POP Nutrition | Tomato, Mushroom and Spinach with Mung Bean Fettuccine

Hi guys,

Everyone likes pasta, and today we will have a whole bowl. And here is a kicker this will be a low-carb meal. How? You wonder. Well Mung Bean Linguini have only 17 carbs compared with regular pasta, which is 38carbs. Plus, it has 25 grams of protein so you can eat them alone and get all the protein you want without the meat if you are a vegetarian, and add other health benefits to the list – high potassium contents, low glycemic, high in magnesium, and high in fiber. In other words a long list of benefits to make an excuse and eat that pasta bowl today. I would say it does have s slight bean flavor not too much though and you can always do half and half – half brown rice pasta and half Mung Bean pasta for a vibrant color variation.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Mung Bean Fettuccine
  • 2 tomatoes, diced
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/2 tsp. rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic granules
  • 1/2 cup cheese, shredded

Cooking steps:

  1. In a heavy bottom pan add tomatoes, onions, cilantro, mushrooms, and spinach. Saute for 7 min.
  2. To prepare Mung Bean Fettuccine: boil water. Add Mung Bean Fettuccine, cover and turn of the heat. They will be ready in 8 min.
  3. Add pasta and cheese to the sauce, simmer for another 2-3 min. Enjoy!
