Explore Asian organic Black Bean Spaghetti

I would really like to recommend this stuff to those of you who eat beans. It has 17 g of carbs with 12g of fiber, for 5 net carbs, and it is incredibly filling. I make up a bag of it (4 servings) and keep it in the fridge and add it to broth for soup or top with one of my LC sauce creations. It is a pretty straightforward 1:2 ratio, dry to cooked, so 116 g cooked spaghetti is about 180 calories. With sauce (i make very low calorie sauces) about 200 calories for something that will keep you nice and full for a long time. For my evening meal, I add a bunch of cauliflower and broccoli snipped small. Netrition sells it, although I bought a case at that big online retailer.

enjoy!

Great idea, Ouis. I bet it has a lot of resistant starch and will not spike blood sugar. Thanks for the tip.

I guess you can post netrition links....Explore Asian Organic Black Bean Spaghetti

There is a soy version, but this is regular black beans...you can never be sure when something says "Asian". A ton of fiber indeed! Thanks, oius, have to try these.

Thanks, Oiuzoid! Do you prefer using these to Konjac/gluc noodles? Also--- thanks so much for all of the wonderful recipes that you share here! I've printed out quite a few and will be trying some of them soon!

I much prefer these noodles. they have a nice bite to them. they are not soft and slippery, more substantial and no fishy flavour. I hope the NI can be trusted. Glad you like my recipes Kimmie!

From what I understand, the U.S. is the only country that labels fiber included
in the carb count, then states a value that you can subtract to figure "net carbs".
I looked up the "Explore Asian" website, and on their "Contact Us" page,
their HQ address is in Israel. Makes me wonder if the fiber might already be
subtracted?

I wondered the same thing pami. I would love to know the real carb count. If it is actually this low it is a real carb bargain. Either way it is very filling.

ouizoid, you have it, right? Does the package say anything like "Packaged
in the USA" or "Product of Israel" or any thing that might be a clue?

looks like it is a product of China, imported from Australia--so maybe 17 net carbs?

I looked this up on other sites where they report only 0.5g fibre - but the consensus of opinion is that that may also be a typo for 5g. It seems people contacted the distributor but didn't receive any clarification. Maybe Netrition might be able to check for a US customer?

I wondered if this was based on black soy beans which would make sense of the protein and high fibre count reported but they actually call another product a soy bean spaghetti, albeit that one seems to be the yellow soybean.

yesterday I also purchased locally their mung bean fettuccine (which is fabulous). They have now changed that label to reflect 17 g carbs and 11 g fiber which would appear to mean 6 net carbs (if it reflects net carbs). This is a big change from their former label which had .5 fiber. So, the company is changing the NI, and the truth is far from clear. Regardless, for those judders looking for a filling meal for less than 200 calories, I recommend the stuff. However, I too would like clarification.

This sound heavenly for someone who hasn't had pasta in almost two years! Does it taste like pasta (spaghetti that you can eat with marinara) or is it more of an Asian noodle taste?

definitely more asian, sort of like buckwheat noodles. chewy and dense, but really good with a sauce. Plus, a little really does go a long way in terms of satisfaction.

I think they sell this brand at Whole Foods so I'm going to check it out! Maybe I could use this in a pad thai recipe on up days. I miss pad thai like nobody's business. Thanks for the rec!

yes, I would really like to hear how they impact weight loss for those who use them. I am not having any problem with them, but who knows--everyone is so individual. They are delicious!

I'd very much like to try the noodles but the only source that I can find in the UK wants the equivalent of $55 for a 6 pack of noodles plus $15 for shipping so I'll wait until DH is next on a business trip to the US.

I finally made these tonight. They were perfect for my MD dinner. Served them with a pat of butter and some grated parmesean cheese and it was delicious! Not exactly the same as regular pasta, but I haven't had regular pasta in a very long time so it was delicious to me. At under 300 calories for the whole filling meal, these will surely become a regular staple in my diet. Thanks for the rec!

Black bean noodles

I tried these , just boiling in salted water, then tossing in Parmesan cheese and butter......they were good, but that cheese refused to stick to them !!
I gathered was because of the complete lack of starch? That it prevented the cheeses from sticking to them?
So next time I will add some cream.
This is my DH favourite dish using Dream-fields.
But I think it would be great with spaghetti sauce.....I make mine with pork or lamb ground.

Heads up: Check out the netrition link below. Their nutritional values have been corrected.

In a portion size of 56 grams they now show total carbs as 29g and fiber as 12g. In other words net carbs are 17g now.

That makes sense to me if you look at the carb count for regular black beans. As mentioned earlier, the only way that could have been possible is if they were made from Black Soya Beans. A much lower carb count bean. And quite tasty, I may add...
