Buy now: Organic chickpea flour risoni 10 x 1 kg
Rice is a central element in many Asian and African cultures. In Madagascar, friendship translates as "rice and water". We knew early on that we needed to have rice in our online shop. Along with classics, such as our basmati rice, jasmine rice and risotto rice, we also like new and tasty alternatives. That's why we now have something special for you: our chickpea flour risoni!
Looks like rice, tastes like pasta
You can call it what you want: the flavourful product is called kritharaki, orzo or manestra in Greece while Italians prefer risoni or risi. It is also often called Greek pasta in other countries. Traditionally, risoni is made from wheat flour semolina and water, but you know we like to try out new things :). We used legumes for our risoni, more specifically, 100 % chickpea flour. This gives the pasta a lot of power, with 3 times more protein than conventional white rice* and 6 times more fibre**! The carbohydrate content is also lower, with 51 g compared to 77 g with regular rice. Convincing on all fronts!
Using risoni pasta as a rice substitute
Preparing risoni is very easy: use 1 litre of lightly salted water for 100 g of risoni. Bring the water to a boil, add the risoni and stir occasionally until you reach the desired consistency (3-4 minutes should be enough). Then drain the pasta and that's it: you have a tasty rice substitute!
Tasty rice recipes with risoni
It's usual to greet people with the phrase "Have you already eaten rice today?" in countries such as China, Thailand, Nepal, Vietnam and Bangladesh. Have you eaten rice today? If not, we'll give you some recipe ideas you should try! For colder days, how about a tasty vegetable coconut curry with peanut butter or an easy winter curry? Sometimes, a simple fried rice with some tofu and tomato sauce also does the trick. Our rice alternative is great both as a main course as well as a side dish. Try it and taste for yourself!
