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
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)
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 eggstogether 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.
9. You can refrigerate your fresh pasta for up to a few days. You can also freeze fresh pasta.

Support Me & My Work
I have been blogging about real food, alternative health, and about the dangers of vaccines and Big Pharma since 2007. As a result, the cabal has punished me severely financially via the IRS, FTC, hacks, etc. I lost my blog network in 2014 which I now believe was an orchestrated attack. Last summer, I lost 80% of my income from my blog due to the Google algorithm change that impacted almost all health bloggers including Dr. Mercola.I'm now working to build my blog and YouTube channel and I appreciate all the support from my fans. Once I can start making more money, I will be able to hire some help and childcare, so I can create more content. Thank you for any help you can offer. Here are some ways you can support me as a content creator and journalist:
- Support me on Patreon (I'm still setting up the bonuses from the tiers but you can start donating now).
- Buy my shampoo or skincare. Want more info? Read my review of MONAT. Or click here to learn how to order MONAT and save the most money. Got questions? Send me an email at email@example.com with any questions or if you need help placing an order.
- Send me a donation via Paypal: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Enroll in my online course: Online Marketing Simplified. Updates to the course are temporarily on hold so I can cover Q -- but I will be back to adding course lessons as soon as the storm is over and we are out of quarantine -- any week now!
- If you can't help financially, it's OK! You can help by sharing my content. Share my blog posts, YouTube videos, and Facebook & Instagram posts, and leave me comments. Sharing helps get my work seen -- and liking and commenting helps boost the content in the search engine algorithms.
