More and more people are eating gluten free and with gluten free diets on the rise, so are products that cater to them. Early versions of pastas made out of beans were okay, but now they are getting really good and there are great reasons to jump on this bandwagon.
I just had the opportunity to try POW! Green Lentil Spaghetti by Ancient Harvest. Made out of just green lentil flour and organic quinoa flour, this pasta is just as springy and buoyant as whole wheat pasta with great taste. And no after taste! I just topped it with sauteed mushrooms and pasta sauce and it was delicious.
With 25 grams of protein per serving, you really can't go wrong with this pasta. It's also Non-GMO Project Certified, Kosher, and vegan. I love that there are no fillers in the ingredients either unlike some other bean-based pastas.
Other POW! Pasta products include Red Lentil Rotini, Green Lentil Penne, Black Bean Elbows, Red Lentil Linguini, and pasta meals. As POW! Pasta is new, you may find it in your grocery store soon or you can just grab some of their new pasta meals on Amazon here. I look forward to trying the other flavors soon!
Full Disclosure: Although the products were provided to me for free to review, that in no way influenced my veracious opinion.
