Faux Pasta Paleo Low Carb Recipe
Note: Serves 2 @ 4 carb (2 NET carbs)
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup soy protein isolate
2 T vital wheat gluten*
1 T soy flour
1/4 cup water
Mix first 4 ingredients; add egg and water and mix to get bread type dough. Add more water if necessary. Roll out and cut into strips, or pinch off into little pieces. Drop into boiling water and let boil 1-2 min. (Not too long or it will get gummy). Drain and top with sauce.
*The vital wheat gluten I use (Hodgson mill) has 2 carbs and 1g fiber per Tbsp
This was surprisingly good. I used about 1/2 cup water, and the dough was a little too sticky to roll out. I didn't want to add any additional flour, so I pressed with my hands until it was as flat as I could get it, then cut it in strips. Many of the strips fell apart, but I just dumped it all into the boiling water and boiled for 2 min, stirring most of the time. There is very little taste (just like real pasta) but this has a great texture.
