Cooking Gluten-Free Pasta

 

Learn the trick to cooking gluten-free pasta.  Otherwise, you can end up with a gummy, all stuck together mound of mush!

 

Add the pasta to boiling water and stir occasionally. Timing is key. For brown rice pasta like Trader Joe’s or Tinkyada Brown Rice Spaghetti or pasta, 8 minutes works well. It’s important to stir the pasta often while cooking as the noodles tend to stick together.  Gluten-Free pasta can turn to mush quickly if overcooked, making it very unappealing.

 

Test the pasta for softness before draining to see if more time is needed. As the pasta is cooked, it can look gummy and soupy. Draining and rinsing the pasta well under cool water takes care of this.
