Hemp Pasta
  -  Fresh Hemp Pasta


225 g hemp flour(ground dried hemp seed)
225 g plain flour or Italian pasta flour
A pinch of salt
4 eggs
1 tablespoon of cold pressed hemp oil


Mix the two flours and salt then sift onto a wooden board. Make a well in the centre and drop in eggs and oil.

Using the fingers of one hand mix together the eggs and oil and gradually draw in the flour. The mixture should be a very stiff dough.

Knead for about 15 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Wrap in polythene and leave to relax in a cool place for one hour.

Roll one small piece of dough out at a time until paper thin. Cut into required shapes.

Allow to dry; hang noodles over the clean handle of a broom suspended between two chairs; lay small shapes on a wire rack or dry tea-towel. Leave for at least 30 minutes before boiling.
