Homemade GlutenFree Chickpea Pasta

Homemade GlutenFree Chickpea Pasta

So with my nephews recent discovery of gluten intolerance, I've decided to embark on trailing and testing new found gluten free goodies. Yesterday I tried out this recipe adapted from Snixy Kitchen, only I adapted the recipe with what I had in the fridge. 

Ingredients

  • 2-¾ cups sifted chickpea flour (300g)*
  • ¼ cup tapioca starch (35g)
  • ¼ cup sorghum wheat flour 
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 3 large eggshells used 
  • 1 ½ tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Water, as needed
  • All-Purpose GF Flour (Bob's Red Mills), for rolling out (or more chickpea flour)

Directions

Sift the flours and xanthan gum into a bowl, add the salt and make a well in the centre. Add the eggs into the centre and using a fork, whisk the mixture. Keep whisking until a thick paste forms. Using your hand begin to knead the dough into a pliable ball, keep adding water as needed. Make sure the dough is neither too dry or too moist. 

Once the dough consistency is a ball, cover with a  wet cloth and keep in the fridge for 30 minutes. After the dough has rested. Divide into 6 balls. Begin to add flour and roll out. Using a pasta machine, place dough into level 1, fold in half and repeat. Then keep rolling out the dough until level 4. From this point, you may cut the noodles into spaghetti or linguine. 

The pasta takes 3 to 4 minutes to cook in salted boiling water. So make sure you taste it before taking it out of the water. Once out of the water you can sauté  it with ghee and some okra, pumpkin, cayenne pepper and cheese.

"We really wanted to create a food that had only one ingredient and 
at the same time was wholesome, nutritious, and great for the body."

Tom Friedmann and his wife Ellie have always been on the lookout for healthy, new innovative ways to eat. Since his retirement, he has been looking for something in the food business to occupy his time, as well help mankind survive old age by eating healthy and disease free.

Hence, his journe began. In 2005, Tom spent three weeks at Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida where he learnt how to become green, raw, and nutritarian. It was through this journey that Tom and his wife discovered that meat was not necessary for great health and that it could be replaced by Legumes, which are Lentils, Beans, Garbanzos and Peas.

So evolved the search and process for such a product and eight years later, Tom and his wife are proud to introduce to the world "TOLERANT", a single ingredient product line composed of legumes cut into popular pasta shapes, certified ORGANIC, GLUTEN FREE, and NON-GMO.

TOLERANT is looking forward to contributing to your health!
