Chickpeas make delicious pasta - that’s why we used them to create Banza! We took a household favorite and made it even better, turning the pasta you love into the pasta that loves you back. With almost double the protein, 3X the fiber, and nearly 30% fewer carbs than traditional pasta, Banza is a meal you can feel good about serving and sharing. It’s also gluten-free and vegan, and packs 23G of protein in each serving, making it easy to cook a balanced meal in minutes.
Banza has been featured in TIME Magazine, The New York Times, Food & Wine, the Today Show, Good Morning America, Business Insider, BuzzFeed, The Huffington Post, and many others. Our pasta is a favorite among celebrities like Kristen Bell and Robin Roberts, and we bet it can win over your taste buds, too!
We use 4 natural non-GMO ingredients to make Banza: Chickpeas, Tapioca, Pea Protein, & Xanthan Gum. Each ingredient contributes to the delicious flavor and al-dente texture of our pasta which means it tastes just like the real deal.
Banza is prepared just like regular pasta (cook in salted water at a rolling boil, strain & rinse) and we recommend topping Banza with your favorite sauce. It will re-heat well for leftovers so you can easily use it to meal prep for the week ahead. So, go ahead - bake your ziti, mac your cheese, and pesto the rest-o because pasta night is back on the menu. We can’t wait to see what you whip up!
