Konnyaku "Skwid" with Peas
Friday, March 02, 2007
We found a package of konnyaku "skwid" at the Asian grocery store. Konnyaku is a yam that is ground into flour and made into a jelly. It is high in fiber but low in calories. It is usually sold in blocks or as shirataki noodles, but this is another application - a vegan alternative to squid.
Stir-fried the "skwid" over high heat until they were almost blistered. Then stir-fry some peas with garlic and tossed it all togther.
The "skwid" had a nice crunch; not tough or chewy at all.
