Healthy alternative to pasta?


Recommended Posts

  • Simon changed the title to Healthy alternative to pasta?

There are many healthy alternatives to pasta that are lower in carbs, calories, and gluten. Some of them are:

  • Spaghetti squash: This is a starchy vegetable that can be roasted and scraped into noodle-like strands. It has a mild flavor and a similar texture to pasta, but with fewer carbs and more fiber and vitamin C.
  • Spiralized vegetables: These are vegetables that are cut into thin ribbons using a spiralizer or a vegetable peeler. You can use zucchini, carrots, beets, cucumbers, or any other firm vegetable. They can be eaten raw or cooked, and have a crunchy texture and a fresh flavor.
  • Shirataki noodles: These are translucent noodles made from the konjac yam, which is high in glucomannan, a type of soluble fiber. They are very low in calories and carbs, and have a gelatinous texture and a neutral taste. They can be rinsed and heated in a skillet before adding to your favorite sauce or dish.
  • Cabbage noodles: These are thin strips of cabbage that can be boiled, sautéed, or baked until tender. They have a mild flavor and a soft texture, and can be used in place of pasta in soups, casseroles, or stir-fries. They are low in carbs and calories, and high in vitamin C and antioxidants.
  • Eggplant lasagna: This is a variation of the classic Italian dish that uses thin slices of eggplant instead of lasagna noodles. Eggplant is low in carbs and calories, and high in fiber and antioxidants. It can be layered with cheese, tomato sauce, meat, or vegetables, and baked until bubbly.

You can use zucchini or cabbage. Just blanch in hot water and use. Cabbage may take a little longer soak but if you don't mind a bit of a crunch you can use it after a quick soak.
