Gluten-Free Buckwheat noodles (for Pizzoccheri)

I have not found a good recipe online for making buckwheat noodles without wheat flour added. Annoying! Anyway, here’s my version. It’s very simple

2 cups buckwheat flour (sift to remove buckwheat bran if desired) + more for dusting, adjusting dough
3 eggs
1 tsp xanthan gum

make a mound out of buckwheat flour. Break eggs into flour. Add xanthan gum. Whisk ingredients together. Knead the dough for several minutes. You can speed this up slightly by using a stand mixer with the bread ball attachment. You need to finish by hand though. The dough should not be sticky and should not break apart. If the dough is sticky add some buckwheat flour. After kneading, set ball aside in a bowl for 20 minutes and put a towel over the bowl. Run through pasta maker. The dough should not tear or break apart when run through the maker. Boil for about 3 minutes.
