I wanted to love you...

...but alas, I didn't.  I kept hearing your name (brown rice pasta) pop up in blogs and healthy recipe sites, so  I knew I had to try you out.  I just wasn't that fond of your texture.  Mushy much?  Or maybe I need practice in cooking you.  Nevertheless, I will just stick to my regular old grocery store whole wheat pasta, which works for me seeing as I've only seen you at Whole Paycheck--er, Foods.  And since I'm not on that whole "gluten-free" bandwagon, no real need for me to stick with you.  Plus the whole wheat kind, too me, has the same texture and taste as regular pasta with just as much, if not more, fiber than you.  At least I tried!


  1. I wish I was in your shoes. have to use brown rice because of kiddos wheat allergies. Tinkyada makes the best brown rice pasta and just a side not you have to get the one that DOES NOT have rice bran. that creates the mushiness.

  2. Thx for the rec. I will give that brand a try some time. :)

  3. i'm gluten intolerant so i have to stay away from all things wheat. brown rice pasta isn't my favor, though; there's too much of a learning curve. i will agree with the above commenter and say that tinkyada's is by far the best that i've tried. but if you really want to try good gluten free pasta, try corn pasta or quinoa pasta. to me, they have the best taste and texture of all the various gluten free pasta options out there.

  4. Lol its definitley all in the way you cook it Nik. My 17yr old can cook brown rice pasta perfectly! He likes it way better than traditional pasta lol
    Try the brown rice penne or rotini its easier to cook properly :)

  5. Brown rice pasta? I have never seen this before! It sounds good in theory, though. I will have to pick some up and try it out...

  6. I've never heard of this one...but
    I hear you
    On this one!

  7. I think this is my first comment on your blog, but i just love it!

    Rice pasta is HORRIBLE!

    Nik, please try "Ancient Harvest" quinoa pasta it taste almost exactly like white pasta! My family loves white pasta but my stomach does not so i have to eat GF pasta! I am not one of those people who thinks tofu taste just like bacon so when i say something taste just like it..i swear it really does lol!

  8. Well, thanks for commenting!! :D I will definitely search for that quinoa pasta since you're the second person who's mentioned it. I'll let you guys know what I think!

  9. I absolutely loved this post! So funny and cute.


I read and appreciate all comments & questions!
