What does "Namaste" mean?
Namaste (pronounced "Naa-Maa-Stay") is a Sanskrit word with no literal translation. In general it means "The Spirit within me honors and respects the Spirit within you."
What You Need:
3 Tablespoons Oil
Step 1: Add pasta to approximately 3 quarts of boiling, salted water. Cook for 7-10 minutes or until desired tenderness (do not overcook). Drain. Do no rinse.
Step 2: (You can do this step while waiting for the pasta if you like). Heat 3 tablespoons oil (more or less to taste) in pan. Add contents of seasoning packet and drained pasta. Toss and voila! Eat as is or try one of these variations!
Variations: You can add any number of things in Step 2 to make a new creation every time. Try adding black beans, corn, cilantro, onion, black olives, red or green peppers, salsa, ground beef, chopped cooked chicken and on and on!
Makes 4 side dish servings or 2 entree servings.
A Note About Shelled Hemp Seed
Shelled Hemp Seed is an excellent source of easily digestible, gluten-free protein. Its overall protein content is better than that found in nuts, dairy products, meat, fish and poultry. (And it tastes delicious)! Hemp seed provides both of the essential fatty acids needed in the human diet- linoleic and alpha-linoleic, as well as a complement of all essential acids.
Brown rice pasta (brown rice flour, water), shelled hemp seed, salt, tomato powder, paprika, onion, garlic, oregano, ground red pepper and silicon dioxide (to prevent caking).
Made in a dedicated facility free of: Wheat, soy, corn, potato, peanuts, tree nuts, dairy and casein.

iHerb Customer Reviews
The flavor is very good and a bit spicy, which I liked. Made me feel like I wasn't missing out by being gluten/dairy free. Noodles were a bit chewy and I tried eating the leftovers cold the next day like a cool pasta salad, but I wouldn't recommend that. Noodles were way too hard. Would probably buy again. Wish the price wasn't so high. I got two servings out of it. Take a look at my page to see over 100 real reviews from products I've purchased and tested here at Iherb!
I add cooked ground beef & top with salsa to make a quick dinner. The seasoning makes it very tasty. Pasta sometimes is a little too "starchy."
