How To Boil Pasta
Pasta comes in different shapes and sizes. It is a staple in Italian cooking and is usually made with some sort of flour and eggs. Thankfully, many supermarkets now carry vegan options! We often use Explore Asian Bean Pastas because they are certified vegan and contain between 20 to 25 grams of protein per serving! They can be found in your local Stop & Shop or Wholefoods. Wholefoods (and its 365 Everyday Value brand) also carry their own vegan pastas.
Boiling pasta is VERY easy. All you need is water, oil, a pot and a stove.
Turn stove on medium heat. Add water to a pot large enough to hold the type of pasta you are planning on cooking. Wait for water to boil. It usually takes about 10 minutes.
Add a teaspoon of oil (we prefer using extra virgin olive oil) to prevent pasta from sticking to the pot and each other.
Add the pasta. Cook time depends on the type of pasta and brand you are using. Rice, whole grain, gluten-free, and bean pastas tend to cook much faster than regular ones.
Place colander in the sink and drain pasta by pouring all the contents of pot onto the colander. Try not to rinse the pasta with water afterwards because the starch in the water helps sauce adhere to the pasta.
