Day 194: Rainbow Pasta
Rainbow pasta is so fun to look at and eat! Instead of using food coloring, I used vegetables to color my pasta. This way it's totally natural.
I divided my dough into fourths and colored each one with turmeric (yellow), beet (red), ube extract (purple) and spinach (green).
When you flavor your dough make sure to knead it a LOT. If you don't, you'll get a marbled appearance with your dough. The ube dough took the longest to knead
together, but in the end it looked so cool! Just make sure to wear gloves, my hands got stained purple. 🤦🏽♀️ Also note that your water might get purple when you cook your pasta.
If you don't have ube extract you can also use blackberry juice but make sure to strain the seeds out of the juice.
If you want to change the lightness or darkness of the color of your dough, feel free to experiment. Just keep adding flour and knead until it stops sticking.
