To Soften the Noodles:
They won’t get super soft but you can tenderize them a bit by:
- Soften on counter top – Rinse noodles and place in a bowl. Add enough water to cover the noodles, add lemon juice and salt. Cover and allow them to soak overnight on the counter. When ready to use, rinse and serve.
- Soften in dehydrator – Rinse noodles and place in a bowl. Add enough water to cover the noodles, add lemon juice and salt. Place the bowl in the dehydrator and warm the noodles at 105 degrees over night or 145 degrees for a few hours.
- Soften in Braggs Aminos, Tamari or your desired “soy sauce” – Rinse noodles and place in a bowl. Toss in your soy sauce and allow it to marinate for a few hours or over night.
