The package of 'Soybeans are now pasta' looks like this.

The name is 'soy pasta'. Soybean flour, starch, salt and brewed vinegar are used as raw materials. Calories are 327kcal per bag (100g), protein is 15.6g, and fat is 10.7g. Carbohydrate is 44.9g, of which sugar is 44.9g and dietary fiber is 39.5g. (PDF file)

According to the Standard Tables of Food Composition in Japan , the calories of raw pasta noodles are 247 kcal per 100 g, the protein is 7.8 g, the fat is 1.9 g, and the carbohydrate is 46.9 g.

There are 2 bags of noodles divided into 100g pieces.

The noodles are not cylindrical but slightly flat. It's not dried noodles but half-raw noodles, so it's soft and soft.

I will boil the noodles immediately. First, add 1 liter of water and 1 bag of noodles to the pot.

Boil while stirring occasionally. At this time, it is not necessary to add salt.

When the water is boiling, boil for another 5-7 minutes. The total boiling time is about 7 to 9 minutes, so it's a little shorter than the dried noodle pasta, or it feels about the same.

After boiling, drain the water and serve on a plate.

First of all, I will eat a bite without sauce. The noodles seem to be derived from soybeans, and when they are chewed, they have a faint soybean scent. Wheat flour pasta has a smooth texture, but soybean pasta does not have a smooth texture, and it has a slightly grainy smoothness reminiscent of tofu. On the other hand, the softness and chewy texture that are characteristic of raw noodle pasta are firmly reproduced. Regarding the taste, many people said that it had a taste that was clearly different from that of wheat flour pasta, and that it was like tofu that had been drained of water.

However, I think that few people eat pasta with only noodles, so I tried using commercially available meat sauce purchased at a supermarket.

By applying meat sauce with a strong scent and taste, the tofu-like taste has almost disappeared, and it is in a state that does not make you feel uncomfortable as pasta. It has a soft finish with no stiffness, so it can be said that it is quite complete for those who are looking for pasta with raw noodles. For those who want to reduce sugar, but want to eat pasta, it can be said to be more practical.

'Soybeans are now pasta' is on sale at an open price (reference price 598 yen excluding tax).
