Chickpea "Pasta"



Recommended Posts

I Take carbs and subtract Fiber for my working number - 1 cup of broccoli has 6 g carbs and 2.4 fiber so I roll with 3.6 net carbs and 31 calories. Note I am 6 years post surgery and in mo longer in loss mode - just maintaining.

@moonbeam, if you're talking about Shirataki noodles, IMHO, if you keep your expectations reasonable, they are ok in some cases. They need to be rinsed VERY well and then I heat them in a non-stick pan to further dry them. They take on the flavor of whatever you make with them. I like them best as spaghetti as they take on the flavor of the Pasta Sauce.

Anyone ever try the carbanada Pasta? on Amazon? I tried it pre surgery and didn’t think it was bad but there weren’t as many servings in the bag as it said so I had to recalculate the calories. I think some of the noodles broke in shipping so more fit into the measuring cup and it threw off the serving size.

That's why I weigh everything - then it doesn't matter how much the "contents may settle during shipping". Since I'm just 3 weeks from surgery, most surgery centers tell you to do volume, but my center just said "no one can tell you how much to eat". So I'm weighing everything so I can figure out the Protein.

miracle noodles not impossible. Bought them later in the week I'll try em. Wonder how many days it will take to finish the whole bag.[emoji849] there's all different kinds of these. This just happened to be the one I bumped into first. I bet the plain ones are like the other commenter said and take on the flavor which is great definitely going to try those shiitake mushroom noodles sooner than later. 20211009_171003.jpg

Is there a trick to cooking the chickpea Pasta? I cooked it according to directions and it was still very chewy. Compared to pasta it would be about half done. Does it just not get to the consistency of aldente pasta? Should I cook longer than directions state?? I really want to like it but so far it’s not even close to pasta to me.

      Hello everyone.. I had my surgery on Sept 30th 2021.. and it has been an horrible experience to me. I can't hold down fluids or soft food. so much mucus is coming up!! and I'm spitting all day. I'm so sad over this journey. is anyone having this same issue? if so, what are you doing about it.

      Tomorrow is the big day! Getting sleeved in the morning and possibly spending a dark and stormy night in the hospital after. I'm actually excited about that because rain on wedding days and birthdays is considered a sign of good luck- so wouldn't a commitment of re-birth qualify as well?
      Can't wait to see y'all on the other side!

      Hope everyone's doing ok so far.
      Incidence numbers are on the raise again and hospitals need to treat more COVID patients again. Looking with some kind of dread towards autumn/winter season.

        I am post op day 2 now , you’re there pretty much the whole day. They send you home with a lot of support. Are you local to Birmingham and driving in for the surgery or staying at a hotel in the area?

      Doing to much protein can make you gain weight? Because I gain 3 pound one day and I’m so frustrated 😭🥺 I did a hard work to be in 220 😭😭
