How to Make Spelt Pasta [Vegan]

Not owning a pasta machine is no excuse for not making your own pasta. Grab your rolling pin, roll up your sleeves and get ready for one killer arm workout!




Ingredients

30g Wholemeal Spelt Flour (P)
Water


Directions


Add a little water to the flour and begin stirring

You want to be careful not to add too much otherwise the mix will become sticky



Once the flour reaches this consistency, remove from the bowl and begin kneading with your hands

Knead the dough for a few minutes and then roll into a ball


Cover with cling wrap and place in the fridge for 20-30 minutes to cool
(you can even make it the night before or in the morning)


Remove from the fridge and place between two pieces of baking paper


Grab a rolling pin and begin rolling out the dough


This may take some time, but keep at it until the dough is quite thin, around 1-2mm


Use a knife or, my favourite instrument, a pizza cutter to slice the pasta into fettuccine-like strips, or really any shape you like



Add to a pot of boiling water and cook for a few minutes until al dente



Serve with your favourite pasta sauce and a side salad

Makes 1 serve

I took some of the Mexican Tomato Soup I made again this week for my parents, added some tomato puree and used that as a pasta sauce. A strange combination, but surprisingly tasty!
