the following simple steps (as indicated on the back of the package):
Took the noodles out of the package and rinsed them off.
Threw the noodles into the stir-fry with the rest of the vegetables and let cook for about 5-8 minutes.

Maybe I didn't let them cook enough...maybe I was supposed to blanch them first, I'm not sure. But the texture of the noodles was like plastic and they didn't absorb the simple stir-fry sauce I made (ginger, garlic and soy sauce, with a little sesame oil at the end for flavor.)

So the questions are:

How are these noodles supposed to be prepared?
Are they supposed to have a plastic/cellophane-ish type of texture?

Thanks in advance for any help!
