Vegan Homemade Pasta 🌼 Flowered Lasagna Sheets




Ingredients:

- 1 cup whole wheat semolina

- 1/3 cup whole wheat flour

- 3/4 cup warm water

- 1/2 teaspoon salt

- 1 teaspoon turmeric powder

- 1 tablespoon matcha powder (or substitute with spinach)


Directions:


1. Prepare the Pasta Dough:

- In a mixing bowl, combine the semolina and salt. Gradually add half of the flour while mixing.

- Slowly pour in the warm water and knead the mixture for at least 5 minutes until it forms a smooth dough.


2. Color and Shape the Dough:

- Divide the dough into portions for colouring. For the vibrant sheets, allocate approximately half for green, a quarter for yellow, and a quarter for natural.

- Incorporate the turmeric into one portion and matcha powder (or spinach) into another, kneading until the colours are evenly distributed.


3. Roll Out the Dough:

- Dust your work surface with the remaining flour and roll out each portion of dough thinly using a rolling pin.


4. Create Patterned Sheets:

- Cut flower shapes from the yellow and natural dough, then arrange them onto the green dough to form a pattern.

- Gently roll over the dough to ensure the flowers adhere securely.


5. Shape the Pasta Sheets:

- Use a ravioli cutter to trim the edges of the sheets into desired shapes for ravioli, lasagna, fettuccini, cannelloni, or any other pasta creation.





In this video, I made spinach and vegan ricotta lasagna.





For the Vegan Ricotta:

- 1 block (about 14 oz) firm tofu, pressed and drained

- 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast

- 2 tablespoons lemon juice

- 2 tablespoons olive oil

- 1 clove garlic, minced (or garlic powder)

- Salt and pepper to taste


   - In a food processor, blend the pressed tofu, nutritional yeast, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, salt, and pepper until smooth and creamy. Adjust seasoning to taste.
