Chick Pea Shells Pasta

Chick pea shells pasta are one of newer vegan products that we are beginning to see on the supermarket shelves. The chick pea shells pasta are also gluten free, being made with chick peas, tapioca, pea protein, and xanthan gum. They are very good tasting and hold their shape very well in the cooking process, with cooking time being similar to other pastas. These Banza chick pea shells are promoted prominently on the box as being gluten-free, low glycemic index, non-gmo, and vegan. The cooking instructions are the same as those of other pasta products.

Some background information:

Over the years, people  have been asking us, “What do vegans eat?” This is probably because they first think about a flesh product first and everything else as a side dish. So, we began publishing the huge variety of plant foods that are available for us to eat in this section of our web site. Additionally, we are always on the lookout for something new to add to our collection and experiment with to incorporate into our meals. We have also found that eating mostly unprocessed plant foods make us much more healthy.
