What's going on! I wanna find out how I can make bread and pasta from basic plant recipes, instead of running to the grocery store every day. Bread and pasta are becoming more and more scarce and mega prices are on the horizon. I wanted to find out if could make amaranth flour to use for bread or pasta, among others. Please let me know if there are any other ways to make plant base bread and pasta. Thanks!

The two that spring to mind are:

Corn -> Corn bread
Buckwheat -> Buckwheat noodles

Hey! You'll find a lot of recipes for bread and pasta here. Most are plant-based or easily adaptable (if you mean vegan), and some people are experimenting with that they grow (if you mean based on what you've got in your yard).

There is an epic homemade pasta thread:
https://permies.com/t/106307/kitchen/making-pasta
This thread at the very end talks about subbing various flours:

and as for bread.... have a search in the Bread forum!

Edited to add:
I think that the epic pasta thread talks about making spaetzle, which I think is a great "gateway" pasta recipe that doesn't require rolling or hanging noodles or really any finicky business. You can squeeze it through a spaetzle maker or do it oldschool with a cutting board (my favorite) and because you don't have to roll it out and worry about crumbling or anything, it's a great pasta to test different flours or additives with.

Could we grow buckwheat and amaranth in containers to keep them from invading the rest of our yards? I have some native wildlife plant gardens that I wanna maintain. I don't mind having some amaranth or sunflower as short term food sources for wildlife, but I don't want them to reseed themselves year after year. Is there still time to plant buckwheat before frost hits?
