Edamame Spaghetti - Anyone Tried It?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I purchased some organic edamame spaghetti from Costco last week. It was pretty inexpensive, and it seems to be a super nutritious food (the box says "ridiculously nutritious and delicious" - ha). But actually, it IS really tasty and nutritious!! 

One serving has 200 calories, 2 g fat, 11 g fiber (44%!), 24 g of protein (48%!), and 30% of Iron. This is just nuts to me, how nutritious it is.  There is only one ingredient - soybeans. It's also much lower in carbs than other gluten-free pastas - 21 g (7%) per serving. As I want to lose about 10 lbs, I'm looking for something nutritious with fewer carbs and lots of good stuff.

My question is, has anyone tried it, and if so, did you have any problems with it (excluding anyone with soy allergies - I don't have a problem with soy)? It's certified gluten-free - but before I go crazy eating it, I thought I'd check! Seems too good to be true.

We don't eat soy because of the way it is raised with ridiculous amounts of Rouond-up and it's virtually  ALL  GMO!  Soy messes with your hormones.  For men it can cause the breasts to enlarge.... for women, it can interfere with the natural hormones regulatory functions.  It has been altered so much, that it is no longer fit for human consumption!  Animals are fed a lot of it too... I try not to add any in as I'm getting it as a by-product of the meat I eat.

So, I'll address your question without resorting to scare tactics because I do use soy in my diet as I am dairy intolerant and I have yet to have my hormones do anything unusual except for the natural process of menopause!  Believe me, when menopause starts, you won't be obsessing about soy........:o

I would not hesitate to give that pasta a shot because, after all, soy is a really good source of protein and if you like the taste, why not include it in your diet?  I wouldn't go crazy eating it for the same reason you shouldn't do that with other foods but if you feel fine after eating it and like the taste, go for it!  It's always good to add variety to our diets.

I'm one of those who is intolerant to soy - sometimes. I had gotten it back for a while but since I got CC'd in June I am again off of corn and soy.

That being said, I had started eating some things that contain soy, although I didn't overdo it because of the GMO thing. It really is true that almost all soy is GMO nowadays.

BUT!!!!! The stuff you're talking about is ORGANIC. Therefore it is NOT soaked in Roundup. Go for it! And if you don't like it, see if you can find Ronzoni gluten-free. It is made of brown and white rices, quinoa, and corn - in a gluten-free facility in Italy (Where they don't do GMO's either.) And it's really really good. I have a cupboard full of it and as soon as I get corn back I'll be eating it often.

And if you DO like it, let us know. I'll look around and see if I can find some in my area.


gluten-free since June, 2011

It took 3 !/2 years but my intolerances to corn, soy, and everything else (except gluten) are gone!

Life is good!

To be clear, I HAVE tried it - and I really like it.  As long as you go into it knowing it won't taste like 'regular' pasta, it's a nice change up and a great source of protein. I had it with just some olive oil, olives, and S&P and it was great!

I was just wondering if anyone had any issues with it. I won't start eating it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. ;) I actually hadn't looked it up on amazon until Karen suggested it - and it looks like it is pretty popular. But if you can, buy it at Costco - definitely cheaper!

Thanks Gemini. I was trying to figure out a polite way to say that I did not intend to start a soy v. no soy debate. :)

Thanks for the link.  I am always interested in protein sources because I weight train. 24 grams per serving is phenomenal.......you usually only find that with animal sources.......which I am not averse to eating either but need variety!  ;)

I have seen these.  Probably wouldn't go over as a pasta replacement at my house.  But I bet it would be good with a spicy veggie stir-fry.  Hub is always wanted those rice noodles instead of actual rice,  But they have no fiber, etc. 

 

have you tried the black bean noodles?  I got some but haven't been brave enough to try them yet.  I thought I might use them for a Mexican sort of pasta - rotel tomato, corn, beans, etc.

Karen, I don't think I have seen those noodles, but I'd be interested to try them!

I think I'd only eat the edamame noodles if I'm making lunch for myself (that's what I've been doing since I'm off this week).  I don't think they would pass muster for the family - especially since the texture is different from regular noodles. ;)
