If you shop at Costco, you’ve probably seen Explore Asian Organic Edamame Spaghetti Noodles. The question is, what’s the best way to prepare them? Try my 20 minute, Cremini Walnut Edamame Spaghetti Noodles for an easy, delicious weeknight dinner.
Cremini Walnut Edamame Spaghetti Noodles
Pasta happens to be one of my all-time favorite comfort foods. You too, right? So, right out of the box, I tried substituting these noodles in place of whole grain pasta with a traditional, red sauce. To be totally honest, I didn’t love the results. However, they were awesome when prepared with olive oil, mushrooms, and walnuts, which is why I created this recipe post.
Please note, this is not a sponsored post, I simply wanted to give you my recipe for this very unique product.
Can I prepare edamame spaghetti noodles the same way I prepare whole grain pasta noodles?
For the most part, yes. But, know that they’re not like traditional pasta noodles. They’re made from two ingredients…edamame beans and water. That’s it! So, they have a very light texture which allows them to break apart easily and cook in 4-5 minutes in boiling water.
They’re also certified organic, and they’re naturally vegan and gluten free…bonus!
What I love about this recipe (and these noodles) is that they’re known for being a low carb, high protein and high fiber option. I’m happy to try any product that’s innovating those numbers, especially if it’s a convenience food…and it very much is.
