Spinach Tofu Pasta Dough
2 cups all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons flax seed meal
1 teaspoon salt
3 ounces regular firm tofu (I use lite)
2 handfuls spinach
1 tablespoon olive oil
flour, as needed for dusting
1. Mix together the flour, flax seed meal, and salt. In a blender or food processor, combine tofu, spinach, and olive oil. Pulse a few times to get it started and add water little by little until able to fully blend into a homogeneous mixture.
2. Combine the wet and dry ingredients until fully incorporated. Knead dough for around 5 minutes adding a little bit of flour as needed until dough stops being sticky.
3. Roll out and cut into strips. I recommend you invest in a pasta machine, it just saves so much time and effort! Boil water for pasta.
4. Put pasta into boiling water and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring for the first minute to avoid clumping, and tasting to make sure the doneness is to your liking.
You can top this with just olive oil and garlic and it's amazing, but I like it with a chunky tomato sauce! I know it sounds weird because of the flax seed meal and tofu, but it's really good, and good for you too!
