Coconut Edamame Spaghetti ~ Day 130

I picked up a box of this edamame (soy bean) spaghetti from Costco.  They are gluten-free, high in protein and fiber, low in carbs and calorie.   It's a great alternative for a regular pasta for a change and it takes less than five minutes to cook.  Because the spaghetti itself is pretty bland dressing it up gets easier with endless possibilities.  I made this simple and delicious coconut spaghetti and a spicy coconut mango curry to go with it.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Serves: 3-4

  • Edamame spaghetti - 8 oz
  • Freshly grated coconut- 1 cup
  • Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
  • Urad dal - 2 tsp
  • Broken cashews - 2 tbsp
  • Red chillis - 4, broken
  • Asafoetida - a pinch
  • Salt - to taste
  • Curry leaves -few
  • Coconut oil - 2 tbsp

  1. Cook the spaghetti according to the package instruction.  Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a skillet.  Splutter mustard seeds and fry the urad dal and cashews until golden brown.
  3. Add the red chilies, asafoetida, and curry leaves.  Add the coconut and fry until it turns light golden.  
  4. Remove from the heat.   Add the cooked spaghetti along with salt and toss to combine.
  5. Serve warm with your choice of spicy curry / gravy.  I served it with spicy coconut mango curry.
