Let’s find out some of the unique and tasty gluten-free pasta for tonight’s dinner!
Banza Chickpea Pasta
Banza chickpea pasta has twice the protein, three times the fiber, and half the carbs of regular pasta. It is non-GMO and completely vegan. It was featured in TIME Magazine as one of the ’25 Best Inventions of 2015′.
People who tried Banza gluten-free pasta say it tastes and looks just like regular wheat pasta. They come in various shapes: penne, rotini, shells, elbow, wheel, angel hair, spaghetti, linguine, and many more.
Trader Joe’s Organic Brown Rice & Quinoa Fusilli Pasta
Trader Joe’s is known for its unique, healthy products and low prices. Their gluten-free pasta is something you should definitely try. It is only made with three ingredients: organic brown rice, organic quinoa, and water. It has a chewy and bouncy texture to it.
Schar Naturally Gluten-Free Fusilli
Schar gluten-free pasta is great for salads and creamy sauces. Many people complain that gluten-free pasta gets mushy and gummy once it’s chilled, but this brand will maintain its texture and consistency. It’s made with corn flour, rice flour, and vegetable palm oil.
Shirataki spaghetti is not well known to the public, but soon it will become a health trend. Shirataki is made from glucomannan, a type of fiber from the konjac root. This spaghetti is a mix of potato starch, konjac flour, and chickpea flour, creating a gelatinous texture. This gluten-free pasta is ideal for people on a strict diet and looking for low-calorie food. Glucomannan fiber has been proven to promote weight loss and reduces the hormones that stimulate hunger.
The Only Bean Black Bean Spaghetti
Black bean pasta is high in protein and fiber, providing four times more nutrients than regular pasta. It keeps you full longer and improves your digestion. The Only Bean pasta comes in three different kinds: black bean, edamame, and soybean. If you wonder what it tastes like, why not try it and see if you like it. It’s always fun to cook in the kitchen with unique ingredients.
