5 Delicious & Healthy Pasta Alternatives To Try Now

Pasta is one of those fail-safe dishes that is globally praised as a go-to comfort food. I mean, who doesn’t smile at the sight of a big plate of pasta? Seriously, the stuff is so versatile. It can be whipped up in under 10 mins, and more often then not, there’s plenty of leftovers for the next day.

There are times, however, when the Italian delicacy can be somewhat heavy on the digestive tract, and if you’re watching your carb intake, pasta is usually the first to go. For all the coeliacs out there, we know the struggle is real. Luckily, there are some innovative alternatives that not only add a new twist to your favorite pasta dishes but are also seriously healthy and nutritious for everyone to enjoy.

The Sporteluxe team has rounded up 5 different pasta alternatives for you to consider on your next cooking venture.

1. Mung Bean

Mung Bean, pasta alternatives, spaghetti, comfort food

Organic edamame are blended with mung bean to create these fettuccine strands that will add a serious zest to your taste buds. Mung and edamame beans are very high in protein and fiber so they’ll pack a nutritional punch. Team Sporteluxe likes to pair this pasta alternative with pesto.

2. Black Bean

Black beans are used in many native dishes around the world, and for good reason. They’re naturally high in fiber and protein and make for a great side dish. But what if we told you that black beans could be the focal point of your next meal? Try Black Bean noodles as a substitute to your next Mexican stir-fry, in a miso noodle soup or even tossed in a salad.

3. Soba Noodles

Soba noodles are a great pasta alternative since they have a similar texture and are made of buckwheat, which provides a nuttier taste. As a slow releasing carbohydrate (meaning they prove to be a longer lasting source of energy), they’re a great option if you’re watching your calorie intake. Try Buckwheat noodles as a side dish to this easy-to-make seared salmon.

4. Zoodles (Zucchini noodles)

The zucchini noodle isn’t new on the pasta alternative scene, but it is one we love truly and dearly for it’s easy to make, colorful recipes. We can’t get enough of this zucchini dish with prawns, chill, and lemon. All you need is a veggie peeler!

5. Spaghetti Squash

Another veggie alternative, spaghetti squash is a great guilt-free option to combine with a hearty marinara sauce, or pretty much whatever inspires you. Use a spiralizer or a fork to create the spaghetti-like strings. Just be sure to cut it in half, bake and scrape out the seeds.
