Edamame pasta is great

Pros

  • 24g of protein per serving, which is pretty insane for pasta. Being soybeans, it's a complete protein.

  • For me and quite a few people I know, it's also protein that's highly satiating. Two servings will definitely fill me up, which pretty much just doesn't happen for plant-based protein for me.

  • Cooks very fast -- boil some water, add the pasta, wait like 5 minutes and it's done.

  • Imo, the taste and especially the texture are way better than normal pasta. I like the chewy consistency and it has a real distinct taste.

  • The kind I get has one ingredient. I guess this is true for normal pasta too, but it's pretty rare for alternative products.

  • Vegan, if you care about that sort of thing.

  • High in fiber, if you care about that sort of thing.

  • Low in carbs, if you care about that sort of thing. Maybe not the best keto food, but quite good for low-carb, and totally blows out of the water any other bean product and most soy products as well.

  • Seems to be fairly nutritious. My package didn't say much about that though, other than large amounts of potassium.

  • Very low in calories. I generally try to avoid this, but might be useful if you're trying to lose weight.

    Cons

  • Mine was $2.75, which is the cheapest I've seen. A box is around a day of protein for me, but it might not be the most economical option. Plus the lack of calories means you have to have something with it. This is really only a con if your protein needs are high and your budget is super tight though.

  • If you like meat-heavy sauces, the large amount of protein and fiber will make you horribly bloated.

  • It's green and so looks really gross.

    Well, I'm fascinated. I've experimented so much with zucchini noodles, but they don't reheat well. I bet this would be great with a nice alfredo.

    I haven't tried edamame pasta - but zucchini noodles are pretty good.

    Been getting into making my own pasta from scratch, which is kind of fun, too.

    This sounds like it's worth a try.

    @Xhin:
    The FSM is the Flying Spaghetti Monster.
    Quob (the pronoun for the FSM) was to parody the Intelligent Design textbooks of the Kansas School Board; they tried to claim they weren’t religious because they never said the Intelligent Designer was God.
    The parodist said “No, you’re right, the Intelligent Designer is clearly the Flying Spaghetti Monster”; and thus a new Church was born.
    There is a big enough following now that two FB groups of Pastafarians got big before becoming aware of each other!
    In some countries the Pastafarians have succeeded in asserting their right to wear their religious headgear (id est, colanders) in official government identification photographs.

    Anyway the Facebook group “The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster” frequently has discussions about various kinds of pasta and various dishes made with pasta.

    Pastafarians say “Ramen” where Jews and Christians would say “Amen”.

    @Weird_Occurance:
    Years ago some artist on a group I was in — I think it was probably the ZBB — made me a stained-glass-window-looking thing for
    “The Ecumenical Council of Supposititious Faiths”.
    If I remember correctly there were six of them.
    If I remember correctly they were:
    FSM;
    Bob the Sub-Genius;
    The Invisible Pink Unicorn;
    Russel’s Orbiting Teapot;
    The Dragon in Carl Sagan’s Garage;
    And Erie’s Apple of Discord.

    I wish I still had it!
