Oh Costco, how we love thee so, so much. The wholesale retailer sells many of our favorite healthy foods in bulk, from huge boxes of spaghetti squash to two-packs of cauliflower crust pizza, and now there’s yet another item to add to our Costco shopping list: edamame spaghetti.
Earlier this Summer, the mega-sized supermarket started selling two-pound boxes of Explore Cuisine’s edamame pasta, and it’s been quite the hit among Costco shoppers so far. The spaghetti is organic, vegan-approved, and gluten-free, and the sole ingredient is edamame bean flour. Need we say more?
On top of that, the green noodles are loaded with plant-based protein — 24 grams per each two-ounce serving, to be exact. (Take that, everyone who wonders how vegans get their protein without eating meat!) Plus, every serving contains 13 grams of fiber, 180 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, and just 20 grams of carbohydrates, which is about half the amount of a regular pasta. Score!
Read on to see the various delectable ways people are cooking with this gluten-free pasta alternative, and don’t forget to add it to the top of your Costco shopping list, right alongside those enormous bags of frozen avocado chunks.
