Ingredients
  

  • 150 ml of water
  • 330 g of bread flour
  • 60 g of baby spinach
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt to taste
  • Luhan chinese noodle

Instructions
 

  • Add baby spinach into a blender or food processor (depending on the one available)
  • Blend the baby spinach at a high speed until smooth.
  • In a mixer, add bread flour, and salt. Whisk thoroughly.
  • Set the mixer to low speed,  add the blended spinach mixture. Allow the flour to absorb water from the spinach on each addition.
  • If you are using a mixing bowl, keep stirring as you add the spinach blend gradually.
  • After 5 minutes of mixing properly, the result will be a shaggy green dough, if the mixer does not give you the perfect dough you desire, then bring it out and neatly knead the dough together with your hands. 
  • At this point, don't add water as it will affect the texture of the noodles.
  • Cover the dough with an overturned bowl and leave to rest for thirty (30) minutes. (During the time of rest, the mixture will absorb moisture and it will become more stretchy and easy to work with)
  • After 30 minutes, knead the dough with your hands to eliminate any accumulated air. Knead dough into a desired ball shape.
  • Cut the dough into two parts, take each of the dough parts one after the other, and roll onto a flat surface covered with flour.
  • Flour both sides evenly and fold the dough to get 4 layers. 
  • Slice the noodles with a sharp knife to get your level of desired thickness. For a clean-cut, use a pasta cutter.
  • Toss sliced noodles into flour to prevent them from sticking.
  • In a pot of boiling water, add your noodles and cook for about 1 to 3 minutes. (Time depends on the thickness or thinness of flavor)
  • Taste to determine if the noodles have reached a well-cooked point or not.
  • Enjoy noodles with soup or your favorite sauce.
