Jovial makes the best grain-free, gluten-free pasta by far.
This pasta is a great alternative for those on AIP diets, with gluten or grain sensitivities or for people with digestive issues. The taste and texture are fantastic, not to mention the package is a great size and will comfortably feed a family of 4. I use this pasta in both orzo bakes and orzo salads, both of which I have found store really well in the fridge.
It's so difficult to find wheat-free orzo pasta, and now I have. These are great for soups or just with sauce or butter. A little goes a very long way, too. Taste is great and texture is wonderful, I can enjoy that al dente aspect that I require. I will be buying more!
My go to when I want to eat pasta but my Paleo diet doesn't allow it. Now that I can have a pasta that tastes and feels like a real pasta I no longer feel that is missing from my life. Thank you Jovial. It is more expensive so it is used as a treat and none goes to waste.
I don't realize that 8 oz package for orzo is quite small, but it's enough to make a meal for 4 people. It's tasty and my son who is gluten intolerant can enjoy it without any problem. I followed the instruction of the box, and cooked orzo with mushroom after I boiled it. The end result was rather dry. Next time, I will try cooking it directly with the broth and mushroom to have a creamier result. Will definitely purchase this again.
I really liked this orzo! It tastes good and takes on the flavor of what it's cooked with. I was able to get two uses out of the box. It's not a very large box, but the size of the pasta itself is very small. It works well if you follow the cooking instructions, which can be a tiny bit of a PITA to drain the water at the end because the water gets a bit "gluey". It can be a little gummy, but that's the nature of anything made from cassava and it's important to be aware of that going into this. I appreciate the minimal ingredient list (only 2, cassava and water). I enjoyed this product and would buy this again. It's a high-quality product from a brand that I trust.
I am doing the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP), and I only use Jovial pasta. This was the first time I’ve used the orzo and I made sure to cook it in a large pot. It turned out fantastic. Jovial cassava pasta is the way to go!
