Homemade Rice Flour Noodles!

Gluten free substitutes aren’t always healthier options. Depending on what you choose to substitute with can provide more benefits than just the gluten aspect. When it comes to most pastas, rice noodles can be a healthy alternative to egg noodles and can be used in pretty much all traditional Asian recipes. Since rice noodles contain no wheat, they are gluten-free and a great alternative for anyone with celiac disease or gluten intolerance.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Rice Flour
  • 1/2 cup Potato Flour
  • 1/3 cup Cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon Himalayan or Iodized Salt
  • 1-2 tablespoon Olive or Avocado Oil

Another benefit of using this alternative is that rice noodles only contain about 100 calories per serving, so this can be a good option for anyone also trying to be conscious of weight or their calorie intake. Although rice noodles are low in calories and high in carbohydrates, they contain less fiber than traditional wheat based noodles (1 cup of cooked rice noodles has 1.8 grams of fiber). Studies show that fiber supports beneficial gut bacteria, good digestion, and blood sugar management. So if you are using rice noodles, make sure to supplement fiber in other areas of your diet.

Preparation:

  • Sift dry ingredients into a bowl, repeat 3 – 4 times
  • Make a “well” in the center and add the oil and the eggs or enough water to equal 2 eggs.
  • Gradually draw dry ingredients from the edges of the bowl into the liquid to form a stiff dough.
  • Use your hands to knead the dough into a smooth ball. Generously dust board and rolling pin with rice flour.
  • Roll out the dough as thin as possible.
  • Cut into noodles.

The pasta is now ready to cook or can be frozen uncooked for later use.
Cook in boiling salted water for about 10 minutes or until al dente.

Notes:

  • Dough is fragile and needs gentle handling. It is not suitable for use in a pasta maker.
  • Vegetable oil is variable, add enough to make a smooth ball.
  • Rice Noodles will require longer cooking time than wheat pasta does.
  • Food processors are not recommended in this recipe’s preparation.

    Quite frankly, I was skeptical at first. I am gluten-free and always on the lookout for new GF options to try. This noodle blew me away! It’s got amazing taste and texture, but it’s also so much better for you than traditional rice noodles.

    This recipe is definitely a hit

    Homemade Rice Flour Noodles are delicious! I love the taste and texture. They are also gluten free, egg free and dairy free which makes it great for anyone with food allergies.

    The noodles tend to be a bit too soft though so I would recommend adding some xanthan gum or guar gum if you want a firmer noodle.

    I’ve been using Homemade Rice Flour Noodles for a few months now and I’m craving them every day.

    They are so versatile, which is perfect for my picky toddler. They can be used in any dish from stir fries to spaghetti.

    I didn’t think that I would be able to find an organic, gluten-free, dairy-free and soy-free noodle option for my daughter’s allergy restrictions. Homemade Rice Flour Noodles has been a total life saver! My daughter can now enjoy noodles like everyone else in the family again and she is so much healthier for it.

    great option for vegetarians!

    these noodles are sweet!

    My son is gluten intolerant and I was so frustrated with all the GF noodles I tried. None of them had a good mouthfeel or taste, so I was relieved when my sister-in-law recommended this to me.

    The noodles are made from rice, so they have no gluten or dairy in them. This is an all-around healthier option, but if you’re aiming to reduce your sugar intake it may not be the best choice

    I used to only eat foods that were gluten free, but I noticed it was making me feel sluggish and tired. I tried PF Changs before, but their sauces were made with wheat flour so it wasn’t the answer either. Recently I found these noodles that are gluten free, egg free, and soy free. They have a really good texture and they taste amazing!

    Homemade Rice Flour Noodles is a great substitute for gluten free, egg free and soy free noodles. I’ve been cooking with these for over a year now and they are the best ever!

    When I started having to eat gluten free, I had a hard time finding food that was as delicious as what I would make for myself. That’s when my mom came across Homemade Rice Flour Noodles and I was hooked.

  16. voltiredejesus

    I love the fact that this recipe is gluten free and can easily be made vegan or vegetarian by substituting the chicken with tofu, tempeh, or vegetables.

    These are a great option for someone looking to eat gluten free, and/or dairy free.
