Today I have more fun with homemade natural blue food coloring for you: All-natural blue pasta! 😀
- 200g flour
- 200g semolina
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 200ml water
- some drops of homemade natural blue food coloring
- baking soda
Knead together all ingredients. Add some drops of natural blue food dye and some baking soda.
Using a rolling pin, roll out the natural blue pasta dough and cut it into strips.
Bring water to a boil. Slowly add 1/2 tsp baking soda to the water: it’ll fizz and bubble furiously! Cook noodles till they rise to the top (for about 1 or 2 minutes).
You’ll have to experiment a bit till your pasta is true blue – not green or purple. Red cabbage dye is ph sensitive: the ph level of your tap water will affect the color of the pasta.
Natural blue food dye doesn’t affect the taste of the pasta: Your blue pasta won’t taste of red cabbage or baking soda! 😉
