Vegan Ramen Noodle Dough from scratch
How to make vegan ramen noodle from scratch!
I am working on a series on how to make vegan ramen. This is part1 how to make ramen noodles from scratch. In the next article / video, I am going to show you how to make vegan soup from scratch. So stay tuned!
Once you make noodles at home, you won't go back to store bought ones. Why? Conventional noodles tend to contain eggs, msg, preservatives and coloring. If you are vegan and or care about your health, I highly recommend making ones at home!
It is super delicious and not that difficult. Only 4 ingredients!
Does that sound exciting? Let's get started!

This recipe creates 2 serving.
1 cup (163g) Semolina flour ( You can substitute with all purpose flour)
1/4 cup + 1teaspoon (65g) water
heaping 1/2 teaspoon *baked baking soda (You can omit if you don't have)
1 teaspoon vital wheat gluten powder
If you want to make baked baking soda.
When baking soda is baked it transforms from sodium bicarbonate into sodium carbonate, a stronger alkali.
Baked baking soda is often used in pretzel and bagels. It creates chewy consistency.
CAUTION: Sodium carbonate is CAUSTIC. If you have young children, be sure to KEEP IT OUT OF REACH. It is considered a non-to-mild irritant for the skin and a mild-to-severe irritant for the eyes. Excessive contact may cause irritation with blistering and redness. Flush skin with soap and water for at least 15 minutes.
Here is a great article to read more about sodium carbonate. https://www.nytimes.com/2010/09/15/dining/15curious.html

Using a rolling pin, roll the dough over the bag until it spreads all the way to corners.
Take it out of the bag. Cut into half and place the second half back into the bag.
Feed into a pasta machine, starting with the widest setting. In my case number 0
Feed a few times with the widest setting. It'll make it smoother
Turn the dial to the next setting. In my case number 1
Keep rolling, then turn the dial until you reach the thickness you like. In my case number 6
