Homemade Vegan Pasta Recipe


Today I have for you a very simple yet delicious vegan pasta recipe. I have to say I wanted to make this recipe because I wanted to use my pasta maker with my Kitchen Aid mixer that we've never used since we bought it years ago. However, after making the pasta dough I realized there was a part missing! So needless to say I had to do some improvising and make the pasta the good old fashioned way with a rolling pin and knife. The pasta still ended up being a great success and was quite delicious. I will order the missing part and do yet another pasta recipe, only next time I'm thinking whole wheat ravioli.

  • 5 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (I used 365 organic unbleached all-purpose flour)
  • About 1 1/2 cups water 
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon tumeric

Note: This makes a lot of pasta, and you can always reduce the measurements. Also, you can add more flour or water as needed to make sure the consistency of the dough is right; you don't want it to be sticky or tacky but you also don't want it to be too dry.


  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, tumeric, and salt. 
  • Make a well in the flour and pour in olive oil and water.  Gradually combine ingredients, adding more water as needed. 
  • Knead the dough on a floured surface for about 5-10 minutes or until texture is smooth. 
  • Cover dough and let sit for 20 minutes. 
  • Cut dough into several different sections (about 7)
  • Roll out each section of dough using rolling pin on a floured surface (or using a machine) using flour as needed so your dough doesn't become sticky. 
  • Starting with the end closest to you, fold the rolled out pasta sheet a few inches (going away from you), and then continue doing this until you have a flat jelly roll shape.
  • Using a sharp knife, cut the jelly roll pasta dough forming your desired width. I made a pappardelle shaped pasta, about 3/4 inches thick. 
  • Lay pasta strands on a floured towel and dust them with flour. 
  • Let the noodles sit for about 10 minutes before cooking them, and then cook them in salted water for about 5 minutes. Cooking times vary widely so keep an eye on your pasta to tell when it's ready.
