Gluten Free Homemade Spinach Egg Pasta #1
1 c superfine brown rice flour (or other flour of your choice)
3/4 cup cornstarch
scant 1 cup tapioca starch
1 cup potato starch
3/4 cup sweet rice flour
1 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum
1 tsp. salt
10 oz. or a little more fresh spinach, a little water
3 T olive oil
Lots of cornstarch
Microwave fresh spinach with a little water for about two or three minutes and try to drain water. Then place in food processor and process until spinach is pureed.
Whisk together dry ingredients (brown rice flour through salt) and then add to the food processor with the spinach. Whir together and with processor running, add eggs one by one and finally drizzle in your olive oil.
When a ball of dough forms in your processor, remove and place in a piece of saran wrap, wrapping up into a nice ball. (You may need to use two pieces, placed to form a cross.) Let dough rest for about an hour and then remove one forth of the dough into a smaller ball.
Lay a piece of wax paper and then saran paper on your rolling surface. Sprinkle with lots of cornstarch and then place your dough ball on it. Sprinkle the ball of dough with more cornstarch and cover the dough with another large piece of saran wrap. Roll out dough as thinly as possible into a long strip of pasta and then cut into lasagna sheets. Peel off saran wrap to get sheets of pasta. You can use a sharp knife to separate the pasta from the saran wrap if it helps. (This is especially important if you roll it out on wax paper and not saran wrap.)
You can use immediately in lasagna or boil the pasta for a few minutes and then drain and use.
