1 1/2 cups chickpea flour
1/4 cup tapioca flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons olive oil
- Mix the flax meal and warm water into a small bowl and set aside for at least 5 minutes to form a "flax egg" that will be a replacement for a realgar "egg" to bind all ingredients.
- Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the chickpea flour, tapioca flour, salt and Healthy Crunch Matcha Instant Latte Powder in a large bowl.
- Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and add the flaxseed mixture. Stir until large crumbles form, then add the oil and knead with your hands until the dough comes together and can be formed into a ball.
- Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and set aside for 30 mins.
- Bring a pot of salted water to a boil.
- Dust a large surface, your hands and a rolling pin with chickpea flour, and roll the dough out until very thin sheet of pasta.
- Slice into long strips to your desired shape of pasta.
- Once the water is boiling, add the pasta and cook for 1-3 mins or until al dente.
- Drain and serve hot with your favourite pasta sauce. Happy Crunching!
