Dindi Roman first became curious about making her own pasta in 2016 when she saw a story online about a mother who colored her pasta using vegetables to get her son to eat more veggies.
Roman tells us that her son is her inspiration for Dindi’s Kitchen. If it wasn’t for him, she never would have thought to make her own pasta at all, she says.
Her rainbow-colored pastas are all colored using vegetables and superfoods: beets for red, carrots for orange, turmeric for yellow, moringa for green, and blue pea for blue. She also offers boutique pasta flavors including chocolate, garlic herb, lemon pepper, and pepper, which can easily just be served mixed in with some olive oil or butter. You can even make a special request for keto-pasta from Roman.
Fresh pastas cook more quickly than store-bought ones, at approximately 5-7 minutes; Roman tells us to always check on the pasta every minute past the 3-minute mark to make sure it’s got your preferred amount of bite (she prefers it al dente so she removes it sooner rather than later).
Roman likes to toss in butter, parmesan and chili flakes for a quick 10-minute gourmet meal.
Roman began selling gluten-free, keto cookies and her fresh homemade pasta to other parents in early 2017, though it was the pasta that really took off with the parents as they were delighted to find out they were colored with vegetables and vitamins. The kids loved seeing their favorite colors in pasta form too. But the fun isn’t just for the kids—Roman tells us though the pasta is quite a workout to make thanks to endless kneading, she enjoys playing around with different shapes, sizes and colors, and seeing how they all turn out.
