What Is Palmini?

  • Palmini pasta is an amazing pasta substitute made from the heart of the palm plant.
  • Hearts of palm look similar to a banana, but when cut into spaghetti- or lasagna-like noodles, they are the perfect low carb sub for your typical starchy pasta.
  • Palmini has more of a vegetable-like texture than traditional pasta, but their mild taste makes them the perfect way to get all the deliciousness of a pasta dish, but without the carbs.
  • Even better, Palmini comes precooked. Just add your favorite sauce, heat, and serve!
  • Palmini is not only low in carbs (4g per serving!), it’s also low in calories and naturally gluten-free.

How To Use It

Palmini’s website has a ton of recipes for palmini. Palmini ramen? Palmini mac & cheese? Yes, please!

We also think these recipes would be incredible using Palmini:

Whole30 Spaghetti and Meatballs (Paleo)
Sub out the zoodles. Palmini holds up super well in sauce and doesn’t get mushy like other pasta alternatives.

Cottage Cheese Alfredo

Whole30 Cup Zoodles (Whole30 Snack, Paleo)

Vegan Alfredo Sauce
Try it on top of your Palmini for a very veggie Vegan dinner.

Tuscan Shrimp (Whole30, Paleo)
Instead of cauliflower rice, serve over a heaping helping of Palmini.
