bowl of pasta

Semolina Pasta Dough, eggless with Flax


Servings: 1/2+ pound
205 grams semolina flour
2 tbsp golden flax seed
6 tbsp warm water
+ in a spice grinder grind the flax seed until it is a fine powder
+ move the flax powder to a small bowl
+ mix the water into the flax powder until it begins to thicken (about one minute)
+ pour flour onto a clean surface
+ use a fork or your hands to make a well in the center of the flour
+ add the flax mixture into the well
+ using a fork incorporate small and increasing amounts of the flour into the flax mix until it is one big mess
+ kneed till consistent in texture
+ wrap in plastic wrap and rest for 30 min
+ run it through the pasta maker till you get to setting 5 if using this for fettuccine
! 100% semolina dough is very firm pasta. While plenty of other blends can be rolled out by hand this one is begging for a pasta machine to make the job easier.
Once you have it cut to the right size toss it in a pot of boiling salted water until it starts to boil. Boil for 90 seconds and drain the water off.

2 Tbsp olive oil

+ store in an air tight container for up to 5 days, toss in an silica gel packet if you have one and they will last longer
