[Sorry ignore previous thread-reposted to clarify my question]<br><br>
Have you made your own vegan pasta noodles <b><i>from SCRATCH</i></b>? If so, what's your recipe?<br><br><br><br>
I have a Samson juicer that has a pasta nodule (totally forgot about this until the other day) and tried to make my own rice pasta from scratch. Yuck. Came out horrible. So, back to the drawing board and search engines for me. *sigh*<br><br><br><br>
Per chance...Has anyone tried making a gluten-free vegan pasta from scratch? Had any success?<br><br><br><br>
I've tried various searches to see if anyone had already posted a successful recipe... but... to no avail. So far.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, what's your experience been making a vegan pasta (gluten-free or not)?

I thought I saw someone's ravioli recipe on here somewhere. I want to say Pumpkin-filled? Maybe something else.<br><br><br><br>
Ugh. No help, I know, but maybe you're better at the search function than I am and could do a search for ravioli. I'm thinking you could use the ravioli dough and make other types of pasta.

The only time I had vegan pasta noodles was when my mom had a pasta machine...as far as I remember it was just water and flour...I think she used regular all purpose flour...it was good...not as good as when she made egg noodles though. Sorry I can't be of more help.

That's the exact problem I had, too. *sigh*<br><br><br><br>
Btw, thanks for the links above. I'm going to keep those for later reference.<br><br><br><br>
(At least, I won't have to avoid gluten forever! But for now, it sure seems like it! LOL)

Hey, I've never actually made it and these recipes are by weight but I thought I'd pass it along. Scroll down and someone has a recipe for making vegan gluten free pasta noodles. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"> HTH<br><br><a href="http://www.veganforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5916" target="_blank">http://www.veganforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5916</a><br><br>

i've bought homemade dry gluten free pasta before, at a farmers market, but not tried to make it myself. my bf is keen on trying it, but having seen the mess he already makes putting watermelons in the juicer, (you wouldn't believe it, lol!) i'll try and stall for a bit, i think pasta could be equally messy!<br><br><br><br>
back on topic- the stuff i bought was 2 types, one made from bean flour, one made from red lentils. it was ok, but if i cooked it even slightly wrong, it turned into a weird gloopy sticky slimy mush, lol. i found out after i'd used it (always the way!) that apparently it cooks better if you steam it. it must be tricky to do without the gluten though- thinking about pastry and similar stuff i try and make, i assume yours turned to sticky mush too, or fell apart before it got to cooking?<br><br><br><br>
if it did, perhaps a product like this organ gluten replacer i've seen might help? i think its made from pea protein or something equally bizzarre! i've never used it (too lazy, lol), but it looks interesting- and might be worth a shot! i've seen it in some healthfood stores, as well as online. orgran actually have a gluten free pasta flour mix on their site too- perhaps you could get the ingredients for it, from another online gluten free store, (as they don't seem to list them here- grrr!) and see what they used to make it work?<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.orgran.com/product.php?content=display&category_id=24" target="_blank">http://www.orgran.com/product.php?co...category_id=24</a><br><br>

hey, good luck with it! i keep seeing on the boards how you've embraced your gf period, and it makes me smile- you've learned way more than i have in years, in such a short time! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I use tofu in my pasta instead of eggs and it works just fine.</div>

Well, I mixed a bit of water with (white) rice flour with some ground salba (works like flax seed meal in that it's a great egg replacer/thinkener) and even sprinkled in a tad Xanthum gum. Kneaded it a little. I ran it through the juicer with the pasta attachment several times. The first few, I was making a huge mess. So, I grabbed it all back together, balled it and ran it back through but slower.<br><br><br><br>
Still a big mess and couldn't get it to stay together in such a way as to put it in the pot w/o it clumping together in one huge mass. (I need to rent a video on pasta making or take a class or something... I can't imagine even with regular flour how one keeps the noodles separate and from clumping.) Anyway, I had the water boiling... so I took the juicer and had it positioned so it dumped the noodles as they came out right in to the pot. I simply cut it off every so often.<br><br><br><br>
Then, I let them cook. I started testing after 3 minutes and kept on going. I ended up having them in there for a while cuz they just didn't seem right.<br><br><br><br>
I finally ditched the whole thing b/c it wasn't anything like the rice noodles that I buy. Mine were mushy and still tasted uncooked, no matter how long I boiled them. Bleah. A really yucky flavor. I can't imagine how the mfgr's do it and only use rice flour by itself. Wish I were a fly on the way in one of those plants so I could see for myself.<br><br><br><br><div class="quote-container"><span>Quote:</span>
