#ADGifted I was delighted to receive a box full from the ZENB plant-based range!
ZENB comes from the word zenbu – the Japanese expression for whole. This is because they embrace as much of the whole plant as possible to provide an easier way to live a plant-fuelled balanced lifestyle.
ZENB is an online plant-powered food brand, who are passionate about their commitment to plant-based meals. Their whole-plant approach also offers an array of irresistible pasta and ragu sauces. This along with Agile Bowls brings a new dimension to meals.
We were sent a special limited-edition box full of ZENB’s plant-based deliciousness to see what we thought. This included a range of ZENB Pasta, Sauces and Agile Bowls.
The star of their glistening range of products is the Yellow Pea Pasta, UK’s first pasta to be completely made from this powerful legume. Yellow peas take less water and fertiliser to grow than durum wheat.
ZENB Pastas are
- High in Protein
- High in Fibre
- Source of Iron
- High in Potassium
- High in Phosphorus
- Gluten Free
- Have No Additives of Preservatives
We received the following Pastas made from 100% yellow peas:
- Pasta Agile – quick cook pasta
- And Spaghetti
How we found ZENB Pasta
Honestly it was so easy to cook, no more effort than any other pasta. Our one son tried a bit without any sauce and wasn’t convinced. Personally I am not sure if that’s just because he knew. We didn’t tell our other son and he ate it fine! We thought it did taste slightly different but it was okay.
ZENB Gourmet Sauces
The ZENB Gourmet Sauces are a delicious vibrant blend of vegetables, herbs and seasonings. The perfect pairing for the ZENB Pasta, or a way to add culinary excitement. Each sauce is one of your 5 a day, with no added sugar; a good source of fibre and are gluten free.
