Gluten free quinoa pasta

    1 hour 7 min

    Anyone following a gluten free diet knows it's so easy to get tired of the same old thing so I wanted to make some pasta using quinoa flour since it has such a great flavour.

    5 people made this

    Serves: 4 

    • 125g quinoa flour
    • 160g rice flour
    • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
    • 1 teaspoon dried basil (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary (optional)
    • 1 teaspoon dried oregano (optional)
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 80ml water
    • 1 teaspoon olive oil
    • 5 tablespoons rice flour, divided

    1. Mix quinoa flour, 160g rice flour, xanthan gum, basil, rosemary, oregano and salt together in a large bowl; make a well in the centre.
    2. Whisk eggs and egg yolk together in a small bowl. Mix in water and olive oil. Pour into the well in the flour mixture; mix thoroughly until a dough forms.
    3. Lightly dust a work surface with 2 1/2 tablespoons rice flour. Knead dough until smooth and elastic, 8 to 12 minutes. Cover dough and let rest, about 10 minutes.
    4. Divide dough into 4 equal pieces. Dust work surface with remaining 2 1/2 tablespoons rice flour. Roll each piece of dough out into thin squares. Let dough rest, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
    5. Roll each square of dough up loosely; slice into 1cm pieces. Unroll sheets of pasta.
    6. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Cook pasta until tender yet firm to the bite, about 2 minutes.

    Thank you so much for posting this recipe! I used Sorghum flour vs rice just to take the healthy noodles up a notch. I toasted the quinoa then ground it in my blender to make the flour, it turned out great! I only boiled the pasta for about a minute, I was afraid it would fall apart. Next time I'll cook it for longer to see how it works out. The noodles were dry and broke more easily than regular pasta but...WHO CARES - a VAST improvement over Zucchini Noodles lol I really loved this and will definitely be making it over and over again - thank you!  -  27 Apr 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Works perfectly! I used half for lasagna and the other half just lightly boiled and then tossed with tomato sauce. Excellent in both recipes. Thank you for the recipe.  -  28 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
