Explore Cuisine Organic Bean Pasta

Made with two gluten-free ingredients - organic edamame and organic mung beans, this vegetarian-friendly protein-rich (24g protein per serving size) pasta alternative boasts high nutritional value. Explore Cuisine bean pastas* are all certified gluten-free, vegan and kosher.

There are some other brands of gluten-free chickpea and lentil pasta in the market that cooks soft and mushy, but this bean pasta from Explore Cuisine* does not.  In fact, within 4-5 minutes, this pasta cooks to al-dente which was what I wanted for my noodle salad. The "beany" taste is also a pleasant surprise - in a beany good way!  If you have tried fresh yuba (tofu skins) before, this bean pasta tastes similar.
