Goldbaum’s sent me this gluten free brown rice spaghetti to try out, and I was really curious how it would compare to my stand by favorite, Tinkyada Brown Rice Spaghetti. That is some pretty steep competition! These noodles sell for $2.99 for a one pound bag.
First, I Iiked that these noodles cooked faster than Tinkyada pasta. I cooked these gluten free spaghetti noodles for nine minutes and I found this time to be perfect if you like an al dente pasta.
The noodles were chewy, but soft, and withstood the fork test easily. When I twirled the noodles around on my fork, they did not break or split and held their shape beautifully. As you can see from the photo above, these brown rice noodles gripped the marinara sauce amazingly well. I was really impressed.
The flavor is mild and would pair well with any sauce and would be ideal in many recipes.
Overall, these gluten free noodles seemed almost exactly like al dente wheat pasta! I would be happy to stock them in my own pantry to use for my whole (picky eating) family.
Pros: fast cooking time, grips sauce, pleasant flavor, flexible, affordable
Cons: if you want a softer noodle, the cooking time will be longer
Rating: 5 stars
