Mushroom Walnut Edamame Pasta
If you shop at Costco, you’ve probably seen these Edamame Spaghetti Noodles.
The question is, what’s the best way to cook them?
Check out my recipe below and you'll come to love edamame pasta after making this!v
What is edamame pasta?
Well, it's not your everyday pasta noodle.
It's made with two ingredients…edamame beans and water. That’s it!
This means they're very light and fragile, which means they break apart easily.
Right out of the box, I tried using them in place of whole-grain pasta with a traditional, red sauce.
To be totally honest, I did not love the results.
Buuuuut, when I babied them a little, they came to life in their own special way!

How to cook edamame spaghetti noodles
You're basically cooking them using the same method as any wheat pasta, but...
- Don't expect edamame noodles to act like wheat pasta. Just allow them to be fragile and expect that they'll fall apart a little during the process.
- Don't overcook them...it's easy to do because they only require about 4 minutes to fully cook.
- Be very gentle when rinsing and draining. They'll be prettier, trust me.
What I love about edamame pasta
A 2 oz serving of the Explore Asian brand edamame noodles has 1303g potassium, 25g protein, and 11g fiber.
The sodium in that serving is 3mg.
I want these numbers in my life!
They’re also certified organic, naturally gluten-free...and vegan; i.e., no egg product!
I'm not restricted, but I'm always on board with eating a plant-powered diet!
I’m happy to try any product that’s innovating those characteristics, especially if it’s a convenience food…and it very much is.
