Recipes Almond Pasta Created by Chef Christine Farkas on behalf of Almond Board of California Difficulty Easy Total Time 1 hour Ingredients 2 cups Almond flour, blanched, finely ground 3/4cups Tapioca flour (or starch) 1 tbsp Egg white powder 1 tsp Xanthan gum 1/2 tsp Sea salt 1/4 tsp Garlic powder 1 tsp Parsley, freeze-dried, finely cut 1/8 tsp (pinch) Black pepper, finely ground 4 Eggs, large, whole Preparation Combine finely ground almond flour, tapioca flour, egg white powder, xanthan gum, sea salt, garlic powder, freeze-dried parsley, and black pepper thoroughly in a medium bowl and create a small well in the middle. Add 4 whole large eggs to the prepared well and mix with a fork until fully incorporated and a dough ball has formed. Lightly dust a work surface with tapioca starch (or other preferred flour) and knead the dough until it is smooth. Add a small amount of flour as needed so that the dough is pliable and not sticky. Roll out into a flattened disk and cut into four even pieces. Wrap three of the four pieces of dough to prevent from drying out. Roll out the dough to a thickness of 1.5-2mm. Cut into desired pasta shapes (farfalle, fettuccine, etc.), and set aside on a lightly floured surface to prevent the pasta from sticking. Continue with the remaining dough. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Stir in the prepared pasta and cook for 4-5 minutes, or until the preferred texture has been reached. Strain and toss with your favorite sauce. Enjoy immediately!
