Organic Wild Rice Pasta
Rizopia will wake up your eyes and your taste buds
I dont know about you, but one of the toughest things about giving up wheat and gluten is giving up pasta. We knew we didnt want to do that, so as a result weve tried a lot of alternative rice and corn pastas, and have been lucky to find some that we really like. The traditional rice pastas are generally the best, so we tend to eat them regularly. However, another tasty option for those avoiding gluten is Rizopia Organic Wild Rice Pasta.
Wild rice isnt actually a grain at all, but a member of the grass family. In Rizopia Organic Wild Rice pasta, the wild rice is combined with regular brown rice in order to make the pasta. This pasta is a dream come true for allergic families with fussy children. First of all, its gluten-free, wheat-free, egg-free, sodium-free and cholesterol-free. So its suitable for people with a wide variety of allergies, because the pasta is manufactured in a facility that is both gluten-free and nut-free, so the issue of cross-contamination is virtually zero.
Rizopia organic wild rice pasta is more delicate than many of the other pastas weve tried, so you have to be careful about how long you cook it for, or else it can become a soggy mess. Id recommend cooking Rizopia pasta for no more than 7 minutes. This time limit will give you a nice al dente pasta texture. This organic wild rice pasta also has a distinctive nutty flavour that we find really compliments a hearty marinara sauce.
In addition, Rizopia Organic Wild Rice Pasta has a distinctive color that can lend some eye-popping variety to your dining. In fact, organic pasta is the same color as dark black squid ink pasta. While it may look a bit different, the taste is quite suitable for fussy diners like children.
An additional plus of Rizopia, is that this pasta has more protein than regular pastas. In our house, this is a definite benefit. Like most parents, we are always thinking about our sons diet, and a little more protein cant hurt an active child!
Our favourite sauce to use with Rizopia Organic Wild Rice Pasta is a roasted garlic and tomato sauce with meat. This serves up a satisfying meal, complimented by a salad and suitable gluten-free bread. My foremost recommendation for pasta sauce is Antico Organic Roasted Garlic sauce, which avoids most of the common allergens - including soy but contains all organic ingredients for a great taste. Add a bit of your own sauted ground beef, and you are all set! Rizopia pasta is the basis for a complete allergy-friendly meal that can be prepared in as little as half an hour - including salad and bread.
