Products made with bean or pulse flours (like lentil pasta) are becoming more popular. Why? Well, in my opinion, because they are delicious. But foods like bean pasta also pack extra health benefits over products like wheat pastas. They are richer in dietary fiber and protein to help keep you full, and they can also have better mineral content.
There are other benefits of bean pasta, too. For example, products made from bean flour can be a fantastic way to still enjoy pasta for those who follow a gluten-free dietary pattern.
Added bonus: it’s a great opportunity to get creative in the kitchen!
