So, what is pongee?

Pongee is a silky, lightweight fabric often used in the fashion industry, but it's also the name of an Asian food ingredient. Pongee, also known as shiritaki noodles, is made from the konjac yam plant and is commonly used in Japanese cuisine. These translucent noodles have a neutral taste and a slightly chewy texture, making them a versatile ingredient in many dishes. Pongee noodles are low in calories and high in fiber, making them a popular choice for those seeking healthier meal options. They can be used in stir-fries, soups, salads, and even as a low-carb pasta substitute.
