NoOodle Soup: For a quick, easy guilt-free meal

How would you like a soup that is all natural and gluten-free, with an ingredient that offers no calories, no net carbs, no soy and no preservatives?
Self-taught Chef Terri Rogers, founder of the NoOodle ™ Company has created a variety of recipes centered on this ingredient.
I recently had the opportunity to try a couple soups made with the NoOodle noodle. I have to say, I was excited to give them a try. After reading what the key ingredient in NoOodle soups has to offer - including health benefits - I was curious about the taste.
I tried two different soups from the NoOodle™ Company, Chicken Noodle and Tomato Risotto. They each came packaged in 16.9 oz. boxes. A full list of the all-natural ingredients includes the key ingredient, the Yam Noodle. The yam-based noodle is what Chef Terri Rogers and her company is all about. Consumed in Japan for centuries, where Rogers first discovered it and brought it to America, led to the creation of her company.

The NoOodle consists of a dietary fiber called glucomannan. Glucomannan is a water-soluble dietary fiber derived from the root of an Asian yam plant. It is designed to slow digestion and trap cholesterol and fat from being absorbed by the body.
First I tried the Chicken Noodle. Even though the soup can be heated in the microwave, I decided to heat it on the stove top so that I could see the ingredients and smell the aroma as it heated.
Following the directions - I went from the box to the bowl in less than 5 minutes and sit down to a delightful bowl of Chicken Noodle Soup.
The noodles were not at all like I thought. After reading about the NoOodle, I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get past the texture. I had an image of a slick, mushy noodle, which couldn't have been further from it. The texture of the noodle was firm and gentle and not at all mushy. The soup is not shy on noodles, it's packed with plenty of noodles in a very flavorful chicken broth, diced carrots, celery and generous chunks of chicken. It was very enjoyable.
NoOodle Tomato & Risotto Soup
The Tomato Risotto Soup was equally flavorful. The noodle was a lot lighter than that in the chicken noodle soup. It didn't have a lot of texture to it but went great with the tomato based broth. The soup also has diced tomatoes, pieces of spinach and basil that give it a very flamboyant flavor.
Whether your diabetic, on a gluten-free diet, watching your calories and carbs or just prefer to eat healthy - you'll enjoy the NoOodles Soup.

The NoOodle line of soup retails for $5.99 each and can be purchased online at along with their entire line of products.
