    3. Knead for ten minutes.

    4. Let rest for ten minutes.

    5. Roll out into rectangle as thin as you can manage.

    6. Slice into strips of the desired length and thickness with pizza cutter. Leave on counter to dry while making soup. We doubled the noodle batch and set aside half of it on a cookie rack to dry completely so it can be bagged and stored for later use.

        Hi Melbelle, for this recipe we used whole grain einkorn flour. Generally on our website, you can assume it’s the whole grain unless we specify all-purpose.

      About how long is “until noodles are cooked”? I really miss chicken noodle soup and look forward to trying these noodles. I’m relatively new to einkorn. I’ve made two different bread recipes, and a chicken pot pie with einkorn crust. I think I’m getting the hang of it, but more importantly, my husband seems to love the flavor.

        Hi Molly, the length of time depends on how thick your noodles are and how many you put in the pot. Since they are fresh and not dehydrated like store bought pasta, they should not take too long. I would estimate between 8 and 12 minutes. You can keep checking until they are the consistency you like. I hope that helps!

      So thankful for this noodle recipe. Cooking with Einkorn flour has a learning curve, and I have been struggling. My homemade beef and noodles was one of the things I was known for. So making the noodles like I normally would with the Einkorn was hard. Your recipe is wonderful and makes it so much easier! Thank you so much! Would love to post a picture of my noodles! Wow! I so appreciate this site!
