Taste: 

 

chicakpea lasagne noodle dietitian review

 

Chickapea Lasagne noodles understandably have a chickpea flavour which I don’t mind but not everyone may like this. I found that this was not as noticeable when tested as part of the full lasagna recipe where there are a variety of competing flavours.

 

I found the cooked texture of Chickapea Lasagne noodles to be dryer than traditional pasta noodles and fall apart more easily.

 

Cost: 

 

$$$ – expensive.

 

The current cost (in Ontario) is $6.49 per box. Each box will make 1 lasagna.

 

Chickapea Lasagne noodles are a higher price point compared to traditional and gluten-free noodles. They are a similar price point to some other specialty noodle products. 

 

Would I buy this product again?

 

Overall, I love the nutrition profile and simple ingredients used in this product. I will purchase this product again to use as an added protein source in vegetarian lasagne recipes.
