  • 3 1/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp baked baking soda
  • 1 1/2 cups cold water


  • (To make baked baking soda: sprinkle soda onto a parchment lined baking sheet and bake at 275 degrees for one hour. Store in an airtight container in cool pantry.)
  • Dissolve baked baking soda into water. Combine that with the flour, until dough is formed. If dough is crumbly, add a bit of water until formed. You want the dough as dry as possible, not wet and sticky. On a floured work space divide dough into 4 sections and begin rolling out with a pasta roller, into large sheets, setting the rollers to a smaller and smaller sections as you go. Dough should be about 1/8 inch thick. 
  • Finally, feed through the spaghetti setting, flour the strands and set aside while you continue to work on each batch.
  • To cook the noodles, bring a large pot of water to a boil and salt generously. Boil noodles for 2-4 minutes, testing for tenderness until done. Strain immediately in colander, and rinse with cold water until cooled.
  • Serve in a broth with desired veggies and/or meat or tufu.
