Easy Gluten-Free Pulse Pasta

Easy Gluten-Free Pulse Pasta

by Nick Saltmarsh

Making fresh gluten-free pasta from scratch couldn’t be easier with our pulse flours, with or without a pasta machine.

Hodmedod's Yellow and Green Pea Flour both make fresh gluten-free pasta that's easy to work and has a superb taste and texture.

The fresh pasta can be made from scratch in about 15 minutes. Cooked fresh it takes just 1 to 3 minutes, depending on the thickness of the pasta.

Serves 2

Ingredients

Method

  1. Weigh the pea or bean flour into a large mixing bowl, make a well in the centre and add the oil and egg.
  2. Combine the ingredients thoroughly until the dough holds together well and has a springy consistency. Fingers work best but a food processor can be used for this step if you prefer. Add more oil or water if the dough seems too dry.
  3. Leave the dough to rest, wrapped in clingfilm or covered with a damp tea towel. The dough should be rested for at least 5 minutes but 30 minutes is better if time allows. The dough will keep well for up to 24 hours if wrapped and refrigerated.
  4. Place the dough on a work surface dusted with flour and roll out flat.
  5. If using a pasta machine, feed the rolled dough into the machine with the rollers on a wide setting, fold over on itself and feed through again. Reduce the setting and repeat until the pasta is the required thickness.
  6. Without a pasta machine just roll the pasta on the floured work surface, fold and roll again, repeating until the pasta is the required thickness.
  7. Cut the pasta into the desired shape manually or using the pasta machine cutter. Tagliatelle, maltagliati and lasagna sheets all work well.
  8. Cook in vigorously boiling salted water for 1 to 3 minutes, depending on the thickness of the pasta. Or use lasagne sheets to replace dried pasta.

Farmer's Pea Pie
Farmer's Pea Pie

Inspired by classic British Shepherd's Pie but using split green peas in place of traditional lamb mince, this Farmer's Pea Pie from the Cook & Him makes an equally comforting and satisfying vegan alternative. A splash of soy sauce and a dash of our umami paste give a wonderful depth of flavour. It's deliciously topped off with a rich yeasty root veg mash.

Wrinkled Pea Masala
Wrinkled Pea Masala

by Nick Saltmarsh

Inspired by Felicity Cloake's Perfect Chana Masala, this simple but satisfying recipe substitutes whole wrinkled peas for the usual chana or chickpeas. It's delicious with either (or just about any whole pulse) but the especially high resistant starch content of wrinkled peas provides more nourishment for your gut flora.

This pesto really shows off our delicious and tender shelled hemp seed, evocative of pine nuts and hemp seed. With our fermented fava bean umami paste taking the place of the usual Parmesan cheese, this happens to be vegan.
