Green Lentil and Edamame Noodles

I am a great fan of noodles and have it regularly. In days of yore, I used to visit Chinese restaurants to savour noodles. Until I became aware that most noodles use maida (all purpose flour). So, I began checking with the cooks at Chinese restaurants. And never found one which served a WFPB noodle. I then resolved to make my own at home – not the noodles, but the dishes. I found a shop which sold various varieties of whole wheat noodles and pasta. Was I delighted! The shop is located in a crowded market with narrow lanes and large crowds. Given the pandemic, visiting this shop proved to be challenge, especially since I had to drive 40 km to reach it.
Recently, my doctor recommended a brand called Pink Harvest. Made from either besan (chickpea flour) or whole moong and edamame. I immediately set out to order online. And prepared my favourite dish. The taste was a little different – but delicious indeed. I am so glad that I now have an alternative that is not only packed with health, but gluten-free to boot.
