Gluten Free Egg Noodles Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups gluten-free 1:1 baking flour (like King Arthur Measure for Measure or Bob’s Red Mill)
  • 1/2 cup tapioca starch
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-2 tablespoons of water (if needed)

Equipment

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Whisk
  • Fork
  • Clean, flat work surface
  • Rolling pin
  • Sharp knife or pizza cutter
  • Large pot for cooking
  • Colander

Instructions

Make the dough

  • Combine the gluten-free flour, tapioca starch, xanthan gum, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
  • In a separate, smaller bowl, whisk the eggs, egg yolk, and olive oil until well combined.
  • Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients. Slowly pour the egg mixture into the well.
  • Using a fork, gradually incorporate the flour from the sides of the well into the wet ingredients.
  • If the dough is too dry, add water 1 tablespoon at a time until it becomes a workable consistency.

Knead the dough

  • Once the dough forms a shaggy ball, transfer it to a lightly floured surface.
  • Knead the dough for approximately 5 minutes, until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let it rest at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Roll and cut the noodles

  • Divide the dough into four equal pieces. Keep the unused portions covered to prevent drying.
  • Generously flour your work surface and rolling pin. Roll out one portion of dough into a thin rectangle, about 1/8 inch thick.
  • Dust the dough lightly with more flour. Fold the dough loosely over itself a few times, like a letter.
  • Using a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into thin strips of your desired width.

Cook the noodles

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil.
  • Gently drop the noodles into the boiling water. Cook for 2-4 minutes or until they float to the surface and are tender but still slightly firm.
  • Drain the noodles using a colander.

Tips

Using a Pasta Machine: You can use a pasta machine to roll out and cut your dough for a more uniform result.

Drying Noodles: To store noodles, you can dry them out by spreading them on a floured baking sheet or hanging them on a pasta drying rack for a couple of hours.

Be Patient: Gluten-free dough can be slightly more delicate than traditional dough. Handle it gently and don’t overwork it.

Enjoy your homemade, gluten-free egg noodles in your favorite soups, stir-fries, or pasta dishes!
