Homemade Noodles, Egg-Free


Post by community member:

When I think “Homemade Noodles”, I think egg-noodles–every noodle recipe I’d ever come across had eggs in them. Even the recipes included with the pasta machine all have eggs in them!

But if you look at the ingredient listing on a box of store bought pasta–semolina, durum flour, niacin, ferrous sulfate (iron), thiamine monoitrate, riboflavin, folic acid; processed in a facility that uses egg–eggs aren’t in there! Sure enough, semolina flour by itself makes a great noodle or pasta! It’s what we eat when we buy the boxes out of the store.

How to make Homemade Egg-less Noodles/Pasta:

Mix together 2 cups semolina flour, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 cup warm water. It will be quite dry like until you start kneading it all together. If you have a pasta machine that mixes everything together, follow those instructions. I use the food processor. It’s a lot stiffer than kneading bread or egg noodles. But it needs to be kneaded quite a while in order for the gluten in the semolina flour to be worked through.

Knead for about 10 minutes until it is nice and elastic-y. Roll quite thin. I did this with my pasta machine, but you could do it just as easily with a rolling pin.

Cut as desired. This recipe makes all of this! Both flat and spaghetti noodles.

Now, you can use it fresh, hang it to dry to store, or wind into a nest and freeze it.

That’s all there is to it! Egg-free noodles! I was quite impressed with the texture and taste–just like the store boxed noodles, only better. Never before would I have believed a homemade noodle without eggs would taste good. I probably won’t give up my egg noodles for the homemade chicken noodle soup, though!

    I saved your recipe as I always seem to be out of eggs when it’s time to make noodles. Didn’t find your recipe for Chicken Soup….would love to have that one.

    While I love egg noodles, I’m sometimes out of eggs when I want to make noodles. Hadn’t thought to make them without. Thanks for the recipe, Cindy!
