Low Carbohydrate Spaetzle Dumplings
1 ½ cup Soya flour
2 tsp Xanthan gum
1 ½ cup warm water
½ teaspoon of salt
In a large bowl combine flour, salt, and eggs. Pour water into flour mixture to make a soft dough and stir until smooth (the dough should never be watery).
In large bowl combine eggs, flour, salt and the half amount of water and mix well (electric mixer preferred) add xanthan gum and the rest of the water. You might use less or more water, because the consistency of the flour grinds vary.
Bring 8 – 16 cups of water with 1 tsp. salt to a boil in a large pot. Reduce to simmer. Place the Spaetzle Board on top of the pot over the simmering water. Pour a portion of the dough unto the board. Using the plastic scraper, press the dough back and fourth through the board into the simmering water. Remove the board and bring the water to a short boil. The ½ inch long dumplings (pasta) will then float on the top of the water. Remove the pasta with a slotted ladle and pour it into a bowl. Repeat this process until all the dough is used up.
Cleaning: Just rinse the Spaetzle Board under cold water and place into the dishwasher.
