What Does Lentil Pasta Taste Like?
If you’ve never tried lentil pasta before, I think it’s important that you know: lentil noodles REALLY taste like lentils. That said, they pair beautifully with the lightly steamed broc & the sweet tahini dressing! We really love the GoGo Qunioa brand as it’s super high in protein and has a nice texture. You might be also wondering, how long does lentil pasta take to cook? It only takes 7 to 10 minutes, depending on your desired level of al-dente.
