Cozy Bowl Noodles | Taro 'Uala Lumache
ʻUlu, or breadfruit, is one of the highest yielding food trees on the planet. One tree can live for decades and produce 100-200 fruits each year (that’s hundreds of thousands of pounds annually!). Cozy Bowl Noodles not only utilizes the superfood ʻulu in their plant-based, grain-free noodles, but does so on a local scale, sourcing entirely from the island of Kauaʻi.
Meet the Makers
Dominique Chambers, a pasty chef and cook for over fifteen years, loves to find new kitchen “toys” to play with. In September of 2020, she bought a pasta extruder on a whim and fell in love with her homemade ‘ulu noodles on first bite. She begins with fresh or dried ʻulu sifted with a small amount of cassava flour, then combines with a special vegan “egg” made with blended aquafaba and kuzu root. She lets the dough hydrate then hand rolls it into intriguingly-shaped pasta or extrudes it in her pasta press. Buon appetito, Hawaiian-style.
