Adventures in Noodle Making




Well, as promised, homemade low-carb noodles! These were so easy, it was ridiculous.

  • 2 cups Bob's Red Mill Low-Carb Baking Mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup cream
  • some water

On a clean cutting board or counter, pile baking mix and make a well in the middle. Add egg and cream to well and beat. Gradually mix in baking mix to wet mixture. Mix into a workable dough (add extra water if necessary, you don't want it quite as well as a bread dough).

Now, I wish I had a pasta maker, but I don't. So I just rolled them out and cut with a pizza cutter. If you remember correctly, I made these while I was sick, so I didn't try very hard. They are a little on the thick side. Normally I would have separated the dough into three or so batches, but this was all I could muster. And they were perfect for what I needed.

I dried them for about an hour before I added some into chicken stock with chicken, a few herbs and some green beans from the pantry, canned last summer :) The perfect meal for a sick day.

The rest of the noodles I let dry for the rest of the day. I am storing them in the fridge though, since the baking mix has flax seed and some other things that don't always store well at room temp., like almond meal.

  1. yummy! Think I might have to try this. I am planning a trip to Bobs Red Mill this month. Been wanting to do it for about a year now. Thanks for the great recipe!
    Note:Just read recently that Bobs Red Mill is owned by their workers now. What a great company!

  2. I am completely jealous that you can go to Bobs Red Mill. I have to get mine from the grocery store or Amazon!
