Hand made Hemp Pasta and Hempuccine

Hand made Hemp Pasta and Hempuccine

Cook Time: 1 hour


  • 500 g Plain flour or strong bakers flour
  • 25 g Hemp protein powder (for the green pasta) or
  • 25 g Hemp hearts (for the white pasta)
  • 4 Free range whole eggs
  • 6 Free range egg yolks
  • 2 tbsp Hemp seed oil


  1. To make this delicious hemp pasta, add the flour, salt, eggs, egg yolks and oil into a food processor. Whiz up all ingredients until mixture becomes like coarse crumbs. Tip this into a bowl and gather into a ball with your hands.
  2. If you don't have a strong enough processor put the flour into a large mixing bowl, make a well in the centre and add the wet ingredients to the centre and mix with your hands to form a dough.
  3. Cut the dough into 2 equal parts and fold the hemp protein powder into one half and the hemp hearts into the second half of the dough. Turn on to a lightly floured surface and knead well until the pasta dough is smooth and soft, but not sticky.
  4. Wrap each ball into cling film and leave to rest for 30 minutes or so.
  5. Take a piece of dough about the size of a kiwi fruit; keep the rest well wrapped to stop it drying out. Flatten the piece of dough to a rectangle, about 5 mm thick. With the pasta machine set to its thickest setting, feed the dough though two or three times. Adjust the setting by one notch and repeat. Continue in this way, narrowing the setting by one notch each time. Dough will get progressively smoother and more elastic. When you reach the thinnest setting, the pasta is ready to be cut, filled and shaped as required. Repeat with the remaining dough.
  6. For ravioli or tortellini, simply cut the required shapes from pasta sheets. For tagliatelle, allow the sheets to dry for 10 minutes before cutting-drape them over a clothes airier or the back of a clean chair. Meanwhile fit the pasta machine with the tagliatelle cutters. Pass the dough sheet though the machine cutters, keeping the noodles separate as they emerge. When the pasta sheet has passed through, lift the noodles on to a tray, twirling them into a nest as you do so.
  7. To cook have a pot of water on a rolling boil, add a splash of hemp seed oil, then add 2 handfuls of the fresh pasta into the pot at a time and cook for 2-3 min till tender. Scoop them from the hot water and cool under cold running water to stop the pasta from cooking.
  8. Drain and immediatley drizzle toss the pasta in some hemp oil to stop the pasta from sticking.
  9. Add your favourite sauce or use our favourite hemp pesto you find here.
