Doves Farm Organic Brown Rice Spaghetti

Doves Farm Organic Brown Rice Spaghetti

I’m always looking for ways to eat healthier but still maintain taste. This week I tried Doves Farm Organic Brown Rice Spaghetti. It’s wholegrain pasta, made in Italy from brown rice, and is gluten-free. It’s not lower in carbs than white pasta, but I think (and I could be wrong), that it’s a better type of carb. If brown rice is better than white, than brown rice pasta has to be better than white pasta, right?

I prepared it according to package directions, but used it in a stir-fry with Asian flavours, similar to how I would use Soba noodles. I stir-fried vegetables and pan fried tuna, then combined it all together with a sweet Asian honey soy sauce.

The noodles get very sticky. I noticed this while they were still cooking – you have to stir more often than you would regular spaghetti because it really likes to stick together. I boiled the noodles in a large pot with lots of water, but they still stuck together. They also need plenty of sauce mixed through them once they’re cooked. I didn’t have enough sauce and they were really stuck together. That said, the noodles didn’t taste sticky or goopy or bad in any way. On the contrary – they were quite good! I will have to try them with a red sauce to see if they would be a good overall substitution for pasta, but used as a lomein or chow mein noodle, they are excellent.
