Fresh Chickpea Pasta

Once you try fresh pasta there's no going back - it has a lovely bite to it. Using chickpea pasta makes a high protein and high fiber pasta which needs no protein supplement to make it a full meal.


Ingredients

1 cup chickpea (besan) flour

1 tsp olive oil

1 egg

1-2 TB water


1. Placed the flour in the middle of a baking mat and then create a well in the middle. Pour the egg, olive oil, and some water into the well. Use a fork to combine the middle and then combine into the flour to form a dough.

2 . Knead for 3-5 minutes. Cover and allow dough to rest for at least 30 minutes. After rest, quarter dough.

3. Using a past roller, start at level 1 and roll sequentially until desired thinness.

4. For lasagna, stop here. For noodles, feed the dough strips through the noodle maker.
