Gluten-Free Egg Noodles

Making your own gluten-free noodles doesn’t have to be daunting.

By far, the easiest to make homemade are egg noodles. Best part, you don’t need a pasta press or roller. You can make your own GF egg noodles without any fancy equipment at all. And it’s so satisfying, so why not give it a try.

 

To make a small batch: enough for 1 person to have a good amount, or 2 people to have as a light side dish, follow the recipe below. And keep in mind that the recipe here is very easy to double, triple or quadruple as you like.

  • ½ cup gluten-free 1-to-1 flour blend

  • ¼ tsp fine sea salt

  • 1 large egg

 

In a shallow bowl, combine flour & salt. Make well in center to hold the egg. Crack egg into the well.

Using a fork, beat the egg, gradually incorporating flour into the egg. Keep stirring & pulling more flour in until a solid dough forms. The dough will be really sticky at this point.

Turn dough out onto a well-floured surface. With well-floured hands, knead dough, until smooth and firm. If you need to add a little more GF flour, that’s okay. This process takes about 5 minutes.

 

Wrap dough in plastic wrap (or put into a small plastic bag). Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. (If you want, you can leave it in the fridge for hours, even overnight.)

On well-floured surface, roll out dough to desired thickness, but the dough shouldn’t be any thicker than ¼” at maximum. As you roll out the dough, rotate the dough to keep it from sticking to the work surface. (It helps to be fairly liberal with additional GF flour at this point.)

Using a sharp knife or a pizza cutting wheel, cut the dough into strips. The strips can be as thin or wide as you like. Likewise, you can make the strips as long or as short as you like.

Gently lay the cut noodles onto a cooling rack. Let them sit until ready to cook. (If you’re not planning to cook them on the same day, let the noodles dry out & then store them in an airtight container at room temperature until ready to cook.)

Bring a large pot of well-salted water to a rolling boil. Gently drop the noodles into the water. Boil until tender. Cooking can take anywhere from 2 minutes to 10 minutes or more, depending on the thickness of the noodles. Check the noodles often during cooking to see how they’re doing.

When noodles are cooked to your satisfaction, drain them and use in your favorite recipe or just serve with butter/margarine, salt & pepper.

Delicious!
