Our pastas are fantastic prepared in salads and served cold. Why?
1. Nutrition. Our organic bean pastas are far more like "salad" than traditional wheat-based pasta. With just two ingredients, organic beans and purified water, you're getting all the nutrient density of green, soy and black beans. So if you're trying to stay low-carb, slow-carb, paleo or just generally looking for healthy alternatives to carbs, bean pasta is a no-brainer.
2. Texture. Bean pasta cooks up al dente, every time. You actually can't overcook it! This is particularly handy when making cold pasta salads. Your pasta will not become waterlogged and mushy overnight. It stays perfectly al dente for days.
3. Flavor. Our bean pastas, particularly black bean and green bean, have a beautiful, subtle flavor of beans. This makes them ideal accompaniments and bases for salads like antipastos (italian style), asian noodle salads, chopped salads and so many others.
Try it for yourself. Below are some cold salad ideas. Just substitute the recipe noodles with our bean pastas:
Whip these salads up, toss them in the fridge and enjoy a delicious, low-carb, high-protein, HEALTHY PASTA lunch!
