Making the Pasta.
Mix the egg replacer with water to create 8 eggs and set aside. Place flour in a large bowl and form a well in the center of the flour. Place half the egg mix in the center of the well and proceed to mix in the flour a little at a time with a fork. As you mix more of the flour it will start to form a dough. You will need to add the remaining egg replacer as needed to completely make the dough. The dough will feel like slightly firm and not sticky.
After the dough is mixed roll into a ball, wrap in plastic wrap and set aside in a cool place for 20 minutes.
While the pasta dough is resting, In a large skillet: Heat olive oil and red pepper flakes together. Saute chopped onions till translucent, add garlic, mushrooms & add half the spices. Add broccoli to mix and cook for 2 minutes more. Add cherry tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes. Add 1 cup of vegetable stock and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes until stock cooks down. Add 3 1/2 cups of Almond milk and remaining spices and simmer for 5 minutes. In a separate container add 1/2 cup of the Almond milk and Wondra Flour and mix. Add mixture to your vegetables and bring to a boil then simmer for 20 minutes.
On a large flat surface, put a little bit of flour then cut dough into 6 even pieces
and cover them with a damp cloth, you do not want your dough to dry out.
Take one piece of dough at a time and using a rolling pin on a floured surface,
roll out to 1/16th of inch flat. Cut dough into 2 inch squares. Roll each piece of
dough around a straw at a slight angle till the dough is completely wrapped around
then at the end of the tube brush with water to seal it.
