Vegan Pasta Dough

This dough is a fine substitute for traditional Italian pasta dough, and can be used to make delicious vegan filled pastas. Let your fingers be your guide, and adjust water or flour until you have a proper texture to your dough. The dough will firm up during the rest time, and it should be well floured when rolled out.

Vegan Pasta Dough

Vegan Pasta Dough


  • 2 c (8oz or 227g) Better Batter Gluten Free Flour, plus extra if needed
  • 1 Tbsp(1/2 fl oz or 15ml) Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp (5g) salt
  • About 1- 1/2 c (8-12fl oz or 236 – 354ml) hot water — note you can use hot aquafaba instead to boost the protein and increase the binding power!
  • yellow food coloring (if you wish, to mimic egg yolk)


Mix the flour and salt into your mixing bowl.

Add the water/aquafaba and oil (and optional food color) to the flour/salt mixture and knead until smooth – this should take about 2 minutes on high speed of your stand mixer or about 12 minutes by hand. If the dough seems too dry add a little more water (don’t add too much, because you want the dough to be firm but not sticky). If the dough seems too wet, add a little more flour. The dough should resemble playdough or modeling clay.

Shaping. Roll, cut, fill and shape as desired. Let shaped dough rest for at least 1 hour before you cook it.
