I searched far and wide for an easy to make gluten free pasta without a million ingredients. I found a limited number of recipes and they were all Rice Flour based. The other thing I found bothersome was that most of these recipes stated that the pasta had to be hand cut. I don’t know about you guys- but I sure as heck was not ready to say Goodbye to my Lovely Red Hand Crank Pasta machine.
So here is where we Insert Millet Flour. Oh how I love it. Cooked millet is a favorite in our household -I like to say that it has a slight ” buttery corn bread” flavor to it. It is a great source of Protein, essential amino Acids and Fiber. And to top everything off its easy to digest. For those out there like myself with a sensitive digestive system- Millet is a God Send. I usedStone Ground Whole Grain Millet Flour.
It was super important to me that EVERYONE with any food allergy or intolerance could partake in this fun recipe so I created 2 versions.
Therecipe is where I began. It is Gluten/Dairy/Soy/Rice/Corn free but contains eggs. This dough is incredible. Treat it like the old fashioned semolina dough- its just as tough! Roll it Crank it- Do whatever you want to it.
The Second version is my. This version naturally is Gluten/Dairy/Soy/Rice/Corn/Egg Free. This dough is a tad bit sensitive compared to its eggy counterpart. Treat it gently as you crank it through your pasta machine. The end results will please you!
Happy Pasta Making!
