recipe type: vegan
serves: 3-4
To make the baked bicarbonate
  • ¼ cup sodium bicarbonate (This is more than you need, you will need only 1 tsp. This makes enough for 12 batches. It will keep indefinitely in a sealed container.)
To make the noodles
  • 1 tsp of the baked sodium bicarbonate
  • 200 grams plain flour
  • 100 ml warm water
Bake the sodium bicarbonate
  1. Spread the ¼ cup of sodium bicarbonate on a foil or paper lined baking sheet and bake for 1 hour at 120 deg C.
Make the noodles
  1. Take 1 tsp of the baked bicarb and store the remainder for later use.
  2. Dissolve the 1 tsp of baked bicarb in the warm water.
  3. Add the liquid to the flour and mix into a dough. It will be quite dry.
  4. Knead for 5 minutes.
  5. Wrap the dough and rest for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Roll out thinly and cut into fine noodles. I used a pasta machine to roll and cut the dough.
  7. Cook in boiling unsalted water for 1-2 minutes, drain, rinse and use in your favourite recipe.
