Sure, I like pasta, but I prefer to have protein as the main component of my meal, along with vegetables. As a fitness instructor who is constantly on the go, I’m always looking for creative ways to get more protein, especially after hard workouts. That’s where Banza comes in. Banza makes a wonderful gluten free pasta that is high in protein and fiber, and guess what – it’s made from chickpeas!
I hear your questions already – “What’s the texture like? Does it taste like chickpeas?” No, it tastes like pasta. As one would expect, because of its unique ingredients Banza does have a slightly different texture than wheat-based noodles, but I don’t mind. I would so much rather have the protein than junky carbs.
- Certified gluten free
- Rotini, elbows, penne and shells are produced in a dedicated gluten free facility
- Free of the top 8 allergens
- Produced in a nut-free facility
- Made from over 90% chickpeas
- High in protein – 14g in a 2 oz serving! (25g protein for a more generous 3.5 oz serving)
I am thrilled with this pasta and especially love how allergen friendly it is. I’ve paired it with my homemade pasta sauce as well as pesto and parmesan cheese. Any way you do it, Banza is a delicious, nutritious, allergen-friendly option that will give you a boost of protein.
