Prep & Usage
Place the Dried Konyaku in a bowl, pour boiling water over it, and leave for 5 minutes (no need to boil on the stove). Rinse and drain well, and it is then ready to add to any dish, even in place of noodles, or instead of pasta. Alternatively, simply place Dried Konyaku into any soup dish and it will absorb the liquid and flavours.
