My mom came to visit from out of town this week. She eats a gluten-free diet. I always stress out a little trying to figure out what to make while she’s here. This time I had a box of Seapoint Farms Edamame pasta on hand that I wanted to try. Its a good gluten-free option to regular pasta and as a bonus, it’s high in protein. I’m always trying to boost the protein intake for my kids since they are athletes but picky eaters. One of my easy go-to recipes is Chicken Pesto Pasta made in my Instant Pot. Since these “noodles” are a little different I knew I’d need to adjust the cooking time and had to just guess. Normally I cook at high pressure for 4 minutes but I adjusted it down to 3 and it worked!
First I started by cooking cubed chicken seasoned with italian seasoning in the Instapot on saute mode. Once it was cooked, I added the Edamame Fettuccine on top and covered with 4 cups of chicken broth. I set the pot to sealing and cooked for 3 minutes at high pressure. When the time was up I did a quick release, added a jar of pesto and mixed together. It came out pretty well! I garnish with some fresh grated parmesan and it’s ready to eat! I was pleasantly surprised how it turned out. The noodles are a little thin and have a little bit of a different texture than what we are used to but they tasted good!
Edamame is naturally gluten-free and low calorie, contains no cholesterol and is an excellent source of protein, iron, and calcium. It is also an excellent source of protein for those who follow a plant-based diet or just need an additional source of protein. Seapoint Farms Organic Edamame pasta comes in Fettuccine and Spaghetti. They also offer a variety of other products! Be sure to check them out at www.seapointfarms.com.
