Homemade pasta simply tastes best. Plus, it contains only the ingredients you use to make it. So you can make your pasta without egg. Whether you use spelt flour or wheat flour is up to your taste. You can create colorful noodles with spinach, beet, tomatoes or aromatic pasta with herbs just like normal white pasta. Moreover, it is quite easy to make pasta dough yourself. It’s best to prepare a double or triple amount of it and make the noodles in stock. This way you will always have a portion of homemade pasta and you will only have to cook it and serve it according to your taste.

Serve homemade noodles without egg

You can prepare and serve your homemade pasta any way you like, just like store-bought pasta. How about a pasta casserole, for example? Or fry the vegan noodles in a pan together with vegetables. A noodle soup warms you from the inside on cold days. A pasta salad is perfect for a barbecue. With vegetarian meatballs and a vegetable salad, homemade pasta is a full meal for lunch. Or serve your pasta in a classic way with a sauce or pesto, such as basil pesto or wild garlic pesto. You can also make a delicious vegetable lasagna with the vegan pasta dough.

Storing vegan pasta

You can either cook the homemade noodles directly or preserve it for a longer period of time. This way you can also make a large amount of pasta in advance and store it for later. You can dry it or freeze it.

Freeze vegan pasta

  1. Roll the noodles generously in flour and form it into several pasta nests.
  2. Dust a kitchen tray with flour and spread the pasta nests on it.
  3. Let the homemade pasta freeze on the tray in the freezer for a few hours, then transfer it to a freezer bag.

Frozen noodles then needs to be cooked for about twice as long as the fresh pasta until it is done.

Drying homemade noodles without egg

The best way to dry homemade pasta is to let it hang. There are extra pasta dryers for this purpose. Or you can hang the noodles on a clothes rack. Depending on the room temperature, drying could take a few days. If you want to dry your pasta faster, you can dry it in the oven. To do this, spread it evenly and thinly on a baking sheet lined with baking paper and let it dry in the oven at about 40 °C convection for a few hours. The thinner you spread the noodles on the baking sheet, the faster it will dry. You should open the oven door every now and then so that the liquid can escape and mix the noodles briefly every now and then.

How to make colorful pasta: pasta dough recipe with spinach, beet & co.

If you need a change from the classic noodles, you can make your pasta in different flavors by adding vegetable puree or herbs to the dough. In doing so, you’ll not only spice up the pasta’s taste, but also its appearance and get green, yellow or red noodles, depending on the vegetables you use. Here I explain how to do it.

How to make green pasta with spinach or basil

  1. Pour boiling water over spinach, let it steep for about 10 minutes and then pour off the water. Add fresh water to the spinach and puree it.
  2. Prepare the noodle dough as the recipe says below, but replace the regular water with the spinach mixture.

If you are using basil for the pasta, simply puree fresh basil along with a small amount of water and then replace some of the water with the basil puree in the noodle dough recipe.

Make yellow noodles with pumpkin or turmeric

  1. Core pumpkin, cut it into pieces and bake it in the oven until it is cooked. Puree it afterwards.
  2. Prepare the pasta dough as the recipe says, but replace a lot of water with the pumpkin puree.

For the pasta with turmeric, simply add some turmeric powder to the regular pasta dough while kneading.

Prepare pink noodles with beet

  1. Peel beet, cut it into small cubes and put them in a saucepan with water. Boil the beet until it is cooked and then puree it directly in the water.
  2. Prepare the pasta dough as indicated in the recipe, replacing the normal water with the beet liquid.

How to make red pasta with tomatoes and no eggs

To do this, simply replace some of the water in the recipe with tomato paste.

Make aromatic noodle dough with herbs

Chop any herbs, for example parsley or basil, and add them to the regular pasta dough while kneading. Use only herb leaves without stems. Otherwise, the stems can cause the dough to tear when rolled out.

How to make lasagna sheets

You can also make lasagna sheets from the same pasta dough. To do this, roll out the pasta dough thinly and cut it into sheets. You can adjust the size of the lasagna sheets directly to your casserole dish. Then you should pre-cook the lasagna sheets for about 2 minutes before you make a lasagna out of them. Without precooking, the lasagna sheets will taste very doughy in the lasagna because they will not be fully cooked. The pre-cooking time depends on how thick you rolled out the lasagna sheets.

This homemade pasta is

  • vegan – without egg,
  • delicious,
  • spiced up with vegetables and herbs,
  • tastier than store-bought,
