Now that you’ve mastered gluten-free pasta and noodles, why not mix things up by adding different ingredients to your pasta dough. Gluten-free beet pasta is both a culinary and visual feast. The beets give the pasta a fantastic color, making it a great option for dinner parties when you really want to impress.
To make your beet pasta:
1. Bring a large pan of water to a boil and add your washed and trimmed beets.
2. Cook for around 0.75 hour or until the beets are soft.
3. Once cooled, peel your beets and use either a hand-blender or food processer to purée until smooth.
4. After adding your dry ingredients to the pasta maker, mix your beet purée into your gluten-free pasta dough to create this eye-popping dish. If you’re making your pasta by hand, add the purée to the dough when you mix in the egg and flour. Knead thoroughly to work the beets into the dough. As you go along, you’ll be able to feel if the consistency is too wet and whether more flour is needed.
With the right equipment, it really is this quick and easy to make three different gluten-free dishes. The versatility of the pasta maker will ensure your gluten-free fresh pasta and gluten-free noodles are just as delicious as their originals!
