Andean Dream’s Organic Quinoa-Rice Pasta cooks and tastes more like the “real” pasta I was used to eating before being diagnosed with celiac disease.
I had seven people test the pasta with me. We all agreed. We introduced the pasta to those not on a GF diet, and they couldn’t tell it was GF pasta—that’s final test that really convinced me that this was some of the best GF pasta we have ever had. Absolutely delicious.
Andean Dream also offers a line of Organic Quinoa Cookies, which are higher in protein, lower in sugar, and higher in fiber than most cookies. They run on dry side, but some people prefer that texture. The flavors are light and the cookies actually taste healthy, so you feel as if you can eat a few and it’s okay. They come in a box, each cookie individually wrapped to maintain freshness—a smart decision for boxed cookies, which all too often go stale before they are consumed.
Unique to this company is the source of their quinoa. Their royal quinoa is from southern Bolivia, close to a mineral-rich lake, lending to the nutrients of the soil to the quinoa and accounting for its exceptional taste over other quinoa.
My testers and staff feel the pasta was the product they’re all going convert to from now on. There were mixed feelings about the cookies, but of a large “taste party,” the cookies were well-received and loved by many.
