Last week a friend gave us to packs of something called "protein noodles", from a company called Barenakedfoods. Their website is the worst I have seen in a long time, fortunately their product is completely the opposite.
As you can probably tell from the "protein noodles" moniker this is a low carb product. It has no wheat at all in it. That's right, gluten free! Low carb, low fat, low calorie, gluten free, sugar free. As they say themselves, the food you love stripped barenaked of the bad bits...
They do make one proviso around gluten free, apparently it contains oatmeal flour. Not sure how this would possibly affect someone who is properly gluten intolerant. From a low carb perspective, that doesn't really matter though.
Tried them today, with our classic mince soup, and they really work! Quick to cook (just heat for a few minutes), hold together well, very nice texture with a bit of bite to it. Doesn't taste of much, but is a perfect vehicle for mopping up sauce.
Time to bring out my old pasta sauce recipes! With these noodles, carbonara suddenly becomes Low Carb High Fat and high protein!
Will definitely be buying more of these.
