Sprouted Flour Pasta

Want to learn how to make sprouted flour pasta at home? You’ll be amazed at how easy it is — and how delicious it tastes.

I love pasta. Unfortunately most pasta is made with white flour, which means it’s not very nutritious. I used to buy brown rice pasta, but I don’t buy it anymore because of the high levels of arsenic in brown rice.

If you want to make the most nutritious and delicious pasta for your family, try my recipe for Sprouted Flour Pasta.

Why Sprout Whole Grains?

We all know that it’s better to eat whole grains because they are more nutritious. However, in addition to vitamins and minerals, whole grains contain phytic acid and other anti-nutrients. Unless phytic acid is broken down, it blocks the absorption of important minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc.

When we eat whole grains, we’re eating the bran, or the outer part of the grain. That’s where the anti-nutrients like phytic acid are contained. To get optimal nutrition from whole grains, it is best to sprout and/or soak whole wheat, oatmeal, corn, brown rice and other whole grains.

Sprouted Flour Pasta

Ingredients

Sprouted flour, sifted or unsifted (3 1/2 cups) — where to buy sprouted flour
Eggs, pastured or organic/cage-free (4 extra-large or 5-6 large) — where to buy eggs

Equipment

Pasta Maker
Pasta Drying Rack

Directions

1. Pour the flour on a counter or large cutting board.
2. Make a well in the middle of the flour and add the eggs.
3. Using a fork or your fingers, mix the flour and eggs together until a dough forms.
4. Knead the dough, using the palms of your hands.
5. If the dough is too sticky, add more flour, 1/2 cup at a time. If the dough is too dry, add another egg.
6. Lightly flour the board or counter and continue kneading for 5-10 minutes.
7. Wrap the dough in plastic or cover with a damp dishcloth and set aside for 20 minutes at room temperature. Do not skip this step; it is important that the dough rests.

8. Using a pasta maker, flatten the dough and and cut as desired. You can also use a rolling pin and cut out shapes such as ravioli, or use a knife to make lasagna. You can also use the KitchenAid Stand-Mixer Pasta-Roller Attachment with your KitchenAid mixer to make spaghetti or linguini — hang strings on drying rack until ready to boil.
