This recipe was birthed through necessity and a little inspiration from Bon Appetit… with an AIP Paleo twist (of course). Getting scrappy is the name of the game right now… and I’m not about to sacrifice any flavor or nutrition in the process! This is not your mama’s boring tuna and pasta dish… don’t be fooled by the simple ingredients– it’s delicious!
You may be wondering what this pasta is made out of… it’s AIP? It’s Low-carb? AND from your pantry? It doesn’t seem possible… does it?
I’m using Hearts of Palm Pasta that I’ve been obsessed with lately and I must urge you to try it!
The Heart of Palm is a crunchy vegetable harvested from the center of the cabbage palm tree and is a smart paleo + AIP pantry staple. You can normally find them sliced up and canned, added raw to salads (used almost like olives). The taste is similar to an artichoke, it’s mild and very versatile. Hearts of Palm pasta is essentially the same, just spiraled into pasta form! Here’s the brand I’ve been using which I grabbed off of Amazon. It takes just 5 minutes to heat on the stove or 2 minutes in the microwave, how’s that for quick and convenient?
It’s also very nutritious! One serving is packed with important minerals like potassium, phosphorus, copper, and zinc with 4g of fiber (bonus, it’s low-carb).
