Sure, plant-based noodles sound good, in theory. But in case you’re wondering about how this stuff actually tastes, the Amazon reviews are quite telling.
The product has mostly five-star reviews, and it seems to be great for those with dietary concerns or those just looking for a healthier option. Apparently, the taste and texture live up to regular ol’ pasta, too.
“My husband is Italian and diabetic, so pasta is a challenge. We LOVE Explore Edamame Spaghetti! The texture is very similar to pasta, the flavor is mild and works as a great carrier for sauce/gravy. So glad we discovered something that he can enjoy without spiking his blood sugar,” one five-star Amazon review read.
And there are plenty more where that came from!
Convinced to give these a try? Then you’ll need to know just how to cook them! The product descriptions suggested you can combine these with mushroom sauce or coat them in olive oil, and honestly both sound delicious.
