Frequently Asked Questions About Palm Heart Noodles

What is hearts of palm pasta?

Palm pasta is a lower-carb, gluten-free, veggie alternative to traditional noodles. Made from hearts of palm, these noodles pair perfectly with most sauces, and unlike other veggie noodles, require zero extra cooking time. For this recipe, we used Hearts of palm linguine from Palmini.

What does hearts of palm pasta taste like?

Palm heart pasta has a similar taste to an artichoke. While not overwhelming, the slightly savory taste pairs well with robust, vegetable or tomato-based sauces.

How do I prepare hearts of palm pasta?

Simply rinsing and draining the noodles out of the package in a colander will suffice if you’re short on time, but if you have a few minutes to spare, consider this helpful tip from the folks at Palmini. After rinsing your noodles, sit them in milk for 15 minutes. This quick trick will remove any undesirable odor from the pasta.
