Gluten-Free Roux

Recipe

Gluten-free roux works just as effectively to thicken flour-based sauces, and occasionally gravies, as regular flour-based roux. Have some in the refrigerator; it will keep for up to two weeks. Make it in small or large quantities for future use.

Ingredients

  • 1 stick (4oz) butter
  • 5 tablepoons (2oz) cornstarch
  • ½ cup (2oz) rice flour

Directions

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the cornstarch and rice flour. Combine the mixture with a wooden spoon and cook for 2 minutes on a low heat, stirring occasionally.

    This recipe should say to cook for 20 minutes - not 2 minutes. There is no way that a proper roux can be made in 2 minutes. I just made this recipe & it was 20 minutes on the nose.
