What is Spaghetti?
Spaghetti is a type of pasta that has a long, thin, cylindrical shape of Italian and Sicilian origin. Spaghetti is made of semolina or flour and water., more commonly made from semolina or water and flour. Many people are unable to eat pasta made from these ingredients whether due to diet, health, or allergies. Fortunately, pasta does not need to be made from these ingredients, and that is where this awesome new product comes into the scene.
What is the taste?
Taste is relative to the person's taste buds of course. However, based on our own taste buds, this Black Bean Spaghetti tastes kind of like, well... - old school pasta. We personally cannot really tell any significant difference between what we remember our traditional flour based pasta tasted like when we were kids and this great product. Aside from the bold colouring, once you add the sauce or broth, most people we have 'tested' it on, think it's a cooked vegetable or regular pasta with colouring added. We have served it in its raw form only, overall warm, (basically room temperature with a warmed sauce from the blender). We found it is easy on the digestion too, which is peculiar for a bean based food. While digestion varies greatly with each individual, we have found personally that it does not create havoc on the digestion for us.
Out of the bag they taste like traditional spaghetti noodles too, and
they are crunchy and actually somewhat addictive as a snacky food. It
could be the taste buds here, but we couldn't stop eating them out of
*Is it Raw?
we do know is that the manufacturer processes the product around the
120 degree mark. This is basically borderline for being classified as
'Raw'. Some believe it to be 115 degrees while others insist that it is
120 degrees. The truth is that different foods degrade or lose nutrients
at different rates and degrees, but generally speaking the range for
most foods is between 115-120 degrees. Ultimately it is your own
decision as to what you classify it. We classify it as a Raw food and
prepare it without 'cooking'.
How to prepare?
course you can add your own broth or sauces cooked or raw to the
noodles or use them however you wish. Here is how to prepare just the
overnight 1-2 days or until softens. We have put very warm filtered
water over the noodles and they soften up quite a bit right away, but
not completely soft like a cooked noodle, they are a bit chewy still, so
the soak time is needed.
Cooked: Boil 8 cups of water, simmer until cooked through or softened. Immediately rinse with cold running water.
Note: Manufactured in a facility that processes soybean and other beans.
