Yield: 1 pound pasta dough, 4 servings

In this recipe, from Gluten-Free Pasta by Roben Asbell, powdered whey gives the dough strength and structure. Find the guar gum and xanthan gum at health food stores or online.


• 3/4 cup arrowroot starch, plus more for dusting your work surface
• 1/2 cup tapioca flour
• 1/4 cup sweet rice flour
• 1/3 cup millet flour
• 3 tbsp whey protein powder or 3/4 cup nonfat dry milk
• 1 tbsp guar gum
• 1 tsp xanthan gum
• 1/2 tsp fine salt
• 3 large eggs
• 3 to 4 tbsp water


1. Measure the arrowroot starch, tapioca flour, sweet rice flour, millet flour, whey protein, guar gum, xanthan gum and salt into a bowl or the work bowl of a food processor and stir or pulse to combine.

2. Add the eggs and 3 tablespoons water, and stir or process until the dough gets stiff. Transfer dough to an arrowroot starch-dusted countertop and knead for 3 minutes, until smooth and flexible.

3. Wrap and let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes, then shape as described in Shaping and Cooking.
