For our latest non-traditional noodle, we’ve taken a break from the legumes and alternate grains and gone for something we think is truly unique: Trader Joe’s Hearts of Palm Pasta! Tender, mild-tasting, hearts of palm come from the center of palm trees. Our Ecuadorian supplier takes special care to use only palms that have been cultivated specifically for heart harvesting. With their sustainable process, the palms are not cut down, which avoids endangering the trees.
Harvested Hearts are cut into thin, white strands, using a special process. Nothing is added to this mild- flavored Pasta, which means it’s ideal for heating and tossing with a variety of different sauces. Go Italian with some marinara or take things in an Asian direction by making Palm Hearts Pad Thai. Trader Joe’s Hearts of Palm Pasta even works well in your chicken noodle soup!
