Traditional Greek hilopites are tasty noodles that look like fettuccine but come from the ancient Greek pasta, láganon. This delicious spelt version is bronze die-cut and made from robust spelt flour and the fresh spring water from the northern Greek village of Arávissos, where Agrozimi has been based for three generations.
Spelt (triticum spelta or dinkel) has a full flavor with nutty notes and a rough texture that holds sauce beautifully. A long-ago ancestor of today’s commercial wheat, spelt is more easily digested than common wheat, since its gluten has more water-soluble proteins, and spelt’s total protein content is up to 25% higher than most typical wheat varieties. Spelt is also an excellent source of iron, magnesium, zinc, vitamins B1 and B2, and beneficial fatty acids.
For the discerning pasta lover, Agrozimi offers products that recapture forgotten traditional ways and add experimental new flavors.
We love spelt hilopites as a wonderful base for vegan dishes. Their slightly nutty flavor can be enjoyed either plain or with a rich tomato sauce. You’ll find one on the inside of the label or simply toss your cooked pasta with one of Elli & Manos’ Greek Flavor Bursts. The 500gr. package translates to 1.1lbs., 10% more than the standard pasta packs. While there is a suggested cooking time on the pack, try it for yourself and cook to taste, especially if you like your pasta “al dente”.
